Lara Evans is a kaleidoscope artist who formed  her small craft business called Colour Vision, back in mid 2002, making her own branch of kaleidoscope manufacturing after successfully working and running The Kaleidoscope Studio in a business partnership with Turid Bergstedt based first in Grahamstown 1991 to 1996 and then, in a small town called Simons Town South Africa from 1996 to  2003. This was a transitional year as the partnership dissolved amicably. Lara ran her small one-woman kaleidoscope craft business successfully in Cape Town from 2002 to 2012, then moved to Johannesburg in 2013 and now runs her one-woman kaleidoscope manufacturing business from Fourways Johannesburg. Where she continues to deliver quality handcrafted kaleidoscopes to her regular loyal shops, corporate clients, and friends.

In Lara’s own words, “It is my continued commitment and dedication to manufacturing and producing quality kaleidoscopes, using colour, crystals, recycled materials where possible. I love working on these amazing little joy bringers, creating unique one-off kaleidoscopes, doing large corporate kaleidoscope runs or building kaleidoscope installations. Anything kaleidoscopic is just my thing”.

Find the joy of kaleidoscopes yourself

Kaleidoscopes are more than just a toy, discover this little-known fact for yourself, look through one and excite your eyes today. This optical instrument produces endless fascinating patterns based on the scientific principle of “reflected symmetry” and are the best known as stress relievers for the executives.
They make excellent corporate gifts and mind focusing tools for learners and school children, to help children study, by focusing the brain through the use of vibrations of light.
