Kevala Ceramics Bali is a line of designer homewares, with an emphasis on ceramic items, all produced in a factory in Sanur. Whenever you dine at a five-star restaurant in Bali, chances are that the quirkily shaped noodle bowls, plates bearing hand-sketched botanical motifs, or even the scented oil burners in the corner of the dining room, are one-off commissioned designs courtesy of Kevala Bali.
The collection at Kevala Ceramics ranges from tableware, stoneware, spa and bathroom paraphernalia, to exquisite décor items such as mini vases and candle holders, all of which vary in glaze, size, texture and weight. No two items are identical, as inconsistencies resulting from the kiln-firing process of up to 1,200°C are historically considered to be an attractive aspect of the craft.

Kevala Ceramics’ signature designs are usually rendered in natural hues, however it also often collaborates with guest artists, with a special portfolio that includes the texture and etching-rich forms by Singapore-based artist Gilly Beal, colourful “scrafitto” style etches on clay by Sydney-based Dimity Kidston, and quirky mini-ceramic cat totems by Australian designer Fliss Dodd.
Although each of the bowls, plates and other ceramic bits and pieces are seemingly very uniform in shape and size, with every touch you can still tell that they are made individually by hand. Besides adding colour to your kitchen set, this can add a sense of warmth and character to your dining table.
Kevala Ceramics’ factory in Sanur basically deals with manufacture and wholesales. Nevertheless, you can find the varied collections at several of its retail outlets, aptly called Kevala Home, in various locations. Among the main outlets is on Jalan Batubelig in Kerobokan, located just midway between Petitenget and Batubelig Beach.
Smaller items start from around IDR 250,000 (USD 20), while larger showpiece items can cost anything up to IDR 2.7 million (USD 200) and beyond. Guest designer ranges and whole sets will cost you more.
