Duangkamol from Thailand
"My name is Duangkamol Srisukri, born in Bangkok, Thailand. Most of my works are both Thai and Chinese reproductions like vases, ginger jars, and figurines. My intention is to maintain the ancient art of making Celadon and stoneware so that our future generations can enjoy these pieces. Together with other artists, we have created beautiful hand-crafted pieces with ornate incisions and bas relief.
"I have always loved to draw, which is why I started working at my parents' workshop. As time passed, I learned the full process from my hands-on experience. Mr. Walker, one of my parents' best friends, taught me the recipe for the wood ash glaze.
"My intention is to do my best when making beautiful art pieces for clients to enjoy. This is the most important award for my work. Seeing that clients are pleased with my works and to see repeated customers is my best inspiration. This motivates me to work harder and pay more attention to details in order to have great art pieces for my clients.
"I hope that my products will inspire a lot of people to see the beauty of ceramics. Each piece that I make has many stories to tell. Each piece is individually signed by the artist who has worked on it."
