Bali News: Asian Ceramics Through the Ages

(2/14/2009)

With historical examples dating as far back as 9000 BC, Chinese Ceramics are arguably one of civilization's oldest art forms. These ceramics are prized and loved not only for their practical uses, but also for their artistic beauty.

These same reasons have drawn Rudolfo (Rudy) Gusti, a Bali businessman, to gather an outstanding collection of Chinese ceramics over the past three decades. Initially drawn to buying whatever attracted his eye, Rudy would make time to seek out new pieces for his collection as he traveled to different parts of the Indonesian archipelago. Starting from the collection of classically beautiful ginger pots, Rudy’s taste in fine ceramics and his collection have expanded over the years. With time the aficionados grew to become an expert by reading extensively on the subject, attending academic lectures and international ceramic auctions.

"The more you learn, the more you enjoy" Rudy revealed.

His search for ceramics also brought him to visit neighboring countries, including Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Rudy continued: "I have some high-value ceramics from various Chinese Dynasties, some of them are imperial pieces which were made for the Emperor and his court or as presents to a King or other dignitaries."

Today, Rudy's collection has grown to more than 4000 individual piece. Rudy wants to share it with ceramics enthusiasts in Bali. "I love them all so much but it's time to sell redundant pieces." he said.

Wandering through his office at Lotus Enterprises are rows of giant Chinese jars and pots. On the walls are elaborate ceramic plates, coming mostly from China. Similarly, Rudy's seaside house in Sanur is crowded with ceramic pieces ranging from large jars to small powder boxes. With a collection too large to be housed in any single location, all Rudy's hotels, restaurants and offices in Asia are decorated with antiques ceramics. He has even erected a Mini Museum of Asian Ceramics at his Lotus Pond Restaurant in Sanur.

In the current exhibition of Chinese ceramics at the Jenggala Gallery, Rudy Gusti presents only a small part of his entire collection. The items on exhibit range from early Tang dynasty to items produced under the reign of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Many pieces are originals dating from the 14th to the 19th century, including some high quality reproductions produced as recently as the 1940s.

Predominated with Chinese blue and white wares, several Annamese (Vietnam) pieces, medicine bottles and boxes from Thailand (14th and 15th century, and a few prized pieces from Japan.
