Growing up on the renowned Northern Darling Downs property of ‘Trevanna’, Ross Plant has always had a close kinship with the land, nature and cattle. Already an accomplished cattleman, it is not surprising that Ross has turned his hand to value-adding his product by working with horn and leather. Currently honing his skills on horn and pewter, Ross now creates exquisite, unique pieces of beauty and function using only fine Italian pewter and Australian horn. Ross’ eye for detail has many elite national galleries throughout Australia ordering and selling his horn and pewter creations.
