This garden kaleidoscope is inspired by trees and the natural cycle of new growth from year to year. The scope holders represent the strength of the roots.
This piece incorporates metal forging as an integral design element to the work which is exciting to me (see pictures 1 for close-up details of these elements).
The material is steel. The center bowl rotates and there is a drain built-in through the center. Three optical teleidoscopes are mounted at different levels on the sculpture to accommodate viewers of varying stature.
