Kaleidoscope - Infinity by Sue Rioux Designs
Infinity is a new parlor style kaleidoscope for 2020 by Maine artist Sue Rioux. Infinity boasts a turn-table object chamber and the largest single mandala you've ever seen!
The body is made with a buttoned black stained glass in a tall rectangular shape. Two aqua blue glass rods and a multicolored dichroic glass bead adorn the front. The body of the scope sits atop a square base that contains a shelf where the rotating turn-table object chamber sits. The object chamber is a round glass bowl containing beads, strips of glass and charms that spins freely and easily. The contents can be re positioned and/or swapped out for found objects of your choice for an infinite number of kaleidoscopic images. Interior images are created by the internal 2 mirror system providing the viewer with magnificently large and bright 4 point mandalas.
The entire piece is finished with Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a beautiful copper effect.
This is a kaleidoscope to cherish for a lifetime. It measures 9" tall with a 5" by 4" square base.
