Lumie


 

“Lumie” a limited edition of 16. This kaleidoscope is inspired by the luminescent insects found deep within the rainforest that light up at night to attract attention and allow them to find each other.

The body of “Lumie” is a multi wood lamination on top of the barrel with the inlay of a glow in the dark material. They have used wenge and purple heart as the two accent woods on all 16 kaleidoscopes. There are two wooden wenge feet which allow the kaleidoscope to stand on its own.

This kaleidoscope represent the first use of what the Knapp’s call a  “Bliss Point” mirror system. This creates a 25% larger image in the kaleidoscope than their previous work. The tapered 2 mirror system produces a 5 pointed star. The highest quality front surface mirror is used in conjunction with a superior quality glass magnification lens for a large beautiful image. The new “thin line” eyepiece is a nice addition for easier viewing. Inside against a black background you will find 2 new pieces by Shelley called “LumieLites”. “LumieLites” are sculpted glow in the dark pieces that add a totally new element to the image, along with Shelley’s signature lampworked glass and one special Lucini piece. This is a fluid filled object cell lined with dichroic windows which create multiple hues of color within the object cell.  The Knapp’s are well known for this effect.
