This Paretti kaleidoscope – the Cosmic Amorphous Mandala – is a rich, radiant work of art, featuring a hand painted leather exterior exploding with color! Using acrylic paints in metallics, pearls, and vibrant shades, Carol Paretti applies her artist’s eye and careful brush to create unique images that instantly draw you in for a closer look. With bubinga wood fittings at the eyepiece and object chamber, and an anodized aluminum band at the base in a burnished gold hue, this handmade kaleidoscope is already among the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen, and you haven’t even looked inside yet!
The sealed acrylic object chamber is painted to offer a crisp, black background to the interior image. With a fluid motion the glycerin-filled object chamber spins unique pieces to include: fused glass, lampworked glass, dichroic glass, and handpainted pieces of metal. The 2-mirror system creates a 5-point star image, with the third side being a fluted piece of bubinga wood. This unique touch brings a textured banding to the border of the image inside. This handmade kaleidoscope is true work of art!
