Story Behind the Art:
Balinese artisan Putu Oka Mahendra inherited his ceramic legacy from his mother, Made Tantri, who pioneered ceramic artistry in 1980. At first, she undertook the entire design and crafting procedure by herself, and developed a reputation for fine design and high quality. In 1990, when Tantri passed away, Oka Mahendra took-over her work, and eventually opened a showroom in her memory. The award winning designer finds inspiration in the luscious flora and fauna of Bali.

  • I just thought it would be a cheap doo-dad....

    I had been looking for a tea set as a gift, and I wanted something nice but not all that expensive, if you know what I mean. I had gone into a speciality tea shop at an up-end mall and saw some tea sets, and while these were very nice, the sets were also very expensive. While looking at "O", I came across this one, and I thought it looked both cute and exotic.... plain but artsy. The price was nice, so I placed the order thinking it would just be a nice, little doo-dad. Little did I realize the quality of the gift. I had not even looked at it when the package arrived but rather handed it over to the person receiving it. The packing was expertly done, no chance of breaking, The person first un wrapped a cup, and the craftsmanship and quality were just outstanding, the colour so spot-on and beautiful and rich, and as each piece was unwrapped, you could see how happy the person was to have received it. And then we both noticed the tag, the National Geographic tag. Wow. This WAS one of the more expensive yea pots we had seen in the up-scale shop.
