BUDGERIGAR

Australian Native Fauna and Flora Range

The budgerigar is a colourful parrot native to Australia. Its plumage is bright yellow and green, with a blue cheek and black scalloping on its wing feathers.

You may know them as 'Budgies', but do you know that the common name is derived form a Gamilaraay Aboriginal language name 'Betcherrygah', which is thought to mean 'good food'? It's unknown whether this means that the bird itself is good eating, or whether their seed-seeking migrations led Gamilaraay to places of rainfall & abundant food.

Our hand printed ceramic coasters celebrate some of Australia's most loved and iconic landscapes, native fauna and flora. Whether it is memories of an amazing holiday down under, or a collection of the special places you visited on childhood holidays, you can mix and match from our range to create the perfect set.

Hand painted layers & mark making, along with additional photographs of textures and surfaces we find within our environment, such as rusted metals, stone walls, paper, sand and fabric, are layered to create our colourful and unique mixed media, digital collages.

Coasters are sold individually and are finished with a cork backing and measure 90mm in diameter. Our coasters have a glossy finish which really helps our bright colour palettes to pop!
