Kaleidoscope - 'Karonascope' in Turquiose by Charles Karadimos (2020 Limited Edition 15/15)
June 2020 - The kaleidoscopes in this limited edition of 15 pieces feature multi-layer fused dichroic glass designs fused on both sides with raised glass areas adding additional dimension, all slumped into a softened cone-like shape. Inside, a tapered two mirror system produces perfect 10 point symmetrical images.
The free-turning, dry object cell contains a diverse assortment of glass objects including small beads, lamp-worked glass as well as cut, fused and dichroic glass. All pieces are hand created and then specifically selected to produce an infinite number of random images color coordinated to the exterior body color.
These kaleidoscopes are all about 9-1/2" tall. Signed, numbered and dated by the artist.
