Kaleidoscope - 'Peacock in Etched Brass' by Sandra Christie
Peacock is a beautifully handcrafted kaleidoscope with Sandra's own artwork etched onto its 8" tall brass body.
Metal etching is a multi-step process that allows you to create beautiful designs in relief on a variety of metal surfaces. Etching offers endless possibilities with beautifully impressive results. Sandra also added rich maroon and green paints to the Peacock's plumage which wraps around the 1-3/4" diameter of the scope.
The object chamber is a liquid filled, side lite chamber containing Sandra's own lamp-worked glass and grains of sand adding additional texture to the kaleidoscopic imagery produced by the internal 3 mirror system.
This kaleidoscope measures approximately 8" tall by 1-3/4" in diameter. Acrylic stand included.
