Although not signed this paperweight is attributed to West Australian artist Kent Le Grand. The weight looks as if it has a lattice work of red,blue and white over a central white orb. The coloured lattice gives the appearance of the stars and stripes flag waving in the breeze encased in a crystal clear body.
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.
This beautiful vase is in a soft aqua colour with splashes of white and caramel swirled through it.Created by Kent Le Grand using his early studio name of “Red Hot Glass Western Australia”. This is a superb piece showing off Kent’s talents from an early stage.
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.
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.
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.
A wonderful wave bowl with an applied foot is colourful with it’s multi-coloured splashes creating eddies around the piece make it quite festive like fireworks in glass. Created in Western Australia by Kent Le Grand it is another superb example of a master glass blower’s work.
This wave bowl is another variation of Kent Le Grand’s designs with a lovely blue and pink swirl through the glass. It is very pretty and can double as a vase or simply a display item.
This pretty bowl is in a clear sky blue in a wavy form with a netting of the same coloured glass that appears slightly darker. It would be perfect for a contemporary home with white walls and a turquoise blue theme. Crafted by well known late artist Kent Le Grand it is one of many designs made by this talented artist.
