Jagapati, Angantaka and Sedang Village or better known JAS are the central producer of sculpture craft. Even, these three villages have been designated as a cultural village because most residents of the village work as a sculptor. Netting fish sculpture and rooster-in-cage sculpture are two leading works with a distinctive characteristic produced by the three villages.
Unfortunately, within the past few years, production of the sculpture works was starting to decrease. It happened because the crafters were difficult to get raw materials and market their products. Well, to find the solution of marketing, the Badung Handicraft Council, Government Tourism Office and JAS made an agreement. Its signature was witnessed by the Regent of Badung AA. Gde Agung, Deputy Regent I Ketut Sudikerta, Deputy Chairman of the Badung House and the Head of Badung Regional Working Unit (SKPD) I Made Sunarta,
Monday (Jul 16).
Regent Gde Agung said that development of creative economy oriented in the tourism development as well as micro, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) was an attempt to achieve various strategic objectives of the development in Badung.
On that occasion, the regent also performed the inauguration of the SMEs Craftsman Association (Asperinda) as a breakthrough in cultivating the entrepreneurial spirits among the younger generation. (BTN/015)
