Pastelator is an entirely ornamentally turned kaleidoscope. Every part of these kaleidoscopes was turned on the Rose Engine Lathe, including the unique domed shaped object cell.

The exterior of the object cell is ornamented with a 12 loop epicyclodial pattern to match the 12 sides of the dome object cell.  Pastelator has a two mirror system which produces an eight pointed star. The highest quality front surfaced mirror is used in conjunction with a magnification lens making the optics crisp and clear. The fluid filled object cell contains individually lamped worked glass pieces by both Shelley and Randy Knapp. Their combined experience and different techniques make for some beautiful glass sculptures. The side lite object cell accentuates the beauty of their glass. The final touch is a hand rubbed finish which enhances the dept and beauty of the grain in the Blackwood. Each Pastelator is individually signed, numbered and dated by the Knapp’s. Pastelator is 2 3/4” by 7 1/2” and includes a Blackwood stand. ” – a limited edition of 6 made in 2007 Pastelator is an entirely ornamentally turned kaleidoscope.
