Calling on details of much-loved vintage kaleidoscopes, the “Hydrangea” piece from Ino is a wonder to behold in any decade! Clean lines characterize these ceramic kaleidoscopes, which do not have a separate turning chamber. As for how to appreciate them? Simply turn them in your hands for a show-stopping display of color.
Shades of blue and green dominate in the Hydrangea ceramic kaleidoscopes, calling on the flower itself for inspiration. However, you will get peeks at yellow, a hint of orange, and a touch of mauves and pinks for a well-rounded display. Among our favorite Japanese kaleidoscope artists, Fumie Ino truly harnesses the beauty of nature in a way that’s impossible not to appreciate.
