For Penujak lombok people, pottery has cultural relation and a noble philosophy value.
According to a senior pottery craftsman, the Lombok handicraft begun from a simple kettle which used for Adat Urip ceremony (a life ceremony), and Adat Pati ceremony (a death ceremony). After a birth of a baby, the kettle is used to keep the placenta. In daily life, kettle is used to cook and to other needs. When death coming, kettle is used to clean up the dead body.
