This study discovered that Indonesian master craftsmen's conceptual process is highly influenced by Typical mindsets of Object-attribute that underlines Rationale and Mastery that thus stimulate a pragmatic perspective. We observed that traditional design education is difficult to be conceived by individuals with conservative viewpoint. Consequently, we make a model of the design training that fits with their conventional mindsets. This model utilizes traditional craftsman's previous knowledge at extraordinary levels in order for them further experiencing dialectical-beliefs of new thoughts.To further develop this model we investigate their knowledge acquisition of mindset during conceptual process.

It is our great honor that our collaborative research has been prized as the best paper of KICSS Best Paper Award. I am very proud that I got a degree at School of Knowledge Science. I would express my deepest appreciation to Nagai sensei and JAIST. We will develop our study of design creativity in future.
