BNYM Indigenous Designs
BNYM Indigenous Designs produces high quality pottery and ceramics making it a leader in contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art.
Based in the La Trobe Valley region of Victoria, BNYM Indigenous Designs was formed in 2001 by Sam Walker-Wilson, the late Mary Edwards, Shilo Van Sanden, Tweety Solomon and Aunty Jenny Solomon.
The name BNYM (pronounced “Binum”) is an anagram of the tribes of the founding members: B for Bungalung, N for Naragu, Y for Yorta Yorta, and M for Muttie Muttie.
The aim of the company was to showcase the wealth of Gippsland Indigenous culture to national and international audiences. And for over ten years now, it has been doing just that.
BNYM boasts an enviable reputation as the producer of the finest pottery and ceramics in contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art. Each pottery piece includes a unique Indigenous design which incorporates contemporary cultural themes, cultural beliefs, spiritual awareness, and individuality.
