In an effort to maintain and preserve the art of ceramics, we feel compelled to establish Tanteri Foundation which aims to preserve and develop the art of pottery and ceramics in Bali. The Foundation manages Tanteri museum that collect various ceramics and pottery ever made in Pejaten village as well as various ceramics found in Indonesian archipelago.
