Steve & Peggy Kittelson are known for their classical 2-mirror kaleidoscope imagery. The high-quality optical illusions are defined by the incredible display of glass sculptures found in the object chambers.

The Kittelsons have been combining their artistic talents for many years. They began designing stained glass windows. It was their attention to detail and keen sense of design that attracted art patrons to their work. Their windows are found throughout the country in private and public collections.

When they were introduced to kaleidoscopes, they were instantly hooked. They had no idea how kaleidoscopes would change their life. As artists, it has given them an outlet to explore new techniques and ideas in a three dimensional form. Over the years, Steve and Peggy have perfected their techniques. The bodies of their kaleidoscopes are made by fusing and slumping glass.

With careful attention to the image, Peggy creates tiny glass sculptures from opaque and translucent glass in a process called flameworking. This process is an ancient art form that has been incorporated into kaleidoscopes since the first patented kaleidoscope in 1817. Only a few contemporary artists have excelled at the process. Peggy Kittelson is clearly one of them.
