Artisan Handaru Baskoro

Javanese Handaru Baskoro comes from a region renowned for batik artistry. He transfers traditional textile batik techniques to wood. 'I specialize in Indonesian batik ornaments, but focus more in the classic styles of Yogya and Solo. The color I use is 'sogan,' or brown, a trademark of the Yogya-Solo style.
