Tanakita Ceramics is a pottery school based in West Jakarta, Indonesia founded in 2019. We offer a variety of workshops, products, tools, and services. It all started with our passion for the art of ceramics, which was supported by our family’s 30 years of experience in the industry.
Tanakita Ceramics combines commercial and art to produce its artisanal ceramics pieces. We are aware that there’s a lot to learn when it comes to pottery, so we want to provide a safe space for people to learn and develop their skills. In the end, we are all students here.
We believe that pottery sometimes resembles our daily lives; sometimes things don't turn out the way we wanted to. Sometimes all we can do is be patient and enjoy the process even with struggles. With that in mind, we want to encourage people, especially beginners, to be comfortable with mistakes and failures. We study and experiment with our failed ceramic pieces to know the reason in order to improve and succeed on the next try. Every failure ensures us that when it comes to pottery no one is a teacher, but the experience is!
Our Artistic Value
We love to try new things and play with different things without being afraid of making mistakes. For us art means freedom and authenticity, that’s why we delicately hand-made and craft our pieces. Similarly, we support like-minded artists by collaborating in different means.
