After contemplating for quite some time over my sketches, I was introduced to Wayan Sutabayu through a designer friend when we were working on an Aman project. Pak Bayu and his group of craftsmen have worked on several different types of products, from home shrines to decorative boxes, and, recently, custom-order guitars, all from wood (of the vast species available locally) and the occasional bone or mother-of-pearl decals. Having worked on larger-scale products, a ring project was new and arguably alien for them, but they pulled through beautifully (I shouldn’t be surprised. You should’ve seen the details on the stuff they make.)
A package came in today and prompt me to open this site.
