Bali is full of surprises. Last week my friend Swastika helped me find some potters just a few kilometres away from my house! They make very traditional and simple earthenware. The quality of the firing and glaze isn’t quite as high as the guys who made our first prototypes in the nearby island of Lombok. However, the cost will probably be even less for Ubud cafes given the proximity and simplicity of their method. I can’t wait to see their first prototypes next week!
