noviardi prasetya: 3D batik

indonesian batik textiles are made using a wax resist technique. wax is used to seal certain areas to repel dye, so that when the wax is removed, it reveals the pattern as a footprint on the wax. layer by layer this process is repeated until the intricate batik pattern is created.

‘3D batik’ by noviardi prasetya explores the essence of this process and extends it into the 21st century and the three-dimensional realm. wax casts of traditional indonesian objects are placed into a block mould that is then filled with resin. the set resin cast is cut to reveal an array of different sections through the wax forms contained within. finally the wax is scraped out revealing part-voids of the original objects and a new set of batik vases created.

‘3D batik’ was presented at tent london as part of london design week 2010.

  • Interesting, although I’m not sure how I feel about it being called batik. I’m also not sure I completely understand his process. I’d really like to see the creation in action. However, it is rather interesting nonetheless.

  • Is response to BAGUS

    Is it not the essence of Batik; creating a pattern through the printing and then removal of wax. But in this case 3D. And instead of traditional patterns using traditional objects.

    SBAMBI says:
  • This is not like batik at all. Why does he call this 3D batik??? Batik is more technique applied on fabric than just about pattern. Jangan maksa deh!!!!!!
