Genus Banksia

Genus Banksia

As promised in Newsletter #80 – February 2019, the hankering to revisit all-things Australian has hit.  I mentioned I had bought the most fabulously illustrated book entitled Firewood Banksia by Philippa Nikulinsky; published by Freemantle Press.  I encourage you to visit Philippa’s website. She shares her thoughts, works, publications; decades of her passions. 

I reached out to Philippa and spoke with Angela Nikulinsky.  Philippa was on holiday but Angela was excited when I proposed using some of Philippa’s artwork from her book.  Drop-in for a visit to Studio N –  and learn about Angela.

Interesting & Unique Australian Woods

Woodcraft is the modern enjoyment of what was historically a necessity to create tools and other essential items to sustain life. Exotic hardwoods are especially prized among wood crafters for their enduring strength and colour contrasts. We have imported a collection of treasured Western Australian lumber and banksias nuts. Western Australian timbers are prized worldwide for their rich, beautiful colours and spectacular grain features. They have been gathered from environmentally sustainable sources including salvaged cuts from road construction clearances or obtained under license from the Western Australian Government regulated forests.
