Charles Karadimos brings a fearless hand to each handmade kaleidoscope he creates. Thinking beyond obvious lines and color combinations, his art flourishes with freedom. He believes each component has a destiny, offering his craftsmanship as an outlet through which each stained glass kaleidoscope can realize its purpose and come to life.

And once it has been born, the fun truly begins! We get to appreciate whichever handmade kaleidoscope catches and keeps our eye, being perfect just sitting there, yet somehow even more perfect inside. Perhaps that's what we love most about Charles Karadimos kaleidoscopes; they're like a Christmas present wrapped so beautifully that you think what's inside couldn't possibly compare, then it does!

Great interview between Artist Charles Karadimos and Karl Schilling on the precision and emotion of great kaleidoscopes:

Charles' Artist Statement: "Kaleidoscopes are a very important and influential part of my life. As a scope artist since 1980, I have spent a large part of my life creating and sharing kaleidoscopes with all those around me, hopefully bringing joy to 'children' of all ages as they intimately participate in this interactive art form. The enthusiastic reactions that emerge magically transform the individual spirit, bring a smile to the face, and peace to the heart." - 2013
