I wore blue turtleneck, jeans and blue sweater today. And the 3 scopes I’m most enamored with today are all gorgeous and tranquil creations from blue artglass. The kaleidoscopes use traditional stained glass technique as well as modern magic. Blue stained glass kaleidoscopes are what I am enthralled with today.
The first scope that soothes this Monday is the Kittleson Midnight Blue Mystic Rapture. This elegant kaleidoscope has a serene deep blue and the full palate of shades of this dusky blue inside.

Another scope that showcases incredible blue glass is the Bella Sera crafted by Sue Rioux.
This is an hip and modern sculptural statement using traditional stained glass techniques.

The Peek a Box in Blue is handcrafted by Marc Tickle who is inspired by his love of magic and his amazement of mathematics principles.
This scope is actually hidden under an interior panel of mirror that has half of a lampworked, sculpted glass dragonfly mounted onto the mirror.

Steve Kittleson slumps the exterior glass and then uses traditional stained glass technique to create the barrel that holds the fabulous 2 mirror system. Peggy Kittleson lampworks the glass to create the incredible object cell that creates the color inside this kaleidoscope. Enjoy and chase away those January blues!

People often ask us “What is the most popular color in a kaleidoscope?” The answer is blue. Blue is a calm and soothing color; something people are always searching for in the hectic, modern life. And here are some of my favorite Blue scope options covering all styles and prices.
This Liquid Motion Kaleidoscope has a great bang for the buck. Many people describe the interior image as fireworks within a scope!
