Kaleidoscope - 'Pedestal Scope' in Pearlescent Pastel Stained Glass by Kathleen Hunt
Kathleen uses a pearlescent stained glass with beautifully rich pastel pinks, purples and blues for the body of this kaleidoscope which is constructed with decorative soldering into an equilateral triangle set on a pink glass pedestal base. She connects the pink glass pedestal base to the body of the kaleidoscope with her very decorative soldering work.
The object cell are two independently turning fused glass wheels that are 3-1/2" in diameter with various pieces of glass in different colors, shapes, sizes and textures. Kathleen adds thin glass strips and round bands to add an extra element of color and structure to the kaleidoscopic images. The internal 3-mirror system and turning wheels allow for widely varying, beautiful interior images.
The kaleidoscope measures approximately 11" tall x 4" wide at the base and 8-1/2" deep (from the tip of the object cell to the eye piece end).
