Peach Vase by Bernard Stonor

The colour of this piece is a wonderful soft peach that fades to almost a cream at the base with a violet rim and a design that is made of fine ribbon canes in a zig zag  pattern evoking an image of a sandy desert at sunset with snake markings left behind in the sand. Created by Bernard Stonor of Kangaroo Island this piece is pure style.

Cream Bowl by Bernard Stonor

This cream bowl with its pink and yellow barley twist cane rim is a perfect compliment to another of his works the “Orange Bowl” as one is bright and vibrant and the other is subdued with muted colours.  Both of these bowls show great technique with the addition of the cane to the rims which is hard to achieve; however Bernie does it beautifully. Note the evenness of the rims and the perfect shape of the bowls.

Possum Glass by Bernard Stonor

This wine glass is made by Bernard Stonor. The main body is a dark purple or port wine colour and a cream rim with some random darker threads mounted on a wine glass base with a short barley twist stem. The base has the addition of seven small impressed seals containing a ringtail possum. These seals are added to the glass in the molten state using a miniature branding iron device. Then the entire piece is iridised giving the rim a gold appearance.
