This handsome wombat is Lord Tasman of the Gum Leaf Order and he arrived one day when I was playing with my water colour paints.
Every girl needs a charming gentleman like this in her life to smooth things over, set a gentlemanly example to others and be a generally good sort.
He wins hearts all over the place but will always remain true.
I’ve painted Lord Tasman of the Gum Leaf Order originally in watercolour paints – Winsor and Newton watercolors in the this case – and then printed him in under glaze so I can fire my painting into the porcelain.
Lord Tasman came about when I was doing my ‘make a mark a day’ playing and I instantly fell in love with him. He warms my heart with his good nature and I feel safe in the knowledge that wombats are very strong and straightforward fellas, none of this double dealing skulduggery with this guy! Only the best! So the perfect fella!
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 Lord Tasman 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 fella is different and reflects his handmade origin.
Lord Tasman is part of my series of paintings of Australian animals, including koalas, kangaroos, joeys, wallabies, sea birds and platypuses.
