In 2013 I was taught the art of Batik in Yogyakarta at Batik Nakula Sadewa of Bpk. Bambang Sumardyono. In addition to batik paintings, I also use the batik technique on the so-called ‘Man Bangi’, wooden maroon benches, some of which include woodcarvings and some that don’t. I also use the ‘canting’ and ‘malam’ (wax) on my ceramics to create patterns on my work. This results in special accents during raku firing.
