It has always amazed me how Birdland Functional Art has sprung forth this small outback town. The creator, Louise Sass, is a highly talented, uncompromising, versatile artist whose brain seems to constantly be on overdrive with new ideas and creations. Her shop, situated below the rocks of Mirima National Park, is highly professional, yet warm and funky and interesting. You walk in via her garden into a lovely gallery, well designed and welcoming. It is most definitely worth a visit to see her highly original pottery, jewellery and glassware. People from elsewhere who have visited are surprised by the quality of her work and the very reasonable prices and it is for this reason that she has numerous commissions for her work. This place must definitely be on your "must see" list if you visit Kununurra - you won't be sorry!

We discovered 'Birdland' tucked away in the industrial area when we were looking for a mechanic and couldn't have been more surprised. A huge range of interesting and fun pieces you would expect to find in Melbourne or Sydney, and everything made in Kununurra. I now have a fabulous teapot and Kimberley mugs that I will use and treasure forever!
Beautiful gallery, outstanding work. Thank you.
Ask about Trev the bull!

Rarely do you come across a gallery with truly outstanding ceramics & jewelley, but "Birdland" is such a place.
Small, but very well presented, this is a gallery not to be missed.
Colours, style & true craftsmanship put these pieces at the top of their class.
Well done.
