Porcelain Magnet | Bushman's Clock Kookaburra
Skimming Stones pay homage to another classic Australian icon with this stunning magnet, the Kookaburra! According to an Aboriginal legend, the kookaburra’s famous chorus of laughter every morning is a signal for the sky people to light the great fire that illuminates and warms the earth by day. The laughing kookaburra is well known both as a symbol of Australia’s bird life and as the inspirational “merry, merry king of the bush” from the children’s song.
Skimming Stones was established by Tony and Yen in 2012 with a focus on cross-cultural creativity - traditional Japanese ceramics meet re-interpreted Australian Iconography. The design duo make homewares and accessories for the modern world - dedicated to creating design-led products that are unique, meaningful and with timelessness. Drawing on 400 years of traditional Japanese porcelain, their unique homewares are designed in Melbourne and crafted in Arita, Japan. Arita is known as the home of Imari porcelain, internationally the most famous type of Japanese pottery. The distinctive Japanese Arita porcelain is renowned for its superb quality and the tradition of porcelain making dating back to 1616.

Materials: Arita porcelain with a traditional blue and white cobalt oxide underglaze
