Find Unique and Gorgeous Stained Glass Kaleidoscopes

If you’re looking for an absolutely unique and unusual gift idea, stained glass kaleidoscopes will provide you with some wonderful ideas. Kaleidoscopes are often thought of as toys for children, but the amazing designs featured at KaleidoscopesToYou.com will surprise you with their interesting materials and concepts. In particular, the stained glass options are elegant and striking, completely captivating for both children and adults. It’s important to recognize that the glass construction makes these designs more vulnerable to breaking. Supervision is suggested if children will handle such devices. However, the designs and the mathematical exploration provided in a kaleidoscope make it worthwhile to provide a youngster with the opportunity to experience looking through one of these designs.

Stained glass kaleidoscopes are crafted by stained glass artists and merge the mathematical concepts involved in kaleidoscope theory with the beauty of colorful glass. Workmanship in the pieces offered for sale by KaleidoscopesToYou.com is superior, with elegant soldering and finish work. You will never think of these as simple children’s toys again after you explore the unusual structural and color details available. While stained glass options are captivating, we carry many more interesting options in a huge range of pricing options.

Peggy’s amazing technicolor world of glass!

In early October, we had a wonderful afternoon on the Northeast Iowa Artists Tour. Our destination and purpose was the art glass and kaleidoscope studio of Peggy and Steve Kittleson.

We are always amazed by hot glass work. Peggy allowed us to take video which is hosted on YouTube.
