Story Behind the Art:
Nantana Sompamitre learnt her craft from her husband. 'We married when I was 23 years old. We realized that with his skill and mine, we could start our own workshop. He taught me and thanks to my crafting background, I learned quickly. Gradually more shops took an interest in our work and we soon began to sell more. We were very happy as we could see we had a bright future ahead of us. This is what I am proudest of in life. I never dared to dream of a day like this.'

despite wait for arrival, very happy with product, appreciate world marketRead More
I had purchased another eggshell mosaic piece - coasters in a box - while in Thailand. I purchased this try to go with the coasters. The workmanship is good and the tray is very unusual in shape. However it is more yellow in color, and does not match the previous piece, which was crafted from more ivory and taupe colored eggshells. I put the tray in another location and it looks very nice.Read More
Cool deocorative plate, I must have misjudged the size because it came much smaller than I anticipated but still is a very pretty accent to our dining room table.Read More
I have absolutely no idea how a piece of such workmanship can be purchased at such a reasonable price. Both the lacquering process and the mosaic were meticulously refined. This was the first eggshell piece I purchased from the artist and I immediately purchased another one for myself. One will not find a product of this quality on a visit to Thailand. I've been there!Read More
