Five Stone Cairn Kaleidoscope

Metal & Stone Sculpture

Created by David Corbin
For years, stacking stones (cairns), have served to memorialize people, locations, a lasting friendship, or events. Or cairns are created as a marker of a forgotten path that needs to be experienced again.

Having always been fascinated by kaleidoscopes, Corbin decided to bring back the timeless kaleidoscope with an added twist. Functionality, as well as an aesthetically pleasing structure, plays the major role in each of these pieces. A rotating bowl allows the viewer to participate in the creative process by adding their own elements into the kaleidoscopes thus creating infinite visual designs.

The cairn kaleidoscopes bring out the beauty and serenity of the natural rocks and allow them to come to life. This sculpture features natural rocks carefully drilled, pinned, epoxied, and stacked to form a unique shape. Using stones, three hand cut glass mirrors, hardwood bases, and bronze powder coated metal tubes, Corbin creates a sculpture that will satisfy the viewer's appetite for an visual and stimulating experience. The natural elements add a zen-like feature to any decor.

The five stacked rocks vary in color and size and may vary from each kaleidoscope. The viewer may fill the bowl with whatever they choose. Flowers shown here are not included.
