I’ve been interested in Jenggala ceramics since my first visit to Bali, wherein my husband and I visited their outlet store in Jl. Sunset. Then I found them too expensive because the crazy cheap shopping in Manila was still fresh in my mind. My interest was renewed when I read this post on Chuzai Living – I wanted the Jenggala milk carton creamer in white. I went to this seller and the Kemang branch of Jenggala Ceramics. They didn’t have it in white (they did have it in cow print) and the prices were expensive (It’s cheaper in the Uluwatu factory for sure). So last week in Bali I went to their factory and showroom in Uluwatu. It was worth the trip!
After 2 years of drooling, I finally got a nice tea set and salt and pepper bowls. Unfortunately the sets for their popular white/cream line were not complete so I just mixed and matched. They had the white version of the Milk Carton Creamer… but guess what?! I didn’t buy it! =) I realized that the the opening was so small, it will be hard to clean! I try to balance out practicality and aesthetics so I went for the one with a wide opening below.
- Sugar bowl with wooden cover Rp 70,000 or 7 USD est.
- Wooden spoon Rp 40,000 or 4 USD est.
- Large milk jug Rp 90,000 or 9 USD est.
- Kendy Teapot Rp 330,000 or 33 USD est.*
- Tray or Rectangular plate with lines motif (34.5 x 14.5 x 2 cm) Rp 120,000 or 12 USD est.
For the Salt and Pepper Bowls I bought the wooden tray it came with but I also bought a bigger the lines motif ceramic tray, because I wanted to buy a toothpick holder. Since they were all out except for 2 designs that didn’t fit with the set, I just made sure I had another option. I’ll visit Jenggala Kemang soon to check out the toothpick holders.
- Lines Motif tray small Rp 80,000 or 8 USD est.
- Salt and Pepper pots (they called it small curry dishes) 2pcs x 60,000 = Rp 120,000 or 12 USD est.
- Wood base 50,000 or 5 USD est.
- Salt & pepper spoons 2pcs x 20,000 = Rp 40,000 or 4 USD est.
MORE THAN JUST CERAMICS
AWARD WINNING DESIGN
Interesting to note that the KENDI COLLECTION won the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts in Southeast Asia 2010. It is one of the 19 products awarded. Jenggala Ceramics has the distinction of having 2 out of the 19 winners. The other product is the most beautiful lunch box I’ve ever seen (it’s environmentally friendly too!) the RANTANG.
