Each handmade kaleidoscope by Henry Bergeson is an expression of a lifetime of playing around with shape and form combined with artful engineering that has no peer. All of the kaleidoscopes are designed and built with the finest of materials and with the greatest of care to provide visual delight both inside and out. They are an absolute pleasure to use and will last a lifetime.
During his youth, Henry developed a love for things mechanical. He took his love and ability to a new level with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
He was uncomfortable, though, with the analytical “hands-off” approach to engineering. Through the “real world” job experience, he developed a sense of the design. He was laid-off during the downturn in business in 1987, so he packed up and moved west. In Colorado, his new home, he followed his intuition and tried his hand at kaleidoscope building. And, well…the rest is in the making.
