Peggy and Steve live and work in Clermont, Iowa.
Peggy and Steve have been creating fine handcrafted kaleidoscopes since 1987 when they combined their stained glass studios. Their goal was to create unique scopes that are not only beautiful to look at but very pleasing to touch and hold. They have achieved this goal by incorporating many facets of their glass craftsmanship, creating kaleidoscopes that are distinctive and original. Their work can be found in major collections all over the world and is in demand by discerning collectors. They are known for their classic 2-mirror kaleidoscope imagery and the highest quality optical illusions are defined by the incredible display of miniature glass sculptures found in the object chambers. the exteriors of their copes are of fused and slumped glass combined with finely machined metal turning ends which house the object chambers.
