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.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
