Orait! please bear with me for a short while. This starting entry will be in Bahasa Malaysia, and is also filled with a number of photos. But all pixs are smaller in sizes so that you would have an
annoying awesome ;) experience staying on RestNrilekS.
Owh Yak yak yuk! Ini adalah gambar produk Kraftangan Malaysia kategori kraf anyaman rotan, hasil pelajar Jurusan Seni Kraf Rotan, Institut Kraf Negara. LoL. Rizal, ada-ada je ko ni membuat entri yang semacam hampeh sususan ayatnya gara-gara seo. Okay selesai sudah! LoL
On 14th November, Institut Kraf Negara (National Craft Institute) held its 8th Convocation Day. Eeehaa it is finally over. Now, i can really restnrileks. Personally, i just hate Convo day since i would be so stressful prior to that big day, not that i am complaining :). The stressful part would be working with
idiots uninformed people. LoL. Two exhibition rooms overseeing the 6 major crafts on display, One holding room for VIP, A Mini Banquet Hall for VIPs, and The Convo Hall itself which includes the designing the stage and its overall ambience fall are usually given to me. My numerous and faithful attempts trying not to take that job have been futile. Aha. Anyway, pix above is last year stage design in preparation.
Great thing about IKN Convo Day is we manage to clear our store by selling Rattan Products Cheap. How cheap is cheap? Let say : A common rattan basket will sell for rm20-30 per piece out there, but for RM100, you might get a three piece set of furniture - yeah 2 chairs and maybe a small side table. LoL. Now, if you are nice to me, maybe i can set the price even lower ; ). Aha. Making money isnt our objective since the main goal is to clear our store room so we would have space for incoming rattan projects. Anyway, i am not going to turn this into a lengthy post (which i think i have a knack of turning one into it - Aha!).
Just enjoy the pixs of our rattan craft projects. I hope you enjoy looking at them as i have enjoyed guiding my students and as they themselves have enjoyed making them (
Experimental Rattan Fruit baskets inspired from flowers using the stake and strand method ; the unconventional method of constructing.
Coffee table weaved using rattan (black) and processed banana skin (from trunk). Inspired from
Nemo Whaaaallleee eeeee oooooo form. White : A whale rattan table lamp.
Remember i have mentioned i like doodling during office meeting. Well, here are three of them which i did during my three previous meetings. LoL. I guess my director has accustomed seeing me doodling during office meeting. A ha! Cool!
A dining table for two in the making. Quick Resketch
Toying with some ideas
