Kaleidoscope - Handcrafted in Spalted Hackberry by Ben Birdsill
We are so happy to have Ben's lovely 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 spalted hackberry wood in a barrel design. Inside you'll find a 2 mirror system producing large and vibrant 6-point mandala imagery against a black background.
Measuring approximately 7-1/4" long by 2" at the eye piece end and 2-1/4" at the object cell end. Sits approximately 3" tall on its custom wooden base.
