My First Visit To Jenggala Keramik In Bali

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, April 9, 2010 | Published in


After our satisfying lunch at Ketupat Restaurant in Legian Street, my friend brought me to Jenggala Keramik located at Jimbaran.


Keramik is an Indonesian word for ceramic. Yes, this shop sells high quality hand-crafted ceramic and glassware! So if you want to shop here, don't forget to bring along your credit card or cards!!


The interior of the shop looks really nice and classy, not to mention expensive!


Although I brought along my credit card, I did not buy anything here!


Not that they were not nice, I just simply could not afford it!


OK, I guess I could buy some home, but I rather spend my money on food and other stuffs! Haha!


But if you are like my friend, who love all these hand-crafted ceramics, be warned! You will definitely end up buying something here!

He bought these. Do you know what they are for?


They came in four different colours, the other two being black and red. He was tempted to buy all four. Haha!


Look at these bowls and plates! Aren't they beautiful?


How about these candle burners?


They also sell beautifully made candles of all shapes and styles!



Ooh! These are cute!!


I wonder what these are for! Are they cigarette ashtrays?


Want to know what were inside these tall containers?


Have a look! Haha!


Nice art on the plate! I like! : )


And guess what? All the products you buy will be packed inside ceramic bags for you to carry home!


Haha! Of course I am kidding! The above are actually small little ceramic "bags" that fit into your palm and they are for sale at the payment counter.

And look! Jenggala is on Facebook!


For more information, you can visit the Jenggala website.


I think I regretted not buying anything there! But never mind, there is always another trip to Bali! It's not that far! Haha!

    awww. im green in envy. i wanna go there.

    April 9, 2010 at 9:10 AM
  23. [SK] said...

    hmmm, i don't like to buy a lot of souvenirs when i go trips.. unless i really have to and i really like that piece of thing..

    April 9, 2010 at 10:54 AM
  24. [SK] said...

    but just wonder whey ever would you go to that ceramic shop?? you friend is a fan of ceramics??

    April 9, 2010 at 10:55 AM
  25. [SK] said...

    yeah, having seen the design of the shop, guess it's only for tourist - and yes, only from tourist that they can mark up the price and earn a good fortune from things they sell..

    April 9, 2010 at 10:55 AM
  26. [SK] said...

    i don't mind go in a have a quick browse, but certainly i will not buy anything..

    April 9, 2010 at 10:56 AM
  27. [SK] said...

    i mean, you need to think about how practical the things are albeit they might look very nice and artistic.. and not to mention, the more headache problem, how to bring back home??

    April 9, 2010 at 10:57 AM
  28. [SK] said...

    i like to travel light, so big piece of souvenirs are never in my list.. that's why, normally jsut get some keychains for colleagues.. hahahaha!!

    April 9, 2010 at 10:58 AM
  29. xin said...

    hmmm the frogs...are they for incense? your posts will come in handy for my bali trip in oct :D

    I collect scented candles and I think the candles in your pictures are good collectibles. The dishes look similar to the ones sold at a local Asian housewares in my city. They sell specialized dishwares from Japan, and other Asian countries.

    April 9, 2010 at 2:59 PM
  33. Kelvin said...

    My hands always shake when i hold ceramic items. Very scare of the touch and afraid tat it might drop.

  35. HappySurfer said...

    Very classy display. No wonder classy prices too. Yes, Bali does have lots of artsy stuff. An ex-colleague brought back a very nice multi-colored glass table top.

    Foong, you've got to check out this venture of making thousands doing nothing at all, er.. almost nothing..

  36. foongpc said...

    caroline ng, haha, I was so busy this week didn't have time to update my blog until now.

    To buy stuffs from Jenggala you need to be a rupiah trillionaire!! Millionaire cannot afford also! LOL!

    Yes, I like the two frogs holding the bowl too! : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:29 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    reanaclaire, you must make a trip to Bali! : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:30 PM
  38. foongpc said...

    annant, Bali is not that expensive, so go!! : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:30 PM
  39. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, haha, yes if you buy heavy stuffs, you will need to pay for courier services : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:31 PM
  40. foongpc said...

    TZ, LOL!

    April 9, 2010 at 4:31 PM
  41. foongpc said...

    lawstude, I am more envy of you and your travels OK? : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:32 PM
  42. foongpc said...

    SK, I also don't buy a lot of things during travels, but for this Bali trip, many things caught my fancy! Haha!

    Yes, my friend is a fan of ceramics and Balinese sculpture and art, so he made me go to Jenggala! Haha.

    Well, it may not be practical but for my friend, he collects these stuffs and he has a lot of them displayed in his house!

    You so cheapskate - only get key chains souvenirs? Next time you go travel, better get a nice souvenir for me, and I don't accept key chains! : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:36 PM
  43. foongpc said...

    xin, the frogs container - it can be used to put your mosquito coil! Going to Bali in October? That's nice! I wish I can go again soon : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:39 PM
  44. foongpc said...

    rose belle, so you must have a huge collection of scented candles by now? : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:40 PM
  45. foongpc said...

    kenwooi, haha! But I didn't see such warning notice being displayed there! So I think even if you break them, they are not considered sold! Hahaha!

    April 9, 2010 at 4:41 PM
  46. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, they are pretty expensive probably in the region of USD30 and above? Buy some back for you? Haha! I am only a rupiah millionaire not a ringgit millionaire ; )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:43 PM
  47. foongpc said...

    kelvin, haha then better not hold anything made from ceramic : )

    April 9, 2010 at 4:44 PM
  48. foongpc said...

    manglish, haha but no money to buy!

    April 9, 2010 at 4:47 PM
  49. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, multi coloured glass table top? Sounds good! Bali is a paradise for artsy stuffs.

    Will check out your new venture : )

    Don't go to Noritake Garden if you go to Japan. All the Noritake that'll make us women eyes shine. LOL

    Those green ceramic dinner ware are beautiful. I like looking at home decor, dining set kind of stuff. But I am not big on purchasing them.

    April 9, 2010 at 9:36 PM
  58. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, oh your aunt likes to collect ceramics? Yeah, if you go Bali, must buy for her : )

    I also don't know why they love frogs! There are so many animals but they chose frogs! Haha!

    Yeah, Facebook is important tool for business nowadays. Happy blogging to you, blue! : )

    April 10, 2010 at 1:10 AM
  59. foongpc said...

    lina, haha I don't want to pay for the extra weight at the airport! What does Noritake has to offer? : )

    April 10, 2010 at 1:18 AM
  60. foongpc said...

    mei teng, oh you like looking at home decor and dining sets? Then you will definitely love visiting Jenggala! : )

    April 10, 2010 at 1:19 AM
  61. lina said...

    all those dinnerware that'll cost a few thousand RM here. You know those plates that they put in a special section to avoid customers like me who had no money putting my grubby hands on the gold-rimmed plate. :D
    But their pieces are absolutely divine. I can't even afford to buy 1 cup and 1 saucer!

    I will also not buying if I were there. Too expensive and it's not of my interest to collect those things.

  71. இ Baŋäŋaz இ said...

    Would not fancy buying things which are not 'easy' to carry during a tour. Need to be extra careful to handle with tender care and those are heavy stuff. Maybe one or two ash strays as souvenirs OK not the whole set of plates. tQ

    Beautiful ceramics! Good for you that you didn't buy them. Not advisable to bring home breakables.

    it is really hard to carry home as well if you buy.

    April 10, 2010 at 11:10 PM
  76. CH Voon said...

    Handle it with care if break it is consider sold.

    if you bring it home... easy to break as well.

    Hi Foong! Wow, great atmosphere and the ceramics are very eye-catching.

    For me, I do buy things while traveling since I also do that in my line of work. In fact, I've started a Travel Collection feature on my WBE site, too.

    Since you'll be back, I'm sure you'll get something from there!

    Take care!

    i'm really not someone who will get souvenirs.. but maybe only for colleagues, because it's been an unspoken rule that whoever goes for a trip overseas will bring back some souvenirs..
