Imperfection is always synchronized with a negative mindset. People prefer perfection which sometimes becomes a norm. For myself as an art jewellery designer and artisan, I tend to look at things through the eyes of appreciation of imperfection; perfection is a state of boredom and too mainstream. I believe there is beauty, in any imperfection when it is presented artistically and designing it wholeheartedly. More importantly, this approach will lead to green & sustainable lifestyle. That is my personal concept design approach of each creation for my Art Jewelry & Fashion Accessories under my brand terima kasih kemBali, which means Thank You, You’re Welcome, an expression of gratitude. It was conceived in 2016.
I have always been committed in using imperfect, often overlooked yet bountiful objects from nature or waste/scrap materials, which I infused with philosophical thoughts behind each design to create meaningful pieces which can be used as a fashion object as well as an art décor
For my Art Jewelry lines, the fundamental components selected are combination of traditional Indonesian handcrafted materials such as the Kalimantan scarf, Ikat woven fabric, batik fabric, terracotta, brass objects and my recent obsession is bamboo. I try to incorporate as many natural, unique and locally resource elements into my design, thus maintaining a sustainable supply, as well as support our local artisans and their products. I believe that locally based handcrafted objects with contemporary designs are appealing for the International market. Indonesia has abundant resources of exquisite traditional materials handmade by skillful artisans. It is an ancient skill that many now tend to leave as its painstakingly long, using traditional technology and the perseverance to uphold the traditional in this modern age. Through the deconstruction techniques defining my designs, combining natural and handmade objects, I hope to create a unique wearable artsy pieces which honours tradition with a contemporary touch.
The collection lines are categorized based on my creative journey traveling to many cities in Indonesia. However, Bali has given an immense source of creativeness, allowing me to explore and play without no limitations yet understanding the need to fulfill a market that appreciate uniqueness, one of a kind pieces yet with reasonable price point. While, I started my collection with my signature terima kasih kemBali charmed bracelet, for NY_NOW 2019 summer edition I brought a complete collections, which are The Kalimantan collection representing scarf necklace with bold pendants, Tangled Texture, Fur Elise Collection, Ubud Terracotta Line, I love Bali Collection, Uluwatu Bali Collection, Seminyak Bali Collection, Jatiluwih Bali, Kuta Bali , Sumba Island, Poulet et Papillon Collection, Maumere, Bali leather, Knock on Wood and Bamboo Wisdom. The Bamboo Wisdom collection was submitted for competition, in Best New Product Award category, at NY_NOW 2019 summer edition.
Each pieces are handmade created with passion and gratitude towards the life’s exuberant energies added with the ability to express creativity art pieces for the unique, bold & quirky individuals. I hope you would allow my creation be part of your collection too.
