Created with a kiln bent glass streaming with shades of blue and raspberry, Blue Raspberry is a dual mirror system kaleidoscope making it two distinct kaleidoscopes in one. The right side is a traditional 2 mirror system whose glass oil cell object chamber is filled with beads, wire and baubles in various shades of purples. The left side is a 3 mirror system whose glass oil filled object chamber is filled in various shades of blues, greens and purples. Both sides contain pieces of dichroic film creating an extra burst of excitement.
The top of the body is decorated with a cobalt blue dichroic accent jewel and glass rods on both sides. The flat bottom piece is done in a pastel purple. It's attached to its own brass frame, and finished with Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the eyepiece end and other adornments.
