This charming koala family is all about the bond between mother and child. The baby koala hangs onto mum as she moves from tree to tree, branch to branch finding the most delicious leaves.
It is such a joy to spot koalas in the bush when out and about. As they sleep most of the day it can be a little hard to find them, especially when they’re so still.
I’ve painted the cuddly koalas originally in watercolour paints – Daniel Smith watercolors in the this case – and then printed them in under glaze so I can fire my painting into the porcelain.
If you like something that is exactly the same as the next one, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you value quality artisan designs that are tactile, beautiful and unusual you’ll love these treasures.
Each koalas family is unique, giving you something special and captivating. Made in an artisan process over a series of weeks in a sunny coastal studio with multiple kiln firings, each koalas family is different and reflects its handmade origin.
The Koalas are part of my series of paintings of Australian animals, including kangaroos, joeys, wallabies, sea birds, platypuses and wombats.
