Another gorgeous turned bowl from Thomas Saunders

I've been stupidly sick the last couple of days -- it's just a cold or something, but it's making me extra draggy -- so nothing really new to post, but I wanted to share this piece which arrived last week.

I'm sure many of you are familiar with the work of Ontario artisan Thomas Saunders, who turns both wood and stone into extraordinary scale pieces of art.  I have a few pieces by him, but when I saw this stunning soapstone and tiger wood fruit bowl in his new Artfire shop, I had to have it!

Tom's shop is Turnings in Miniature, and he's an artist in every sense of the word. He also blogs under the same name.

Here's the bowl, filled with gorgeous polymer clay fruit by Kiva :)  Thank you so much, Tom, I love it and Kiva, I'm so glad to finally have a fruit bowl worthy of your talent!


  1. It is really a lovely bowl/fruit stand. Thanks for sharing the photos. Kiva's work is always wonderful to see!

  2. It's lovely and the fruit goes so well in it:) I love Tom's work

  3. It's so fine! - Tom's work is wonderful.
    Putting his bowl and Kiva's fruit together makes the perfect pairing!!

  4. It's certainly a lovely piece. I hadn't seen his work before - thanks for the introduction.

  5. What a beautiful piece of art! And Kiva`s fruits are as they were just made to fit that adorable bowl!

    A beautiful cup, including content :-)
    Thanks for sharing :-)
    Mini hugs and speedy recovery (I was also influenced and full of snot :-(
