Australian Wombat with Joey by Susanne Bianchi

Hand-painted sculpture on camphor laurel. I was lucky to rescue 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.

Wombats, the koala’s closest living relative, are only found in Australia. They’re marsupials with brown, tan or grey fur. From their stubby tails to their large skulls, they can measure 1.3m long and weigh 36kg. They’re described as ‘stout’, ‘sturdy’ and ‘powerful’. They’re expert diggers with short, muscular legs and sharp clawsWombat mum with joey
Weight: 220 grms Width 16.5cm Height 23.5cm Depth 2cm
Wombat mum with joey 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.
