Artisan Thomas Saunders

When the maillady showed up today she brought me a package from Canada. In it were two of the cutest little boxes....notice the message on the one.... from Tom Sanders. He does beautiful turnings in stone, wood and acrylic. Health problems have prevented him from "turning" much this year and he thought he might not be able to return to it at all. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled across these pieces of his on Esty. Naturally, I snapped them up!

One of the really cool things he does is the little certificate of authenticity. Each piece is numbered and signed. I bought two bowls, a serving platter and a mortar and pestle. You can poke the pictures to make them bigger....



Here're some better side views......


I put the morter and pestle on the serving tray to show better against the pale grey stone.

I haven't found a website or blog for him but you can visit his Esty shop:

I am a big fan of Tom myself and have several pieces from him as well. He has quite a sense of humor, as well. ;)

I'm so glad I found your blog. :)

Thank You for all the wonderful comments about my work. (I'm blushing again)

I am always pleased when folks are happy with the pieces I send them.

Hey Jane ... hows the Pickled Pub coming? Likely no faster than my Tudor ... wanna race?
