Kaleidoscope - 'Narrow with Orange and Green Dichroic' in Aluminum by Koji Yamami
Crisp, clear and amazingly bright 27 point mandalas are created by the interior 3 mirror system of "Narrow", a handheld kaleidoscope in silver aluminum by award winning Japanese kaleidoscope artist Koji Yamami. In this version, Koji has embellished the exterior body of the kaleidoscope with pieces of fused dichroic glass in orange and green.
Slide and turn the clear glass wand tube to create an endless number of interior images. The object cell is filled with tiny colorful pieces of lampworked glass and strips of dichroic film. Note - the interior is much prettier (and more crisp and clear) than these photos show. This is a difficult scope to photograph the interior due to the small eye opening needed for the narrow mirror system.
3 1/2" long by 2 1/8" wide (at tube end) and 1-1/4" wide at the viewing end.
