FROM RONA MOODY
Just been reading an article from a newspaper, June 1818, which talks of the invention of a kaleidoscope by Sir David Brewster, Scottish physicist.
What particularly interested me was the article talked about its use by artists in various art forms, including stained glass, and said "its adaptations to their purposes has been attended to".
I have never come across a stained glass design made by using a kaleidoscope. Wondered if anyone else here has?

I have made several kaleidoscopes from stained glass and seen designs based on looking through a kaleidoscope. Judy Killian has a beautiful piece based (I think) on a Spirograph design - similar. Jim Perkin makes stained glass kaleidoscopes and I think there is a Facebook group.
