I was born in Sukawati, Gianyar in 1970. It seemed natural to work with you, as my brother, Made Wirata, is a wood carver and my wife, Made Mulyani, crafts masks, and both of them are featured artisans. In the town where I grew up, most people are wood carvers, and so was my family.

People know me as a humorist, a simple and fully responsibility man. From the time I was in fourth grade, I worked and paid my own tuition. I learned wood sculpture by watching my parents. In those days, children began learning the art at a young age and I was not alone. I had many kinship friends that time.

By the time I was in senior high school, I was always very late in paying my tuition and my parents couldn't help me because they didn't have the economic means to do so. At the same time, I wasn't getting any orders for my wood carvings. I was so ashamed of my impoverished condition. But going through all of this strengthened my spirit and determination about my own future. I knew I wanted to have a happy family and raise my children in better conditions than I had.

Finally, I graduated from high school and married the woman who is now my wife. We have two children — a boy and a girl — who are currently in high school. 'My children should have a better life then mine before.' Whispering this sentence always builds my spirit.

Today, I continue working with wood, but I'm focusing on making vases and classic boxes. I enjoy using the lathe, then carving the objects with manual tools such as chisels, hand-saws and mallets. I give unique finishes to my designs to distinguish them from the others. I believe mahogany is perfect for these designs — it's easy to find and good for the lathe and for carving.

I'm very excited about showing my designs worldwide, and I hope my dreams and goals for my children will come true.

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
