--------------------------

Since it has been a while i post anything about rattan crafts, so i am updating RestnRileks with such entry. Frankly, i am a bit hesitated to talk about rattan crafts lately. All thanks to office politic issues that we (IKN) are facing now. Sigh.. nevertheless, i will not let all of you PHD people determine my mood of the day, or tomorrow, or next week, in fact for the rest of my working time in Kraftangan Malaysia. Whoaho!!

Anyway, Launching of Rattan Craft Books was surprisingly pleasant, though it was only a soft launch. Soft launch was released since there were 3 more unfinished books, namely Batik, Seramik and Tenun. Hopefully, when completed, the series will serve as references to people who like to know more about these 7 crafts. These are basic books, emphasizing more on motifs and techniques instead of Craft Philosophies.



A peek into the rattan craft book - Kraf Rotan : Motif dan Teknik. Tee Hee.

I am glad it is over now with the rattan book. I am now working on a second book, which probably will take another 1.5 years time to finish (yer laa kan nak pergi meeting, buat hal admin, ngajar lagi, jaga jurusan, adoiii macam tak cukup nafas, plus nak update blog lagi tuuu).
It will be about ideas on rattan crafts, intended to be used by students as a reference book on idea development. Hopefully, all these ideas will boost the rattan crafts industry in Malaysia. I ve got to admit, creativity in rattan crafts in somewhat stagnant in Malaysia. Like the first book, it will be a collarobative work. 5 ideas (the rest are kept safe n sound.. lol!!) below are done by my ex-students who are now working as Rattan Staff Projects.





Three ideas done by Am (Nor Amin). Who is Am? And check it out here too.



Two ideas done by JJ, whose rattan works are as below :


That s all folks. Enjoy :D

Happy Blogging n Have a great day everyday

As usual, first 3 commentators will get free linky love. :D

Congrats Marvic


Congrats Shemah



and last but not least, congrats Ane. First time right? :D


Till next time.

  22. Thank you Shemah,

    It is always such a great feeling when hearing such comments from outsiders. Unfortunately, our PHDs are more on condemning instead of supporting our works.

    funny thing is, it is under a tag line of Agensi Peneraju Kraf Negara.

    Isnt it ironic? Dont you think?

    Oh ye ke? Terima Kasih. Haha "Happy Events" tu kadang2 kira tirai kepada sakit hati kot.

    Ada, Batik dan Pewarnaan Asli lebih kepada batik sebenarnya. Masih tunggu lagi 3 buah buku siap = Batik, Tenun dan Seramik baru akan keluar secara yang betulnya.

    Buku Rotan tu nanti harap jadi buku idea, khusus kepada mereka yang di dalam Seni Kraf Rotan, tapi orang biasa pun boleh juga.
