Beautifully Affordable Home Decor: Galeri Pot Jakarta

[updated from my second visit there on 2/2/17]

I recently discovered another treasure trove in Jakarta — Galeri Pots on Kemang Timur. It is a pottery heaven of delightful things like pots, vases, lamps, and planters. And they come in all shapes, colours and designs (at very reasonable prices).

Since 1996, Galeri Pot has been designing and manufacturing beautiful pots not only for the local market, but also to export them worldwide (I would think their pots are cheaper here in Indonesia though).

Pots and vases of every colour to match your house decor.

Their latest collection.

Level One.

Their showroom spans two storeys – the first level houses mainly pots, vases and planters; the lamps and lamp shades can be found on the second level. There is even an outside space with huge pots and planters for outdoor use.

Ceramic jars for your kitchen/dining area.

Gold, Bronze, and Prada Silver pieces.

In addition to the pots and vases, Galeri Pot also handcrafts classic lanterns and cut-outs that add a touch of charm to any home setting.

Such a pretty blue-white print! This will serve as a great dining centerpiece.

Larger vases can double up as umbrella stands in the home.

I’ve been to Galeri Pots thrice so far. The first time with Jia, I mainly window-shopped and browsed their collection. The second and third time with my parents, we came back with 3-4 boxes each time. Always have a soft spot for home decor (much to Agent D’s dismay)!

Chrimson Blue Collection.

My parents bought a matching vase and lamp for the living room from the Chrimson Blue Collection. Love the deep green tinge (I actually think it’s more green than blue hmm).

While I couldn’t resist getting a vase bottle from their Chrimson Blue Collection and a jade ceramic jar from the new collection.

On my most recent visit, I bought some white decor pieces.

All their pots are 100% handmade and hand-finished. The process is a complex one and involves the following steps (taken from their website):

  • Hand-throwing of clay into desired shape.
  • Left to dry for a few days.
  • Etched artistically by hand.
  • Left to sun-dry for a few more days.
  • Pots are fired in an oven for 24 hours.
  • The finishing or colouring process gives the pots their final look.

Lovin’ my new display pieces.

Bought some artificial lilies for the new vase.

P.S. You can custom make lamps with any of the pots in the store. Just inform the staff there and they’ll turn your desired pot into a lamp complete with a lamp shade. 🙂

P.P.S. Browse their extensive collection on their webpage and order direct through there: http://www.jcs-pottery.com/. Each order takes about 6-8 weeks to complete.

I ordered a milky white leaf-cut tall vase. Can’t wait to see it in two months time!

Alternatively, drop by their showroom to take a look! It is just down the road from Cahayalampu, which I mentioned in a previous post.

Enjoy shopping! xxx

Custom Made Lamps in Jakarta: Cahayalampu

Following up on my post on Custom-made Furniture in Jakarta, I wanted to show y’all my most recent purchase from the Women’s International Club (WIC) Bazaar *drum roll* – A TEACUP + TEAPOT LAMP.

Hand made lamp from Cahayalampu (IDR 700k).

Isn’t she such a beauty? The lamp base is made up of a reused teacup and two vintage teapots stacked one on top of the other. I fell in love with it at first sight. ❤

I’m a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle, here is my spout.

Being a tea addict myself, I thought it was apt to style my home with a teacup + teapot lamp. What do you think?

I am a very special pot, it is true. Here is an example of what I can do. I can turn my handle into a spout, tip me over and pour me out.

Cahayalampu has ready stock lamps that can be altered to fit your house decor – be it changing its colour, height, or lampshade. Or you can get them to custom make lamps. Just bring a photo of your dream lamp to their shop and they can make it into a reality!

REUSE. The people at Cahayalampu have an amazing ability to turn just about anything into a lamp — figurines, vases, ceramics, candlesticks, teapots, just to name a few. #VeryImpressive

Lamps aside, they also make exquisite sofas, chairs, and curtains. If you are interested, just drop by their store and BROWSE. 😉
