Maya Creations has been cultivating business and artistic relationships in Indonesia since 1999. We are primarily working with selected artists and craftspeople who specialise in high quality decorative work.

For more than 50 years, there has been a synergistic creative partnership between Balinese artists and artisans and "Western" artists.

Visiting European artists were captivated by the endemic arts and skills of the Balinese and the striking natural beauty of the island.

Stone carver From this rich fusion has come a plethora of arts, crafts and architectural products and designs, realised by both Balinese and non-Balinese artists and craftspersons.
Many Balinese have taken the opportunity to develop their inherent artistic skills to take advantage of the growing appreciation of the Balinese essence all over the world.

Carving limestone panels, reliefs, ventilation panels for walls (called losters), stone garden lanterns, water features and a vast variety of statues (modern contemporary, traditional Hindu and Buddhist icons, faux primitive, to name a few) has become one of the most developed - and beautiful - art and craft forms.


Unique custom designs

Maya Creations can commission work for interior decor, landscaping and architechtural use, liasing with professional designers and architects. These may be simple decorative wall pieces through to large panels which can be made up according to a chosen architectural theme used in entrance ways, lobbies, bathrooms and garden walls. Water features, interior and exterior lighting, shop and restaurant fitting, and commercial displays are some of the other applications. Individual designs by property developers and artistically-minded home owners can also be realised.

We are endeavouring to make direct contact with master artists, craftsmen and designers to ensure that they receive as much direct gain as possible, ensuring that the majority of funds is directed into the local arts community. Wherever possible we are engaging Balinese artistans.

We're also importing a range of hand machined marble vanity basins, hand carved decorative door knobs, water features, plinths and hand crafted wooden children's furniture.
