Story behind the art: 

I continue working at home, crafting vases, dishes or bowls on the wheel or with the slab technique. I use leaves and flowers to create the motifs.I was born in Chiang Mai in 1976. When I was in junior high, schools like the one I attended focused on practicing an art or craft along with our academic subjects, so I chose the ceramics class because it looked like fun. We learned to use a potter's wheel to create plates, bowls, vases or other containers in circular shapes.Today, I work in ceramics at home.I start by taking the clay from the rice fields and drying it in the sun. I then grind it to a powder, and strain out any sediment or weeds. The resulting powder is a very fine clay. To use it, I soak it in water.hoping it turns as we expected.I fell in love with ceramics so I studied for a vocational certificate in the art department. During my first year of college, I told my teacher that I wanted to major in ceramics rather than waiting for a suggestion. And for my high vocational certificate, I studied more complicated aspects of the work, such as the selection of soil, or using the kiln at different temperatures.Because my family didn't have enough money, I decided not to continue in the university. I began working with Duangkamol, a Novica-featured artisan, in her workshop. My duty was carving and decorating the pattern clearly before we put the ceramics into the kiln. I enjoyed working with her and I learned many things, but I still dreamed about crafting my own designs.After four years there, I bought a small gas-fired kiln, suitable for a family workshop, and began working on my own. I didn't know anything about sales or marketing, but it didn't concern me that much.

This method was not popular because each piece came out a different size, but I find it charming. Many people suggested I use a mold, which could make every piece the same size and is faster. However, I insist on using the slab method because I want to touch every piece of my work. I felt I could pass my feelings onto my designs my happiness in each one of them. Although they are functional containers, they can be pieces of art.I continue working at home, crafting vases, dishes or bowls on the wheel or with the slab technique. I use leaves and flowers to create the motifs, and I sometimes use a mold if the shopper requests it.Government programs in support of Thai artisans have sponsored my ceramics in a number of trade fairs, and this has helped me become known
