Kaleidoscope - Unicorn in Brass by Orie Ishii
Orie uses a metal etching process to embellish her brass tubular bodied kaleidoscope with the constellation Monoceros. Monoceros is a faint constellation on the celestial equator. Its name is Greek for unicorn.
When the light enters through the glass object cell at one end of the scope, carefully chosen interior objects such as hand formed glasses, crystals, quartz, amethyst aquamarine, corals and seashells jump into view in the form of a central 8 point mandala with repeating mandalas in the surround that seem to go on forever and ever.
This kaleidoscope stands approximately 6" tall by 1-1/2" in diameter. This kaleidoscope has a natural, handmade appearance.
