Vintage Kaleidoscope - Handheld by Marc Tickle 2007

From the Joie de Vivre collection*, this is Handheld by Marc Tickle 2007  

This handheld kaleidoscope features Marc's reverse painting method where he painted on the back side of clear glass to create a one of kind artistic work of art sealed inside the kaleidoscope. 

The rotating oil filled object cell contains Marc's own lampworked glass in gorgeous colors and squiggly shapes.  Small pieces of highly reflective dichroic glass are also included. 

Inside you'll find a 5 point start central mandala created by the 2-mirror system.  This large central mandala is surrounded by bright fuchsia which is created by the addition of a rectangular slice of dichroic glass that Marc added just below the object cell.    

Approximately 12-1/2" long by 2-3/4" at the object cell by 4-1/2" tall.  

*From 1984 to 2020, Linda Given succeeded to bring a little more "joie" to the world from her retail store Joie de Vivre in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Joie de Vivre was well known for its delightful, clever, beautiful, original and just plain wacky gift items ~ and for its wonderful collection of handcrafted and artistic kaleidoscopes.  Joie de Vivre closed its doors in November 2020 after 36 wonderful years.  We are honored to bring Linda's remaining inventory to you here.  Please continue to check back in as we work to get all the scopes photographed and posted to this area. These are vintage kaleidoscopes that were on display in the store and do show signs of wear.
