Bali Ceramic Artist

Ketut Sarta

I Ketut Sarta was born in Mengwi on January 30th, 1966. He has graduated from a senior school of art in Denpasar, Badung regency, in 1983. After graduated, he tried to work as a woodcarver in his village. As a woodcarver, his ideas and creativity are strongly influenced and inspired by nature and the culture of Bali. His expertise in sculpture turned out to be the basis for the development of the art of glazed ceramic in Pejaten village Kediri Tabanan. He joined as a daily laborer in the Development of Glazed Ceramic Project in Pejaten. Later, his prominent talent in ceramic made his love for ceramic even greater than able to make him devote more than 20 years of his life to the manufacture of glazed ceramic. With the guidance and direction of Mrs. Hester Tjebbes, a ceramic artist from France, he finally became a ceramic artist. His work has a distinctive character and style where he can beautifully combine European and Balinese techniques. Some of his works are the Bali’s patera carved jars.
