"Kaleidoscopic" Art

Just arrived - Another great addition to the store, Kaleidoscopes by The Sea Parrot.
The Sea Parrot is an exquisite collection of handmade glass kaleidoscopes. They are meticulously crafted in a broad color palette designed to surprise and delight the senses.
Kaleidoscope designer, Bob Rioux has been working with glass since 1976. Using creativity and fine craftsmanship he designs and produces beautiful works of art. Bob’s wife and business partner, Elissa comes to The Sea Parrot with 20 years of experience from her business, Elissa Glassworks. A love of glass and textiles has inspired her to design several new kaleidoscopes in the collection.
The Brewster Society, an international organization for kaleidoscope enthusiasts, has honored The Sea Parrot with several awards for its kaleidoscopes. The Sea Parrot is known for incorporating unique fused dichroic glass and iridescent stained glass in their designs, using detailed glass embellishments and having especially brilliant colors in the images within. These kaleidoscopes are in collections all over the world.
The Sea Parrot takes pride in creating unique and original kaleidoscopes for both the first time buyer as well as the experienced collector. Bob and Elissa work from their Kennebunkport, Maine studio where the ocean and the beautiful surrounding nature continue to inspire them. They hope that you enjoy your kaleidoscope as much as they enjoy making it for you!

Great Time Had By All

Yesterday, Saturday March 7th, found masses of people enjoying themselves on the streets of Grass Valley. Well they weren’t really on the streets, for the most part they were in the various downtown shops tasting wine and food from wineries and restaurants participating in “Foothill Celebration”. Jordanwood hosted Coufos Cellars' Winery (see picture below before the crowds arrived), and the Pleasant Valley Grill. Need I say the food from the PV Grill, (cheesecake and chicken), and the wine from Coufous was excellent. The Pleasant Valley Grill is located in Penn Valley and Coufous Winery is located in Rough and Ready - so drop in and say hi.
If you didn’t participate you missed out. Next year mark your calendar for the first Saturday in March, and be part of the throng.
