Australian Koala in gum tree by Susanne Bianchi

Hand-painted sculpture on camphor laurel – I rescued a collection of camphor laurel off-cuts from the local Woodcutters Shop bin. Camphor grows wild throughout eastern Australia and Australian-grown camphor laurel has a strikingly appealing colour and grain, often honey-coloured. It is its beautiful, strong, dark grain against a yellow wood that makes it so interesting to me as an artist.
I was determined to find the inner soul from within each of these pieces and after many hours studying their unique grain, the following pieces were the result.
I’ve attached a photo of the timber prior to my painting it to show you how I got my inspiration from the grain.

Sleepy Koala
Weight: 200 grms Width 9cm Height 22cm Depth 2.5cm
Koalas spend most of their time sleeping, almost 20 hours a day; the remaining 4 to 5 hours they spend eating and occasionally mating.
Sleeping this much is unusual for a herbivore and a marsupial animal.

Sleepy Koala is one of four pieces painted on camphor laurel reclaimed timber.
The piece is signed on the back and sealed in a high gloss for protection.
