Living near The Great Western Tiers where the Mole Creek meanders, Ceramicist Yoona Welling of Yoona's Designs wanted to represent a different view of Tasmanian's animals and began producing her much-loved slip cast range of ceramic Tasmanian and Australian native fauna in 1991.

Donations from sales are made to native animal conservation programs, principally the 'Save the Devil' fund.

"Devils were on the brink of extinction but are now in conservation reserves and work continues to find a cure for the disease that first appeared in the mid-1990s and decimated the population. Disease-free reserves are managed, and numbers have increased." Yoona Welling
