Australian style, in all its urban, suburban and country variations, has been formed through the interplay of historic and international influences, its own complex multiculture and the strange individuality of an island-continent possessing unique birds, animals and plant life. OETA has sought to capture this diversity and complexity through the many tiles on offer in its "Australiana Series".
In 1995 OETA formed an alliance with the Tobwabba Art Group of the Worimi Aboriginal community, to produce a range of decorative wall tiles. The range became an immediate success, winning the Premier Award at the national Tilex Exposition in 1995. These tiles have been used in commercial as well as domestic situations as decorative border tiles, and as individual pieces of art, but the uses to which these tiles can be put are myriad.
