This hand crafted bamboo placement is a decorative tableware. The extraordinary batik pattern drawn on the pieces definitely makes it outstanding and different.
The batik is drawn directly on the wood using the “canting” method. The batik artist draws on the bamboo using the wax that flows from the canting’s tiny, downward-curving spouts.
This process has to be fast and accurate because the wax will cool down fast and cannot be corrected.
