Today I am looking at Philadelphia glass artist, Justin Tyner, and his Psychedelic Rose Window Kaleidoscopes. Justin recently emailed me about his windows and his recent trip to Summerville, TN to see the Wholeo Dome.
According to Justin “They are made from scraps of historical stained glass and the bottoms of recycled glass bottles that I find all over the city. The first one I made for
an event here in Philadelphia called Art In The Open. It took me three days to
build it on site along the Schuykill River. It spins in the square frame and is
viewed through a giant kaleidoscope”.

A second window by Justin lives at a the Gallery Belle in Valois New York. A small church
converted to an Art space along the coast of Seneca Lake, one of the Finger
Lakes. Justin told me ”the same method was used to build it although I took my time, it took me three leisurely weeks.
