Koala Keepsake Box, Polymer Clay Animal Sculpture, Australian Wildlife Art

Regular price $ 75.00
Cute and practical, this Koala keepsake box features a one-of-a-kind polymer clay animal sculpture on the top surrounded by Australian wildlife and flowers around the sides of the box. It would make a terrific gift for anyone who loves Koalas, and you could even give it as a gift box with something special inside, too!

Koalas, like kangaroos, are iconic symbols of Australia. After watching a nature program on koalas and their plight - deforestation, fires and human encroachment - I was drawn to their vulnerability and decided to sculpt one for a keepsake box. The lower portion of the box features more Australian natives: Australian Magpie, Galah, budgie or wild parakeet, and the Cooktown Orchid.

I sculpted the koala and tree limb using Super Sculpey polymer clay, no molds were used; the sculpture was painted with acrylics and permanently attached to the box with a strong glue. The box is chipwood which I also painted with acrylics. A polycrylic coating was applied to the sculpture, box lid and the outside of the box for sheen and protection. The bottom inside of the box has a felt lining for cushioning your precious keepsakes. I added a contrasting satin ribbon around the outside of the box’s rim as an added accent.

SIZE: The box weighs 10 oz (.283 kg). It’s about 8 inches (20.32 cm) long by about 6 1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide, and about 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) deep. With the lid on, it’s about 4 1/4 inches (10.8 cm) high to the top of the koala’s ear. The koala sculpture is about 5 1/8 inches (13.02 cm) long by about 3 3/4 inches (9.53 cm) wide.
