The ARTIK came about one night when my daughter came home with an assignment to do a school project to make a kaleidoscope out of some household materials. I volunteered to help her make it using materials that I thought SHE SHOULD use instead of the household items from the crude list. She said No, she wanted to stick to the teacher's list.
And I said, NO, too. And told her I will make MY OWN.
So it came about that I scoured for some interesting materials locally and made my first ARTIK on the 31st day of March, 2012.
The ARTIK is a handmade kaleidoscope with the beads carefully and proudly handpicked by the artist (myself) from a local beads store. It is a step-by-step process in handmaking the scope, it is creatively adorned with a print of my paintings (there's lot of images In the inventory I tell you).
There is a "science" ,in a way, of making the kaleidoscope to create what it is now - that I think a machine cannot handle in a personal way.
There is a personal touch to the ARTIK. It is MY TOUCH. It can be YOUR TOUCH. The way I want it. The way YOU want it.
That's what makes THE ARTIK diferent from the rest.
ARTISTIC. UNIQUE. HANDMADE
