Kaleidoscope - Handcrafted in Figured Maple Ogee and Walnut Woods by Ben Birdsill
We are so happy to have Ben Birdsill's Birdsilloscopes here at Cape Kaleidoscopes.
Ben has made a very well designed, handcrafted wooden kaleidoscope with a ball bearing turning liquid oil cell filled with brilliantly colored lamp worked and dichroic glass. This version is made with a body of figured maple ogee and walnut end pieces in a tapered design. Inside you'll find a 2 mirror system producing 7-point mandala 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.
