Chikako Ishida's "Snow in the Blue Sky" Kaleidoscope
Chikako chose aluminum for the body of this handheld 2-mirror oil cell kaleidoscope and filled the object chamber with small pieces of glass, wire and dichroic. The interior view, a 6 point mandala, is enhanced by the bright cobalt blue acrylic end piece which she also used on the eye piece end. A sleek and modern kaleidoscope like none other.
This kaleidoscope is 8-1/2" long x 1-3/4" in diameter and sits 2-1/2" tall on its custom wooden base.
