Kai Kittima from Thailand
is the artisan in the spotlight this week
Thailand's Kai Kittima recalls, 'I've liked art since I was young. I get it from my grandfather -- he really loved art, so it is in my blood. I grew up in a cultural Thai family. I studied in local Thai schools, learned Thai dance, sing old Thai songs and I like to go to the temple. I like crafting jewelry and I am so happy with it. I am so proud of my work. It comes from my heart. I use local materials that are easy to find and create designs in my own style.'
