- "Candy Cane" Kaleidoscope
Handmade in the United States by Bob Rioux, one of today’s premier kaleidoscope makers, this beautiful 7-inch “Candy Cane” kaleidoscope has a traditional three-mirror configuration allowing for an infinitely beautiful pattern. Each “Candy Cane” kaleidoscope, individually signed and numbered by the artist, is a remarkable conversation piece for any room or office, and has been known to relieve stress and promote relaxation.
The outer body of the “Candy Cane” kaleidoscope is made from iridescent glass adorned with hand-twisted Italian glass rods, copper feet, and a dichroic glass jewel on top. The oil-filled glass cylinder, capped in brass, includes dichroic and hand-blown glass pieces, and tiny glass rods and beads resulting in infinitely changing, brilliant mandalas.
As an award-winning member of the exclusive Brewster Kaleidoscope Society, Bob Rioux and his Sea Parrot kaleidoscopes are known for their unique use of dichroic glass and natural themes. Bob takes great pride in creating original and collectible kaleidoscopes for the first time buyer as well as the experienced collector. His eye for detail and unusual choice of glass components make each and every one of his kaleidoscopes a genuine work of art.
