The contemporary kaleidoscope renaissance began in the early 1980’s and Charles Karadimos has played a very active role in perpetuating and promoting this incredible interactive artform from the very beginning.

In this section of his website you will find the work he is currently making available. His work is constantly evolving and improving, pushing the artform to higher and higher quality standards. He has personally designed and created over 10,000 hand-built all glass kaleidoscopes since 1980, including over 150 designs, open editions, limited editions and one of a kinds.

A note on his workbench that reads ... “How can I make a kaleidoscope better?” ... shows his constant drive and desire to always move forward.

The kaleidoscopes in this section will not be available forever.
Just as the kaleidoscope changes, so does the availability of his work.
