Fodor's Expert Review Banyumulek
Handcrafted pottery is a specialty on Lombok, and you'll find some good examples in the village of Banyumulek, about halfway between Lembar and Mataram. Many houses have studios that you can visit to buy pottery directly from the artists; bargaining is acceptable. For a one-stop shop, try Rismunika Astuti art shop (62/3706–81559), off the main road into Banyumulek; they will even ship purchases abroad. Bring cash as many stores don't take credit cards.
