Warning!! Post may be lagged due to large number of pictures

Yeah, i know, restnrileks has been lagging lately. The truth is, I am having too much fun just restnrileksing nowadays. :) And in doing so, i ve been lagging in posting my ATC as well, dropping Entrecard, updating blog, err.. in fact everything that goes with blogging sphere.. hehe. Speaking of 2nd ATC Swap,-themed independence, I believe everybody has done a great job. Clap!! Clap!! Congrats!! Check out the first ATC (here) and the one that lead to 2nd ATC swap (here). I am still waiting for Megat's works to arrive though... Megat ohhh megat mana ATCs..?? Happily, one from Brunei and two from Indonesia had successfully arrived safe and sound. Without further a due, i am presenting the awesome works of those participated swappers.

First Group -
Antown of antownholic.com (Indonesia)
Fun Fliffy of digital scrapper
Johny of IKN student
Emila of Emila's Illustrated Blog
Bee aka Baizura of Prozak Nation
Second Group -
Pupu of Bubbly Pupu (Brunei)
Jay Jay of IKN Student
Ann of IKN Student
Amy of IKN Student
Third Group -
Kak Ida of Scrapping into beauty
Dee of Ikn Student
Ima of IKN student
Oni of Oni/Flickr (Indonesia) - ohh i cant seem to find his/ her work on Flickr
Me of restnrileks

While the 2nd ATC was in a midst of happening, one of my students too did some small works (ATC size) just for the sake of being happy ( I am sure on his part though) Yippie. Ohh, i almost forget, and here are Mango's. Pictures arent sharp enough (scanner wasnt working so i just took pics using point and shoot camera) Sorri ya manggo..
Last but not least,
Mango of Mangosteenskin ATC works

Produk kraf anyaman bakul rotan - oh! pasti pelik jika restnrileks tidak lagi paparkan kraf rotan.
On other note, here are pics or rattan crafts (Produk kraf anyaman rotan datang lagi!! hehe) I ve been lagging posting pics of rattan crafts too. Below are some preliminary rattan coiling works. These are just basic works (sort of warming up for students.. tee hee) before going to more complicated and tedious works on basketry (coiling technic)

Bakul kraf rotan anyaman teknik lingkaran - oh! yang ini semua lebih sukar dan perlukan kesabaran.
Now, these however are more refined works, basketry of course with black and natural colours. Various baskets or bowls with slight variations on patterns. Coiling method is somewhat tedious and requires a great level of patience. Hence, no wonder the pricey tag that comes with it. Shall i say, the creme de la creme among rattan weaving methods.. hehe. We hope to make new forms by making it asymmetrical balance in the future, which i am sure will be interesting and errr, more tedious. But, that is the best part, the effect of seeing a new design / form is..rewarding Whohoa!! :)

Well, last two groups of pixs are just works of weekly projects to stir creativity among students. Throw some creative ideas without the formality of design process. See how the products will turn out.

Well, till next time. In the meantime, happy ramadhan to all muslim bloggers, Selamat menyambut Hari Raya Aidil Fitri.. Happy blogging and have a great day everyday. I hope i wont be lagging more in updating restnrileks. hehe

  1. wow rizal! all the cards are gorgeous!

    your student memang berbakat. sesetengahnya menampilkan idea yang menarik. ATC Oni pulak benar2 mencuri perhatian. Kelihatannya begitu detail dan very well done. I wish i could have closer and bigger view. saya suka juga ATC yang ada periuk kera tu...I like nepenthes! tapi saya kurang jelas lah ATC group ke-4 tu siapa yang buat? rizal or student rizal?

    cakap pasal lagging, you're not alone. I've tried to update my blog but somehow idea x dapat dikeluarkan. Semuanya tersekat, end up saya duduk merenung monitor macam bengong.

    tentang produk2 rotan tu...memang menarik. I like the basketry yg kaler hitam ngan natural tu. Lampu rotan pulak saya suka yang first two pictures. Ohya, haritu saya jalan2 kat Gaya St. ternampak bakul ribu2 yg guna coiling tech, tringat restnrileks!

  2. yay!!! first person being here..

    the ATCs are superb..semua nya chantek and creative...

    the rotan product...i suka the lampu gantung tue...mesti chantek letak kat rumah..

    the basket is suitable to use as a hamper basket for festive season...

  3. laa...i thought i were the first to comment here..

  6. Thank you manggo,

    ohhh yang group ke empat tu dibuat oleh sorang jer student, dia tak join ATC pun. Dia buat suka2 jer kira macam bagi sokongan. Erti kata biasa, dia pun naik syeikh buat ATC sebab saiz kecik syok nak buat.

  37. Rizal, Keep up the good effort in teaching a traditional craft becoming relevant with the times. Hope I can learn more about these efforts.

  38. Thanks bro,

    Salam Aidilfitri to you too..

    Well, it is hard to change the public perception when it comes to rattan craft (kraf makcik2 orang kg), and i dont blame them either. I take that as a motivating factor. Hopefully, these younger generations will pick up the pace and change the whole scenario. Though i am sure that changes will take place 3-10 years from now. : )
