I have been to so many wonderful places in the past few days.
I have visited Pasar Rawabening, a market that specialises in precious and semi precious stones, where I had a beautiful necklace of freshwater pearls made.
Went to the Jakarta Contemporary Ceramics Biennale where I was amazed and very proud of the quality of Indonesian ceramics.
I visited the Museum of Art and Ceramics in central Jakarta and visited the old town part of Jakarta.
I visited an art market and delightfully purchased a real, antique bronze batik stamp tool.
I stumbled upon a mobile library bus and went to a shop that sells many wonderful things that I can utilise for ceramics!
Unfortunately technology has failed me and I'm unable to connect my laptop to a decent internet connection. Stay tuned to more in depth writing next week where I will have access to the internet. (this is written via my mobile app-which is very limited)
