Our grand parents started the art work by vending traditional Javanese kitchen tool known as " Dandang Kenceng " and sold it in Klewer Market (Pasar Klewer) where they oftenly took us, the grandchildren to visit.
The family-run business grew up until 2000 which was the year we began to introduce and lead the original project design implementing copper, brass, aluminium as basic work material to world wide market.

ART DESIGNER PROFILE
Mr. Hwiejanto, Indonesia, 2000
Born in 1960, as the third-generation of a family with strong background in the art and craft tradition of metal forging, I rebuild the family business by giving a touch and developing creative design as an added value without leaving the trademark. Drawing or painting has become my pleasure activity, which brought me to study the fine arts in University of Sebelas Maret Solo in 1982-1986. After graduated from the university, I worked as freelancer in fashion design, advertisement, interior and assistant of art design stage and music.
In the age of high technology and rapid globalization, my role as a painter-originator-creator-designer is to maintain the authenticity of art tradition and social culture which nurture the humanity. Cooperating with the craftsmen I have been educating, whom reliable, creative, purposeful and showing the works as expression of their soul characters, we try to elevate the local arts and crafts with the philosophy.
