New Yalanji Bowls have landed!
Made in Australia, individual and brimming over with authenticity and meaning, these small handcrafted ceramic bowls make functional yet uniquely decorative Australian gifts. Delicately handcrafted by Yalanji Arts, a group of Aboriginal artists from Mossman Gorge in Queensland, these bowls are sure to be remembered for their thoughtfulness. Each bowl comes packaged in a kraft gift box with the Yalanji story.
Corban & Blair have been working with the Yalanji team for many years. The designs and colours change constantly and we are always delighted with the next collection. These bowls are made by hand by individual artists in the Arts Centre, so for large order quantities we need a 2-3 months lead time. View the collection here.
Showcasing Sheryl Burchill a Yalanji ceramic artists. Bama Name: Walbul Walbul (meaning butterfly). Mossman. Language Group: Kuku Yalanji/Kuku Nyungkal
Sheryl comes from an artistic family. The stories from her mother and grandparents, the landscape and the environment are inspiration for her artwork. Connection with culture and the sense of knowing where she comes from keeps her grounded as a person. It also gives her the strength and courage to take on life’s challenges. Being able to share all she has learnt about her culture through art has been a blessing. Sheryl always aims to use her understanding of Yalanji culture, traditional stories and life style to inform her art work and express her ideas in a contemporary style.
Sheryl has exhibited in the following shows: Cairns Indigenous Art Fair – 2012 (Cairns Cruise Terminal), Manjal Dimbi – Rainforest Inspired Works by Yalanji Artists of Mossman Gorge – 2013 (Canopy Art Space – Cairns), Works on Paper by Yalanji Artists of Mossman Gorge – 2013 (Mossman Gorge Centre), IACA ‘Kinship’ exhibition – 2013 (TANKS and James Cook University), ‘Vessel’ – ceramics & mono prints by Yalanji Artists of Moss.
