Cheers! Yasuko Nakazato

I have been making kaleidoscopes for almost 20 years.

During that time, I made countless glass tubes into object cases.

I cut them and have kept the leftovers ever since. There are a lot of wasted parts in the glass tube, so I decided to put it in a new kaleidoscope.

This is a large wine glass that appears to be filled with champagne.

The waste glass parts are connected by thin wires and placed around the mirror system, so they look like bubbles.

I painted the bottom of the glass with gold and silver.

The object cell rotates smoothly with bearings.

I used wine cork for the base.

Enjoy the rich vinyl world by looking into the large eye hole.
