Master Kaleidoscope Artist: Don Doak

Don Doak: Here we have a unique talent. Don has developed many mirror systems. While he has been away from the kaleidoscope scene for some time, there are rumors that he will return soon. His scopes have won many major awards.

Zazen: This scope from 1994 is one of three models of virtual reality kaleidoscopes.

Pandora's Box: This scope from 1996 is #14 of 27. It came in two forms. Mine is the version that does not have Cozy Baker etched onto the glass. Objects cells provided include a dark background, a light background, and a fill-your-own-cell. Image is a dodecahedron.

Inside Pandora's Box: This is #1 of 1 from 1997. Image similar to Pandora's Box but can be seen within the dodecahedron. Lighted "planets" surround the dodecahedron.

Kaleidosphere II: This one is number 1 of 10 and was crafted in 1994. It is huge, and I lovingly call it a cannon. The base houses a VCR. The image from the VCR is the object cell for this scope. A sound adjustment knob is provided. Works well with computer animation tapes. My favorite tape to view on this kaleidoscope is the Spectrasphere video.
