The scope incorporates a unique piece of dichroic glass (a thin coating of metal over regular glass that allows viewers to see many more colors than the glass itself would allow), creating a golden cavern-like interior. Each kaleidoscope is individually signed and numbered by the artist, and makes a remarkable conversation piece in any room or office. What's more, kaleidoscopes has been known to relieve stress and promote relaxation. The outer body of this kaleidoscope is made from camel-colored iridescent glass adorned with glass rods, copper feet, and a dichroic glass jewel on top. The revolving barrel is made with fused dichroic glass, gems, hand-blown glass pieces, and Austrian crystals.

"In my mind I see a sunset, light off the water or sea smoke. I can see it finished and I make it."
Sue Rioux has been pursuing artistic endeavors from a very young age. She started as a water-colorist, literally selling her paintings at local art shows starting at age nine. This experience taught her the critical color theory she uses to this day. She moved on to creating stained glass art of all kinds for many years. But she found her true niche designing and creating award-winning glass kaleidoscopes. Her creativity seems to have no bounds, with exquisite oil-cell kaleidoscopes, as well as her signature stained-glass barrel styles, all copper soldered and decorated with special glass details. She works from her home studio, surrounded by the nature that inspires her.
