Master Kaleidoscope Artist: Charles Karadimos

Charles Karadimos: Charles is another of our exceptional stained-glass artists. Unlike most stained-glass artists, Charles deals mainly with slumped and fused stained glass. He has presented a number of innovative kaleidoscopes. Even his small scopes give a great image. My photos are limited by the small eyeholes that he puts on most of his scopes.

Quadracone: This is #4 and is dated 1997. Classic two-mirror system with dry cell. Each of the four faces is adorned with a different color scheme. One of the better dry-celled scope images.
