Amber kaleidoscope

Invented in 1816 by Scott David Brewster, Scottish by origin, it did not elicit a positive response financially. In a typical kaleidoscope, there are two-three rectangular mirrors that are placed lengthways against the tube. The mirrors duplicate the images of the objects within the tube when it is rotated, displaying beautiful designs and patterns. The two mirror kaleidoscopes yield patterns or a pattern against a pitch black background, whereas a three mirrors or closed triangle model yields a design or pattern that fills the entire field.
Kaleidoscope is a tube with mirrors placed along its side, which contain either loose pebbles, colored beads, or other small colored objects. The viewer looks through one end of the tube, whereas light enters from the other end, reflecting off the mirrors. As the tube is rotated, the colored beads, and pebbles create beautiful symmetrical patterns, due to the reflection of the mirrors.
From the very beginning, this amber kaleidoscope has been designed as an alternative to mass- produced objects to be handcrafted in small quantities by its creator.
The main idea behind the kaleidoscope is its simplicity: both in terms of a visual appearance and the very principle of design and production process. The kaleidoscope consists of a minimum number of components required to achieve a maximum effect. Also, its production process is highly simplified: the core of a branch is hollowed out, all the components are assembled and the kaleidoscope is covered.
This could be considered as the materialization of an idea: minimum outside input and infinity of images inside.
•    fast-growing hazel branches have been chosen as the best possible raw material for production of the kaleidoscope and only one piece of stock of the proper length ( for 8-12 items) is cut from one tree;
•    the kaleidoscope is crafted by hand, without removing the bark, without using any dyes or impregnation agents (100 % natural);
•    kaleidoscopic images are formed by a mini-system of crash proof plastic mirrors therefore the product is light and safe for kids (aged 3 years and above);
•    the kaleidoscope contains reused materials: inside of the kaleidoscope, pieces of amber are amber waste created through jeweler manufacturing process (cracked, unusable fragments);
The kaleidoscope is handmade using sustainable resources of energy and nature (fast growing hazel stems and natural Baltic Sea amber).

These handmade environmentally-friendly kaleidoscopes are made from fast-growing hazel branches and filled with natural Baltic amber. The minimalist design is energy- and resource-efficient.
