Surabaya: Secret Sweatshops and Colonial Sophistication

Our world in Bali is fairly sheltered. You could say we live in 'a bubble.' Outside of this tiny island, with about 5 million full-time inhabitants, there are other remarkable islands heaving with people, like the industrious port of Surabaya. So we decided to take a look at her because she came with a thumbs up for being the best place to find highly skilled workers in the copper and silver industries and could help us in our search for reliable manufacturers of our lines of jewellery, should we go into bigger production. Most of all, we like traveling and it was a good way of combining work with pleasure. So we booked a ticket and that is how this...

Artists' Statement - A Word From Us

Every once in a while things fall into place naturally and somehow you can see it happen as if you were watching from the outside. We make our choices we pursue adventures, we go through ups and downs, we meet beautiful people and realise how much the small things matter. Every little shell and broken coral on the beach it’s a reminder of life’s perfection, it’s a reminder that nothing is lost, everything transforms and changes, we are in the circle of life. Another life, another adventure, we might suffer but we become stronger, determined, humble....we have an amazing spirit. That’s the power we feel from the sea and in our lives and we want to share it. We want...
