Along the way to the village of Banyumulek, on the left and right of the road, is the art shop..many shops that display various types of pottery for sale to visitors.

The price of goods sold in this diverse. can reach Rp.35.000 – Rp.500,000 depending on the level of difficulty to make it. What's interesting pottery Banyumulek how to make a still retaining the traditional burning techniques. By using straw and firewood.
The process of making pottery itself through several stages. The main raw material of pottery is clay, and sand as well as a mixture. In addition to the main ingredient, it is also necessary supporting materials for combustion, the hay, dry waste, wood, and coconut fiber. As for the natural coloring, use bran and seed coat water acidic.
