Gae sa lak is a traditional Thai sculptural process used in carving for decorative purposes. Thatsanee and Ramphan apply this method to a series of ceramic products, each one with floral and organic shapes hand-carved into the clay before the piece is fired. The piece is then glazed in the traditional celadon method, featuring a lightly crackled antique appearance. This beautifully shaped vase is adorned with a wonderful elephant design that wraps around the piece's bulbous base. Made in Thailand.

  • Watertight

Artisan: Thatsanee and Ramphan

Artisan Thatsanee and Ramphan

Master painter and artist Ramphan tells her story: "We are artists in the Celadon ceramic tradition, one of the three main ceramic styles in Thailand, dating back many hundreds of years. The traditional green tones of the glaze are intended to bring to mind the tonal qualities of jade. The celadon glaze is thick and strong, yet has many intricate weblike cracks in its surface for an antique feel.

"I initially learned how to paint basic patterns such as bamboo and lotus, focusing on that for a period of three years. Then I learned more intricate and artistic Thai patterns that I have been painting up to now. My inspiration comes from Thai culture and traditions, and my personal experiences in day-to-day life.

"Painting on celadon can be quite difficult, for this kind of ceramic has a rough surface; it requires much skill and patience, and it sometimes takes me a month to complete a single piece. I am very proud of my work.

"We work with the sense that we are continuing history, our heritage. The products are beautiful and unique. Celadon is anchored in the Lanna culture. The fine skill needed to create it and that it is useful in these modern times is what makes the work meaningful."
