Fine Art Medium: Handcrafted Stained Glass Kaleidoscopes
Bob and Elissa Rioux have been working with glass since 1976. Using their skill and creativity, they design and create glass kaleidoscopes that are beautiful works of art. Inspired by the natural beauty surrounding their studios in Kennebunkport, Maine, and Punta Gorda, Florida, they create unique and original stained and blown glass kaleidoscopes for both the first time buyer as well as the experienced collector. Their artistic creations have been given honors and awards several times by the Brewster Society, an international organization for kaleidoscope enthusiasts, and their work is in collections all over the world.
Bob and Elissa are known for incorporating unique fused dichroic glass and iridescent stained glass in their designs, using detailed glass embellishments, and having especially brilliant colors in the images within. Their kaleidoscopes are available in a variety of sizes, styles, and themes.
