Kaleidoscope - Mushroom #3 in Slumped Glass by Yoshiko & Takeo Matsumoto
We are so excited to bring Yoshiko and Takeo Matsumoto's unique one-of-a-kind Mushroom series to the United States.
Mushroom kaleidoscopes are handcrafted with a gorgeous multi-colored slumped glass body tapered in the middle and wider at the top housing an interior glass encasing the mirror system. The rounded cap of the mushroom, adorned with small rectangular glass pieces, houses the rotating liquid object cell filled with lamp-worked and dichroic glass pieces.
This kaleidoscope features an internal 2 mirror system producing an amazing 11 point round mandala image surrounded by a glowing halo of color. The primary color inside is a rich blue accented by red, green, pink and aqua with hints of dichroic glass offering a rainbow of additional color. Shine a light against the object cell and watch as the glass objects dance and sparkle inside.
This handheld kaleidoscope measures approximately 9-1/4" tall by 3-1/2" in diameter at the object cell end. The scope arrives in a custom wooden box.
