Physical description
A sculptural self portrait of the artist stands on a blue mound which is also the lid of a large covered bowl, all hand moulded. Around her feet cockatoos and kookaburras perch on rainbows and look out between trees that stand in 3-dimensional form around the top of the bowl. Between the trees on a green ledge, sit native animals, all with blissful expressions. The animals are modeled separately and fit into holes. Bright shiny colours are the result of long high-firings of the glazes.
