Evoking an ancient pillar, a smooth ceramic rectangle curves sinuously in and out. Thatsanee and Ramphan craft an elegant vase for the traditional interior. Working in the celadon ceramic technique, they bathe the piece in cool jade green. Its crackled glaze adds visual allure.
About the Artist: Thatsanee and Ramphan; Thailand's 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 shades of the glaze recall the tonal qualities of jade. Celadon glaze is thick and strong, yet it has many intricate web-like cracks in its surface for an antique feel. The products are beautiful and unique. We work with the sense that we are continuing history, our heritage.'
The Thatsanee and Ramphan Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Thatsanee and Ramphan in Thailand. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
