|| Atsuko Hosoi makes
stained glass kaleidoscopes.
In 1999 she was intrigued with a beautiful kaleidoscope
and decided to make them on her own with the guidance
of Koji Yamami.
She got 2 prizes at a juried exhibition, Japan Kaleidoscope
Grand Prix ( 2000 &2001 ).
Since then her unique kaleidoscopes have attracted
many kaleidoscope lovers.
She makes each kaleidoscope with a theme. Her style
is modest and quiet.
She likes to produce quiet, peaceful images. She
also tries to avoid too much decoration.
The following poem shows her love for kaleidoscopes.
sorrows gradually healed....
kaleidoscopes are embodiment
of these invisible feelings within myself.
