Two of the most beautiful and functional things I own!! Anita was very sweet. I have been eyeing her pieces for years and noticed that she had the kookaburra jewelry holder listed on eBay, but not Etsy. She moved the listing over to Etsy for me and adjusted shipping for the combined items. I love, love, love these pieces. Very well made, the details are incredible; that jewelry holder is simply genius! I keep it on my bedside table for my activity tracker at night. I use the kookaburra on a leaf to hold my tea bags or jewelry in the kitchen. I know I will treasure this art for years and years to come. Simply unsurpassed in uniqueness.

Beautifully wrapped, arrived safely and promptly. The amount of the work that goes into these small items is amazing. I was looking for unique Australian gift to take to the UK, and these are perfect, they will be received with pleasure I'm sure. Thank you.

About

Self taught artist who loves playing with clay

Everything I've learnt is from books and the internet. I have always been interested in arts and crafts and growing up my room was always declared a disaster area, filled with art and craft projects, both finished and half finished, I particularly love drawing, painting and sculpting and used to sculpt in air dry clay as a child. I discovered porcelain clay in 2005 and have been creating porcelain creatures since then. I'm not sure how long I will continue to create my ceramic pieces (this is the longest I've spent with one medium) but it's been quite an enjoyable pastime. I love to create art that makes people smile, and I'm always happy to hear ideas for new pieces

    I create one of a kind porcelain creatures, my creatures are whimsical rather than anatomical and I'm often told they are very tactile. Nothing pleases me more than to see people look at my art and smile :)
