Blue Paperweight by Kent Le Grand

A fine example of Kent’s work this has a beautiful blue swirling around the weight with a red and green interior like the centre of a volcano.  Western Australian artist Kent Le Grand was a remarkable person.  After a car accident left him with only the use of his left arm and using his left foot with his right arm in a sling he retrained himself to create his amazing pieces.  For a right handed person this was extraordinary.
