Third Drawer Down proudly presents a new collection of stunning textiles featuring artwork from one of Australia's most celebrated modernists, Margaret Preston. Honouring the artist's gift of capturing Australian native flora, this is a spectacular way to bring art into the home. This 4 set of coasters features the artworks: West Australian Banksia, Hibiscus, Waratahs, and Native Hibiscus and Gum Flowers. Gorgeous hues of pink and artist signature make these a wonderful gift for those abroad to showcase Australian art history.
Preston's desire to make uniquely Australian images meant many of her works feature flowers such as the Banksia, Waratah, and Gum Blossom all presented in radical, asymmetrical compositions.
