Story Behind the Art:
From the many islands of Indonesia rich in culture and tradition, these decorative pieces are hand made by the Islanders using sustainable materials. Modern Indonesian painters use a wide variety of styles and themes. These pieces are colored by the juice of the tamarind fruit. Using special clay with sand, it is shaped and dried for up to one month to avoid cracking, smoothed with a mixture of coconut oil and Lombok Clay to produce the shine. The piece is then placed in a kiln, and during the firing process the piece is splashed with the juice to achieve the unique effect. After cooling the weavers attach rattan, called 'ate' to each piece to further decorate the piece. Designs are etched using a knife and eggshell used to further decorate the piece.
