“I see kaleidoscopes as a symbol for my life in many ways. Scopes are a very special blending of optics, gadgets and woodworking and they draw together my interests and my passions. I am forever fascinated by the patterns created by the arrangement of the mirrors. The mystique that lies on the other side of the mirrors’ reflection is distilled and intensified in a kaleidoscope. The reflections in my kaleidoscopes are reflections of my life and I continue to be intrigued with the practice of creating these images”.
