What’s Kooking?

We stopped to admire this kookaburra sculpture by Susan Flavell recently. It’s in the Subi Centro development in the Perth western suburb of Subiaco. The kookaburra has two connections with this area. The Wembley Ware China factory was located there and produced many iconic porcelain kookaburras (below). Metters stoves were also manufactured in the area, including the Kooka model.
