Kaleidoscope - 'Long Small Flower Wheels' in Brass by Roy Cohen
This kaleidoscope style is small, but it certainly packs a punch! Roy employs a large range of techniques in this style, including using his signature dark brass patina to resemble an antiqued finish popularized by the Victorian, "steam punk" genre.
The very vibrant 3-mirror mandalas (interior images) in this kaleidoscope are created by the two independently turning wheels in an unusual, decorative shape. The one facing you when you look through the eyepiece creates the foreground of the mandalas, whereas the other wheel creates the background. The wheels consist of beads and baubles in orange, blue, pink, aqua, and many other colors.
The kaleidoscope rests on its custom metal stand, also created in an unusual shape. The kaleidoscope itself measures 7-3/4" long by 1" in diameter (at the wheel end). The set stands 2" tall.
