From a tradition spanning thousands of years comes a piece of art that is a wonderful mix of beauty and practicality.
Alperstein’s Aboriginal Art collection has come to adorn some adorable
little teapots that feature the artworks of some of Australia’s finest
artists. With their bold colours and amazing designs, these tea pots do
true justice to the works on which they’re based…and you’ll find them
really handy too!
Debbie Brown lives in Nyirrpi, a remote Aboriginal community 400kms
north-west of Alice Springs. In her paintings, Debbie depicts Dreamings
which relate directly to her land, its features, plants and animals,
based on stories passed down to her by her ancestors. Her painting, Yarla Jukurrpa
(Bush Potato Dreaming), depicts
the dreaming of the ‘yarla’ (bush potato) ‘wapirti’ (bush carrot)
ancestors fighting a big battle in the area of Cockatoo Creek.
This gorgeous painting with its colourful, intricate design,
is fantastically featured on this fine bone china tea pot from Alperstein. The
tea pot has a two cup capacity and includes an easy to clean, detachable
stainless steel strainer.
But Alperstein isn't just
about fine art from Australia's
heritage. Together with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation,
they aim to directly benefit each artist and their community, with all
royalties from the Aboriginal Art collection passed along to them. A
powerful and ethical way to bring art to life.
