Blissful Journey Randy & Shelley Knapp

This 2015 handheld wood kaleidoscope was made from turning a blank made from three layers of laminated, solid wood with integral feet attached to eliminate the need for a separate base.  They had a black turning end.  They had a fluid filled cell, side lit with a black background and dichroic windows on the side of the cell.  Apparently some were made with an end piece that was layered with black, white and black plastic and others had just black plastic at the end.  All had some degree of decorative turning on the end plastic..  The ones with layered plastic ends ended up with black and white colors on the end piece.  The cells contained flame worked glass in either a bright or pastel palette.  They have a 2M/6P mirror system.
