Pottery Workshop

Last month, one of music video shoot that I worked on took place in a pottery workshop. The pottery artist was Mariko. She moved from Japan to Bali over 10 years ago after countless times of back and forth. She's been a pottery artist for more than 20 years now. I found it interesting to watch someone making something with passion and patience. 

Lately life's been pretty busy. With 3 ongoing projects, I can say I get myself coffeed out every day. On Sunday I will have a short film shoot. While preparing for that shoot, I'm also working on the preparation of other film promo and premiere. And soon, another documentary film pre-production will start too. I feel really blessed. The other day I met a friend over lunch. He was complaining a lot about his job. I told him that he has to be grateful that he still has a reason every morning to wake up and get dressed for work, despite all the less convenient thing that he feels.

  1. Wow! This pottery work shop is so beautiful! I wish I could visit this place and watch the artist work! How fun that you got to shoot a music video there! I wish I knew how to make pottery, my sister does and the things she's made are lovely. I hope you get some rest somewhere in between your busy schedule! I am all coffeed out this week myself, I just want a nap! ;)
