Kaleidoscope - Tumblescope Scallopino by Frank and Janet Higgins
A new handcrafted design from Frank and Janet Higgins, the UK's only full-time kaleidoscope artists.
Scallopino is a handheld kaleidoscope with an end-lit rotating tumblescope object chamber. The body is made with gold sparkle glass soldered together in a triangle shape to house the internal mirror system.
Inside the object chamber you'll find handmade lampworked glass in a variety of complimentary colors. The interior images have an unusual twist! The central mandala has a deeply scalloped perimeter and is surrounded by strongly distorted, but symmetrical repeats. This is a very unique kaleidoscope design.
This kaleidoscope measures approximately 6-1/2" long by 2-3/4" wide at the object chamber end and 1-1/4" wide at the eye piece end.
