Skimming Stones honour the humble Gumtree with this stunning porcelain plate. The eucalyptus tree, also known as the gumtree, is a large evergreen that constitute over 75% of the tree population of Australia. They grow fast and straight, and reach tremendous heights, they have existed in Australia for uncountable centuries, withstanding severe fires, dry climate and supplied animals with a reliable home and food source.

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.
