Visual artist Craig Huber has been creating delights for the eyes and the mind since 1974. Craig has been fascinated with Mandala imagery for more than 25 years when he originally began to design and hand craft Kaleidoscopes. The circular repetitive imagery contained within a Mandala combines his love of symmetry, geometry, metaphysics and astrology. Craig is an inventor, designer, craftsman, astrologer and intuit.

In 1977, Craig began designing and handcrafting his mirrored and stained glass sculptures in a studio behind his home in down town Eugene, Oregon. Selling at Pacific Northwest art fairs, these innovative sculptures gained a national following and have continued to sell in museums, fine art galleries through out the U.S., Canada and abroad. In 1980, Craig had his initial inspiration to become a Kaleidoscope designer and artist and he developed his Kaleidoscope business, Galaxy Glass Works. His Kaleidoscopes have since been featured in Smithsonian Catalog numerous times as well as The Fleet Center Space Museum in San Diego. It was here that he produced a series of oversized exhibit Kaleidoscopes. In the mid 1990's, Craig created exhibit sized Video and Projection Kaleidoscopes for The Gap Stores through out the U.S. In the late 1990's, Craig conceived "ART ANGELS" which is his innovative idea of uniting "art patronage with charitable acts of loving-kindness."

The 21st century finds Craig producing limited edition Kaleidoscopes, Sculptures, designing prints of Mandalas under the name of "Sacred Mandala"and publishing photographs and prints of Oregon. Galaxy Glass Works was commissioned to produce personal Kaleidoscopes for the cable channel Bravo and later its parent company Rainbow Media. Craig has designed and co-produced several large art pieces for the Oregon Country Fair.
