Learning to make a Tumblescope at Sojourn was a lot of fun! Georgia Ferrell perfected the construction of these scopes to a fine art. They are made with solid polymer clay as the card board tube is only a temporary armature. The mirrors inside are especially clear as they have fine silver one one side. Called a tumblescope rather than a kaleidoscope probably as one has to rotate the tube manually, the colours inside are definitely a kaleidoscope of mosaic glass. I plan to make a few more of these. I think I'm hooked! My camera didn't do these images justice, but one gets the idea.
