Artist David Kalish says: "In designing kaleidoscopes I'm challenged to create objects that are as alluring on the outside as they are within. I don't want the observer to know the piece functions as a kaleidoscope. When that's discovered the viewer delights in the unexpected surprise. It simply boggles the mind that so much beauty can be combined within so small a space. Therein lies the magic!
My designs tend to be sleek and contemporary, incorporating various combinations of metal, wood and acrylic. Many of my scopes feature polished gemstones in oil cells. Optical lenses and precision made mirrors systems transform nature's palate into brilliant, beautifully, often breathtaking kaleidoscopic patterns."
