Pottery has been skilfully crafted by village women in Lombok as means of income since the early 16th century. The technique used by Sasak people is one of the oldest ways of making pottery, and Lombok is one of the few places in the world where the technique has survived. The clay is dug locally, the technique is passed down from mother to daughter at an early age, and the making tools are very simple: hands, wooden or metal paddles, stones, just as ancient pottery was created.
