this is my recent artwork for Jakarta Contemporary Ceramic Bienalle, which held on September 2014. the process are pretty quick, since i only join on a last month. so i guess i was mixing all together.
the journey to find my inner peace and its relationship with a material somewhat called ceramic are a love/hate relationship. its combine sweats, tears, and a little blood to make my way from there to here-mentally. every words would be understatement, but the point is, ceramic change me.
i was in love with anything handmade an personalized since i was little girl. grow up in Jakarta is about instant effort because the city have this fast development and mass feel. i join the ceramic studio because i love anything handmade. like literally full of touch, tactfulness, and somehow i feel i can explore more fields with ceramic, such as craft, design, or even a chemistry.
it have been 8 years that i was familiar with this material. but it only less than a year that i can make a living from it, not only from derau but either from my artwork. i think to be an artist, i can use a very infinite material-depends on the idea.
in this stage, i think the wisest way to say my urge was with ceramic. no matter what fields you in or explore, its was moist at the beginning, because the clay-it contain water-like us. you can do whatever you want to do with it and it will record your move. and that imprinted touch will not always be like the way it is. it can evolve into something we can not recognize after out from the kiln. its like giving our trust into the nature. yes we can calculating it to be precisely like we wanted to. but theres always a suprise in ceramic. anyway, whatever you will be, remember that there always a change to the temporary possibilities. but don't forget our roots, since we will always growing.

celebrities cultures mini series

i like to explore a new possibilities from my works. and this is all drawing i made in 2011. its a little series and its about celebrity cultures. i used to draw a lot of celebrities during my puberty because i think their life as a human being were so different from me. hollywood revolutionize my concept about being my own self-time and space. my father was working at a books and magazines publisher so i get to read a teen magazines. it was such an eye opener growing up knowing what trends are from magazine. lol. anyway, the pattern was really inspired me so much that i later used for my ceramic works in 2013.


i know i've been on M.I.A mode recently, and from the deepest of my heart, i'm really sorry. i end up spending a lot of time in the studio since its been renovated a while a go.
i have a lot story about my ceramic things. one of them that i got parcitipated on jakarta contemporary ceramic bienalle on september. it was a quick process, since i got tangled on this and that and i slightly forgot to make an artwork (its so bad, i know).
by the way, did you know that we are on instagram? yes we are! go follow @deraumade on instagram. i will held a giveaway my ceramic stuffs anytime soon on instagram. so stay tune ;)

Girls plates

I like to draw a face. Esp female face. I find it fun since i like to imagine and somehow relate it with the real person that i met in my life. When i drew this, its so impulsive. But the vibrant result really threw me up in the sky. I love how i relate this final plates to an india ink doodle in my desk last week. Its fun. Its a girl all over the plate!

I love how this pots are turn out to be the coolest pots ever! Inspite i really think the succulents are somehow elevate the cuteness of this series, this pots turn out to be a really nice after i opened the kiln.

The white and purple are my main color in this series because the themes are girls. And a bows-well, whatever you call it. I glaze and hand drawed every each girls head.
Absolutely one of a kind and definetely handmade.

The succulents are handpicked by me. With the help from Agung, off course. Some of this pots will shows up in my mini instalation in Jakarta Ceramic Biennale, 23rd September 2014.

I think i want to publish some sneak peek to my behind the scene process. Its fun. Since i work alone in the process, and iam making my families my priorities, i only can make considerably fewer stuff than usual. Esp when ied mubarak came. You can tell me that i have some difficulties to get back to work with ceramics. The schedules, oooh...its the hardest. I think its because me and Agugn are not nine-to-five person ever.
So here it is, beside custom orders and other things that i explore, in August, i made this!!

goodbye series

it is an old sketches i made. about 2011 or 2012 i guess. i remember, for me at that time, the concept was very personal back then, which i don't execute and continued it with another technique. but today, as i see this, its brings me a relief feelings. i have move on. i have learn a lot. i still often sketching my daily life and feeling. maybe i'll post about it in the future.

sketches for miss berdy series

in 2012, i get a huge opportunities to join a ceramic workshop with a superb holland ceramic artist Mirjam Veldhuis and amazing contemporary artist Mella Jaarsma. we spend days to get preparing the exhibition.
my works were still minding the domestic areas. and plates. and murals. hooray for the mural. its super fun.
this is a photo when my works hang in the exhibition 'Skin Matters', Soemardja Gallery, 2012.

Green series

I have to make confession. I expect another colors would appear to this pieces. I expect teal and a hint of a peacock blue. But turn up army and its (in my opinion) are not good.

Sake cups

They are twin! This is small cup. Handmade entirely by me. I want to have this dessert-y feeling to this cups. Just like ice cream and stuff. This cups are belong in july's collection. The height is 7cm and the diameter is 5-ish.

Rose trinket dish

Maybe this is the best trinket dish i have ever made. It feel so feminine. And technically i think this is an achivement for me because i've been trying to proceed this technique a couple years ago. It is majolica and its turn up so nice. by the way this rose trinket dish are not included in august catalogue, but its still available.
High fired stoneware. One of a kind.

Girl's face plate

When i was a child i love to see my mom doing her make-up. Its like a sacred thing for her. Face gazing at the old mirror and start to doing her routine. I thought it was a new level of doing painting or something because i remember to ask her for some lipstick or blush on and etc. Its really bothers my mom. So one day she bought me my own make-up tools and that day as i can remember was one of the happiest day.
Beside myself, iam doing make-up for my two little sister. Its fun, its messy, and its so so nice to make a totally different character in my little sis' face. My little sister was so young that moment so basically they are doing what i told them to do. Hahaha. Anyway, i feel the same method when i make this plates series. Its like doing some fictional character and its fun.
Did i mention this plates is so fun to use as a dessert plates? Or a trinket dish.
Its one of a kind. Like you. Slab built semi porcelain and high fired food grade glaze.

Fang spoons

I love the idea of making modern ceramic spoons with a binge of primitivism. And i love how the feel were connected; neutral and girly. The fang spoon are named because the tip from this spoon are remembering me for a carnivore fangs. Its so perfect for spices and maybe a juices.
I think i will make another series. I love it because i think i can give any glaze colors and its makes it more irresistable. One of a kind. High fired stonewares.
