This great piece features the tell tale attributes of arguably the most famous of Australian potters Grace Seccombe. Adorned to the side of a tree stump features a Koala high on gum leaves.
The attention to detail is what we would expect of high quality Australian pottery and this piece is no exception to how Grace styled and glazed her pieces. The colour palette used on this piece is rich and superb.The tree stump features deep mottled browns and oranges with dollops of eucalyptus green for a striking contrast. You can easily see that this palette has definitely been inspired by the spirit of the great australian bushlands. The Koala features deep grey tones as would be found on the real life examples in nature. Coupled with light isolated texturing to the glaze, the result gives the appearance of fur. The face of the koala has been beautifully completed with a black nose and gorgeous eyes. The superb high gloss finish shows this piece to full effect. It captures and radiates light in all the right places to really highlight and accentuate its natural beauty. This radiation of light creates a sense of movement and really lifts this piece into a league of its own. Although unmarked, this piece is unmistakably the work of Grace Seccombe. The overall quality of the piece, the attention to detail in the colour palette and the superb gloss glaze finish are all as would be expected of Grace Seccombe.
