Kaleidoscope - Magic Act in Curly Cherry and Spalted Maple by Dan Land
8 Point Full Field Mandala Imagery
Dan says, “When I first learned how to make kaleidoscopes, the most fascinating part of the process for me was adding the magic. It was amazing how adding a little more of this color, or that shaped object, changed the image. I wanted to let everybody feel the 'magical’ thrill, so I designed my kaleidoscopes so you could control the magic. My “Magic Act” style allows you to change out the objects in the kaleidoscope [via the slide-out wooden door], which changes the appearance and color of the interior images. You are in control.”
Toward that end, Dan thoughtfully includes a 5” tall plastic tower container with six small compartments of multi-colored baubles to experiment with, making this handcrafted wooden kaleidoscope endlessly customizable. Of course, you can add your own items, too.
These lovely kaleidoscopes are available in a multitude of wood combinations on each side of the main part of the kaleidoscope body. He also offers several different mirror systems.
The kaleidoscope measures approximately 6-1/4" long x 1-1/2" wide x 1-1/2" tall.
