The 34 ‘scopes finally appeared at British Week in Osaka. Around half of them have been sold so farRead More
A shipment of 34 kaleidoscopes is currently on its' way to Japan for inclusion in a "Handmade in UK" event later in the year (watch this space for details)
I will be exhibiting and selling along with 50 or so of UK's finest Craft Designer/makers, in the beautiful setting of Salisbury Cathedral. Accompanying the exhibition there will be demonstrations, talks and other events, together with delicious refreshments.
One of my best customers asked me to create something special. No brief, just a budget.
I came up with "Cassini", inspired by the eponymous spacecraft which is currently completing a 13-year exploration of Saturn and its' moons with a "Grand Finale" in which it orbits between the planet and its' rings before burning up in Saturn's atmosphere in September.
This unique kaleidoscope produces images resembling the planet and its' rings, seen from two different angles.
