Inside Out Peggy and Steve Kittelson Contact Peggy and Steve Via Email

Inside Out was a limited edition of 10.  The barrel and eyepiece of this iconic scope were made from glass created by fusing over 100 pieces of dichroic on black glass and clear glass to make a mosaic sheet of glass and then to slump it to make the two halves of the barrel.  The eyepiece end was created the same way.  They then made a sheet of glass using the same technique but using just dichroic on clear glass.  They used this glass as the third side of the mirror system creating an image that gives the viewer the illusion of seeing the inside of the barrel around the central mandala.  The turning end has a fluid filled cell with a black background.  The cell contains flame sculpted dichroic glass on both clear and black substrate.  It has a 2M/8P mirror system.  The barrel is 4 inches in diameter and 14 inches long.
