Handmade in the United States by Sue Rioux, one of today’s premier kaleidoscope makers, this 6.5-inch Marble kaleidoscope has a special lens that magnifies the image of the beautiful, hand-blown glass marble. The outer body is made from beautifully unique ribbed glass that has been framed by copper and soldered together, adorned with matching glass rods. The three-mirror system, combined with the magnifying technique, allows this little scope to rival that of a much larger kaleidoscope. What’s more, kaleidoscopes have been known to reduce stress and promote relaxation, making it the perfect desk toy and great “portable” gift for kids ages 6+, adults and collectors alike.
As an award-winning member of the exclusive Brewster Kaleidoscope Society, Sue Rioux is known for her unique use of dichroic glass and natural themes. Sue takes great pride in creating original and collectible kaleidoscopes for the first time buyer as well as the experienced collector. Her background in watercolor and eye for detail make each and every one of her kaleidoscopes a genuine work of art that are just as beautiful to look at as they are to look through.
