The glass Sue chose for the body of this handcrafted kaleidoscope is like a drive down Trail Ridge Road with its swirling greens, browns and blues like the forest and rivers of Rocky Mountain National Park. The turning, fluid-filled object case features beads and baubles in the same colors as well as slices of highly reflective dichroic glass. Look closely and you'll even see wilderness animals as Sue has included two small glass charms in the object chamber - a deer and a brown bear.
Green glass rods adorn the corners, affixed using Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the eyepiece end, four little feet, and other adornments. There are two mirror systems, a 2-mirror and a 3-mirror.
Rocky Mountain National Park is an American national park located in north-central Colorado, within the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The eastern and western slopes of the Continental Divide run directly through the center of the park with the headwaters of the Colorado River located in the park's northwestern region. The main features of the park include mountains, alpine lakes and a wide variety of wildlife within various climates and environments, from wooded forests to mountain tundra.
