About this product

The Batjbarra (scoop) range is a collection of illuminated and suspended weavings created by the women of Bula'Bula Arts in Ramingining, North East Arnhem Land.

The batjbarra is traditionally used to gather water chestnuts and acts as a sieve to retain them while allowing mud and water to trickle back into the billabong.

The range was launched in 2019 as part of the Ngalya collection, an exhibition of collaborative lighting ranges between Koskela and six First Nations art centres. Koskela purchases all completed social impact lights to eliminate risk for the artists and contributes to the ongoing viability of the art centre/artist partner. The bespoke frame, designed in consultation with Bula'Bula Arts, can only be woven upon by artists from the art centre.
