Putu Oka Mahendra finds inspiration in Bali's wildlife for the design of this endearing teapot, featuring a duck with her duckling as the lid. He crafts the ceramic pot by hand, his expertise evident in the detailed artistry of his work. A rattan handle completes the teapot's beautiful design, and can be removed prior to placing in dishwasher by pulling on the ring to either release or lock it back in.
Putu Oka Mahendra has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1300 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to invest in hiring more artisans from his community to increase production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
