Mahler Kaleidoscope

The title of this piece was inspired by Mahler's Fourth Symphony. This is one of the three largest Kaleidoscopes I have built. It features a three mirrored interior which provides a seemingly three-dimensional view, and what I call the "spiky orb." It is built from a mosaic of many different woods, and the base is mainly Black Walnut. The mirrors and optics were made by Jonathan Eaton.

Ponds and Rivers Kaleidoscopes

These Maple and Purpleheart Kaleidoscopes are two of a series of three titled the "Elana" series. Both are built using the overlay technique from solid wood. The object cells are interchangeable. The object cell and the mirror system are designed and built by Jonathan Eaton of Cincinnati.

Manywood Wall Art

This pair of wall pieces is comprised by many woods including: Walnut, Mohagany, Maple, Gancalo Alves, Blackwood, Purpleheart, and Ash. These pieces utilize what I call "overlay" technique, and are constructed from solid pieces of wood , not veneer. These examples were built for my siblings.
