Skimming Stones Helmeted Honeyeater Porcelain Plate
The gorgeous Australian collection is designed by Skimming Stones from Melbourne to create a collection of porcelain plates with Japanese ceramic company Kihara. The design intent is to explore, beyond the cliché, a fresh look into Australiana. Measuring 15 cm in diameter and coloured in colbalt blue, the plates can be used for light snacks or great for display piece. Comes in a beautiful packaged box.
The Helmeted Honeyeater is a critically endangered yellow and black bird with a distinctive yellow ‘helmet’ that exists in the wild only as a tiny relict population in the Australian state of Victoria where the remaining 20 breeding pairs are all found. It is Victoria’s only endemic bird, and was adopted as Victoria’s bird emblem. Much work has been done to ensure their survival but they are at the brink of extinction with numbers not improving in recent times.
There are 4 plates in the Australian Bird collection - Laughing Kookaburra, Gang-Gang Cockatoo, Helmeted Honeyeater and Black Swan.
