ABOUT THE TEACHER(S)
Ayu Larasati was born in Indonesia and moved to Toronto, Canada to study at Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD University). She earned her bachelor degree in Industrial Design graduating with 3 awards for her end-of-year thesis project. Ayu has spent years working for a design and manufacturing company in Toronto designing for small establishments and multinational companies. While she was holding her full-time job as a product designer, ceramics and pottery has captured her biggest passion and she found herself making ceramic objects from her apartment. In late 2014, she established a small home studio in Jakarta, Indonesia producing small batch of functional everyday home wares.
Ayu has also been actively involved in a community of makers. She teaches, shares and promotes the process of creating ceramic objects at Jakarta's first makerspace Indoestri. She envisions that her pottery work will engage its audience in a conversation that explore, raise questions and ignite the curiosity of the process involved in making an everyday ceramic object that unfortunately, rarely regarded as an object of treasury. Through the conversation that happens around handmade small-batch production ceramics and home-based business, she hope to cultivate a different level of appreciation, a deeper meaning when using her pottery and more informed decision when buying an everyday objects.
