Batik --> On Wood

Textiil Wood Batik
Indonesian Wood Batik Tray

Many people are quite familar with fabric batik, but the first time we saw a display of wood batik it really made an impression. Masks are one of the more popular items  created with wood batik in Indonesia, but we found wonderful trays, bowls and a great selection of wooden pencils when a group of Indonesian artisans came to Kuala Lumpur on a trade mission.  The general process seems to be quite similar to batik on fabric, but the detailed explanation here, suggests additional complexity in working with wood. On my next visit to Yogjakarta I plan to explore more about the process of batik on wood.
