Unusual Goblet by Kent Le Grand

This very unusual goblet does not have the traditional wine glass base but rather a triangular foot that has been pulled down on the points so that it rests on these. The pattern on the glass is that of green flecks and a subtle network that looks almost like oil spots on water. Crafted by the late Le Grand it is certainly one of his more unique pieces.

Forest Green Gold Bowl by Kent Le Grand

Perhaps one of the last major works of art created by the late Kent Le Grand of Western Australia originally offered to a leading gallery it is now in a private collection. This piece is in a deep forest green with an enormous amount of gold leaf applied to the under side then a trailed decoration of red and blue like toffee is added over the gold. It is mounted on a clear wave swirl base to finish off the design that shimmers like butterfly wings truly a stunning piece. This bowl is a lasting testament to a most remarkable man with only the use of one arm as it weighs more than four kilos and would have been difficult to manipulate on the end of a six foot blow pipe even with an assistant. Few artists with the use of both arms rarely tackle such large pieces as they are heavy and need constant attention while being made.

Oriental Vase by Kent Le Grand

This magnificent vase is in an oriental design mounted on a wave shaped base. The main body is covered in a red leopard like pattern that comes together in swirls around the piece. This item was fumed in silver oxide to give it a richness that appears as a blue background resulting in an oriental jewel fit for an Emperor.

Egg Paperweight by Kent Le Grand

A superb paperweight in the form of an egg showing off the talents of master glass blower Kent Le Grand is an impressive work of art in a small package. This piece is created with a beautiful blue coral like centre housing a single bubble within and a bright red ribbon on one side with gold leaf on the reverse. The gold leaf appears through small fissures in the ribbon giving this piece a brocade appearance.
