Kaleidoscope - Handcrafted in Figured Maple Ogee and Walnut Woods by Ben Birdsill
Ben Birdsill is one of the the newest artist to join the Cape Kaleidoscopes family of kaleidoscope artisans and we are so happy to have him and his Birdsilloscopes here in the shop.
Here, Ben has designed and handcrafted a lovely handheld wooden kaleidoscope with a ball bearing turning liquid oil cell filled with lamp worked and dichroic glass. This version is made with a body of figured maple ogee and walnut maple end pieces in a tapered style. Inside, you'll enjoy a 3 mirror system producing a full field of kaleidoscopic imagery against a black background.
Measuring approximately 7-1/2" long by 1-3/4" at the eye piece end and 2-1/2" at the object cell end. Sits approximately 3" tall on its custom wooden base.
