Thanks for your interest in my Batik Pottery. 🙂
At the moment I’m doing a small batch release. All of the cups are handmade and unique. There might be some differences in dimension and color.
You can find the pieces that I am selling listed at the end of the article. Before I show you the product, let me share a few stories behind the Batik Pottery.
Why pottery, Firsta?
Okayyy… It’s partly because of the pandemic. I’ve been wanting to do pottery lessons for a while and with the pandemic I’m (aren’t we all?) being forced to stay in one place—I can’t travel as much as before. So I’m making the most of this opportunity. I’m doing a lot of pottery workshops.
The first class was a birthday present from my husband (I asked for it haha!).
Then I got a bit into it. I started to visit the pottery studio every week. I went to Klaten to see Puteran Miring, and I had discussions about pottery. I guess I like pottery. I love the experiments, I love and hate the imperfection—mainly because it is caused by things that we can’t control.
On top of that, I’ve been wanting to develop Discover Your Indonesia store, selling curated Indonesian souvenirs. This Batik pottery is the start.
And why Batik?
I’ve been working with a community-based studio in Tembi running Batik course, cycling tour, and cooking class. All of the activities stopped due to the pandemic. I love Batik and would like to help (even it is a small help, and hopefully it grows!) them grow their business. I also like to have creative discussions with people who run the place.
Did you make all the cups by yourself?
No. Consider me as the architect. I decided the dimension, the designs, the colors, and I’m tightly involved in the production process. The boys at the ceramic studio and all the girls (and 3 cute boys) at the batik studio are the people who make the pottery and add batik designs. The cups are made with love from all of us in Yogyakarta.
Can I preorder/customise?
Yes! Thousands times yes. My team and I actually like it more to work on pieces that will for sure go to someone’s hands.
