A striking sculptural embossed hexagonal brass kaleidoscope.  This kaleidoscope is available 3 ways:  all brass, all satin nickel, and satin nickel tubing with brass fittings.


It has a side lit oil cell and a 2-mirror system.  9.5” x 1.5” and 2.5” with cell.






  is comprised of three distinct, but similar, kaleidoscopes.  9” tall and 2-1/4” in diameter.  Each scope is signed and numbered.


“Manhattan” was the initial kaleidoscope in this series and soon became a top seller.  It is reeded brass plated in satin nickel.  The fittings are polished brass.  The side-lit oil cell shows a 7-point star.


“Manhattan Sunrise” was next introduced.  This kaleidoscope is reeded brass (polished and coated) with polished brass fittings. The image in this oil cell replicates a sunrise.


“Manhattan by Moonlight” Looking like pewter, this all satin nickel reeded brass with satin nickel fittings has a polarized chamber that is vibrant.  Be sure the light comes directly into the end of this cell, created by masterful Glenn Straub, and you will simply say, “Wow.”

Our pets are part of our families.  They are cherished.  This glass kaleidoscope can be etched with most dog breeds.  Your dog’s name can also be etched into the glass, to make this kaleidoscope more special.


The oil cell is side lit and the kaleidoscope has a 2 mirror system.





This series of kaleidoscopes uses vintage telephones as pedestals for the kaleidoscope.  The kaleidoscope size and style is individualized to each piece.  Pictured is “Hotel Amsterdam.”  This beautiful wooden telephone comes from a hotel in Amsterdam and dates to the 1910-15 era.  Please contact me to see what styles are available.

We are all citizens of the world, no matter what language we speak.   It is often said that one picture is worth a thousand words – I believe that some uni versal words are worth a thousand pictures.  In this group of kaleidoscopes, each word is etched onto the glass in a myriad of languages. 

            *  Love – is a thousand pictures

            *  Peace – is a thousand pictures

            *  Thank you – is a thousand pictures

Joy will be added to this series, and others in time.  This open edition, signed and numbered kaleidoscope is 9.5” x 2.5” and has a 2-mirror system and a side lit oil cell.  A polarized chamber is available for a slight amount.

For years, I have wanted to etch the old masters onto brass.  Glass seemed like another natural medium to use – and these etched glass kaleidoscopes are the first in this new series.  Each kaleidoscope is a limited edition of 50, signed and numbered.

They will all come with a 2-mirror configuration and a side-lit oil cell, however, a polarizing chamber is available for a slight amount.  The hand-held kaleidoscopes are 9.5” x 2.5”.

The artists, their titled work, and where this original art can be seen are all etched onto the kaleidoscope.  Included in this first series of Old Masters:

*  Da Vinci – Mona Lisa – 1503 AD

*  Manet – LeBar aux Follies Bergere – 1882 AD

*  Marmion – A Choir of Angels – Circa 1459

*  Van Gogh – A Starry Night – 1889 AD
