We started as a Pottery Studio

Kandura Studio is a ceramic studio in Indonesia that was founded in 2005 by Fauzy, Tisa and Ghia, with Nuri joining the team in 2010. As they say, what started as a pottery studio has now become a platform for the quartet to materialise their designs!

Indeed, the young team has really pushed through the tough local industry and set themselves in the market for affordable and handcrafted ceramics.

We drove to Bandung, Indonesia to meet Fauzy and Nuri and check out their production and office. We were so encouraged to hear that Kandura was expanding to a new factory in Tangerang not far from Jakarta city.

What you will see in their work are fun experimental patterns and ceramic forms.

The cutest product is the Teribi cups which is an interpretation of the espresso cup. They come in various colour and patterns to give your morning espresso a lift.

There’s something about Kandura’s works that calls out to the designer in us at Starchie, and we love how their works seem to mimic a little bit of its founders: quirky, surprising, ethnic yet comforting and casual.

We sat down with Fauzy Prasetya Kamal, the chief designer at Kandura Studio to get to know one of the main potters behind the clay.

Fauzy was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia. A down to earth guy who loves spending time with his daughter and yoga with his wife. Apart from that, Fauzy tells us that he also gives himself to the work at Kandura Studio as the Chief designer / Creative director. 
He aspires to write more, but keeps procrastinating so writing is on his next to do list.
