The Kaleidoscope Project - optical illusion disc

 As part of a uni assignment I am creating a type of kaleidoscope – the viewer will be made from mirrors and the discs will all be different using various forms of architectural glass techniques.

This disc is based on illusion drawings.

I cut a disc of glass and covered it with black glass paint.

Then using a wooden skewer and a straight edge, I scraped away the paint to create an optical illusion within a square shape.


It then went into the kiln to be fired at 650 degrees to set the paint.

Quite happy with the result….


And it looks quite good through the kaleidoscope.
