Shades of Winter Kaleidoscope

Design and Fabrication by Alysa Phiel, Text and Photography by Alexandra Berger

A stained glass kaleidoscope featuring a pyramid-shaped body created by joining three rectangular glass pieces together. The two kaleidoscope wheels are decorated with pieces of glass, and the wheels are then placed in the kiln for either a full or dimensional fuse. Decorative solder is added to the seams of the pyramid to enhance the appearance. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
