Tatu Jewellery

Every spring and summer Ninuku women forage and clean tatu (gumnuts), quandong, and initinti tree seeds from the bush, which are painted or burned to create wearable art such as necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.  The jewellery is made by hand by artists from Kalka, Pipalyatjara, and Irrunytju communities in the arid foothills of the Tompkinson Ranges. Each piece has a unique walka (design), no two are ever the same.

Canvas Tjuta

Over the course of the last fifteen years, Pitjantjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra artists working at Ninuku Studio have exhibited painting across the world, becoming known for their powerful colour palettes as well as a broad diversity of styles and mediums in which they tell traditional stories of country and everyday life in community.

While the origins of their techniques stem from Milpatjunanyi (sand drawing) and the traditions of Western Desert dot painting, Ninuku artists have grown over time to develop original loose brush techniques as well as to incorporate tjanpi (grass), punu (wood), and kalawatjanga (glass) into two and three dimensional bodies of work.
