Renowned among collectors, Massimo Strino, originally from Naples, now of Australia, crafts some of the world’s most breathtaking kaleidoscopes. Handcrafted in meticulous detail, they transport the beholder to a bygone era and create a sense of wonder – even before peering into the glass to gaze upon the magnificent display of color. Since 2008, Massimo has been dazzling Uno Alla Volta customers with works available nowhere else in all the world.
Our 2014 edition, the “Enchanted Garden” is his finest yet. A feast for the senses, each mesmerizing scope is constructed, in Massimo’s New York City studio, of brass lamp parts and bedecked with hand-carved and polished onyx, richly colored enamels and thousands of meticulously handset Swarovski crystals. Each comes with a crystal encrusted LED flashlight to shine upon the hummingbirds and sunflowers while they revolve to the tune of “Over the Rainbow.”
