Porcelain Plate | Footy Australian Rules Goalposts

Skimming Stones honour the iconic game of Aussie Rules with this stunning porcelain plate. Woven into the fabric of Australian society, Australian Rules has often been difficult to describe. The quick speed and lack of an offside rule tends to produce a spectacle of complete chaos.The exact origins of Australian Rules are a little unclear with suggestions the game was inspired by the Aboriginal game of Marngrook, which involved kicking a possum skin filled with charcoal.

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.
