Studio Visit : Ayu Larasati, Ceramicist

Sunday, January 18, 2015



Beside travel and review on things that I like, I've been preparing a new series for my blog as a way to improve myself better through photography and writing. I don't have any resolutions for this year, since I'm not a big fan of making one. So beside the usual posts on travel and some of my worth-to-share daily happenings, this year you'll also see posts on my journey visiting makers, designers, illustrators, writer, photographers studio, mostly from Indonesia. And to mark the fist Studio Visit series, we have Ayu Larasati, a Ceramicist who has been very passionate making ceramics by her own hands at her lovely home studio.

Long story short, I met Ayu through Instagram for about 4 months ago and we've been building friendship since then, we even went on a year end vacation to a beach house together (later on the blog, I promise!).

During her years working abroad in Toronto, Ayu fell in love with the sound of pottery wheel and decided to bought one and having the best time producing mugs, bowls, and platters under her basement. Earlier in 2014, she came back to the homeland and now the mother of one is taking her passion seriously working as a ceramicist with the brand under her own name, Ayu Larasati.​

Ayu is not only a friend, but someone who I look up to in terms of creating balance between her works and personal life, as well as honoring her life's calling. She often mention that she want to keep running the business in a small scale so she can handle all the productions of her pottery pieces. Other than making ceramics, Ayu also has been involved teaching basic pottery class at Indoestri Makerspace usually on weekends. Thank you Ayu for letting me shoot your lovely home studio!
