Australian Bustard birds feature in this Bush Onion Dreaming story, traditionally jealous of the larger, stronger Emu.  The altercations between these birds are often recounted in Australian Aboriginal lore. 

This sequence of four tiles is made up of two end tile designs and one middle tile design that can be used as many times as desired. It creates a lovely dynamic symmetrical effect at large scale, we encourage you to use it as a focal point, border or in one of our furniture designs!.

My Country: feeding off the land

My Country,  Bush Onion 1 ceramic tile

My Country, Bush Onion 1 ceramic tile

Bush onion, or janmarda, can be found in the river banks and are dug up using digging sticks. The Aboriginal people wait for the leaves to dry out before eating it. So long as the bulb is white inside, it will be eaten raw or cooked. 

Through her painting, the tile artist Sarah Napurrula White is telling a Bush Onion Dreaming, or Janmarda Jukurrpa. One of the main sites for this story is Purrupurru,  in the remote red centre of Australia, where you can see an old Jungarrayi man in the form of a large stone figure.

Sarah also likes to paint Bush Onion Dreamings because she likes the designs and patterns. When she’s not painting, Sarah works for the aged and children, and on weekends she loves to go hunting with the old people. 

The majority of our artists are women who play an active role in their communities, not only practically but in building communal ties through the visual language of Dreamtime painting.

With their geometric harmony, these ceramic tiles lend themselves to versatile use, from en masse styling as a splash back, to design feature in our bespoke furniture range.

My Country: sacred sites

My Country,  Emu Dreaming ceramic wall tile

My Country, Emu Dreaming ceramic wall tile

Emu Dreaming denotes a sacred waterhole where initiation ceremonies are performed. The jealousy between Emus and the Australian Bustard are a theme of Dreamtime, and they would be found fighting over bush raisins around the site...

The artist, Sarah Napurrarula White, lives and paints several hours away from the main art centre.  Every few weeks art centre workers drive three hours to the remote settlement on her traditional homelands that she shares with her young family.

Her paintings were used for several tile designs due to their simple, beautiful graphic nature – giving them an aesthetic versatility when used in space: whether modern, rustic or eclectic!
