Who makes this wonderful painting, silver jewelry, wood carving, photo album, handmade cloth or virgin coconut oil? Many visitors to Bali want to know the answer to that question. I always wondered about it too.
I first came to Bali by accident!
But I stayed by design, out of love and curiousity. Over the many years the one fascination that stayed with me was that for the skills and the products of the artists and artisans hidden behind the village walls.
I got to know the temples, the priests, the palaces and the princes, the hotels and the beaches but the artists and artisans, the simple life and timeless wisdom of the villages were what really captivated me.
Behind the arched gateways of the village houses, far away from the gorgeous hotels and the swimming pools and spas are some fascinating people with very special skills.
Learn the secrets of the crafts we love to buy, the ways of the traditional village people and the inspiration of the artist and the art.
