Bergeson's Canary wood Time Flies Kaleidoscope is a rare and beautiful sculpture. And it is made to be handled
The canary wood comes from Indian mulberry and tulip wood trees. It has beautiful streaks of orange and red. You may get a fleeting glance or hint of white or black as well. It is an amazing looking kaleidoscope.
The object chamber is unique: an 8.5 inch long, 1.5 inch diameter filled cell with tons of different colored pieces inside. You can turn it and see the contents tumble and twirl. You can also slide it back and forth bringing different elements, colors and patterns into view. The way it is designed, the object chamber pulls in lots of light so your view is always bright and crisp.
The 'scope itself has a 12 1/2 inch long solid wood barrel. The 3 point base is 9 inches wide, very stable and made with Canary and maple wood. Inside, Henry has configured a 3 mirror system which makes the images repeat and "FLY" off into infinity in every direction.
