Kaleidoscope - 'Sterling' in Stained Glass by Sue Rioux Designs
Sterling is a stunning work of art in stained and dichroic glass, offering two distinct mirror systems, an equilateral 2-mirror system and an isosceles 3-mirror system, thereby, two kaleidoscopes in one. The two large sides of the kaleidoscope are embellished with round glass gems in varying sizes connected together by Sue's decorative soldering.
The glass turning barrel, adorned with multicolored and very reflective handmade fused dichroic glass pieces, spins freely and easily, providing the viewer with magnificent images in a vast array of colors. The entire piece is finished with Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the eyepiece end, four little feet, and other adornments.
This is a kaleidoscope to cherish for a lifetime. It measures 9-1/2" long x 2-1/4" wide (at the barrel end) x 5-1/2" tall, and stands on its custom glass bead "feet".
