Artisan Vichan grew up in a small village in northeastern Thailand, in an area surrounded by lush rainforest. At a young age, he found an appreciation for the beauty of nature. This has inspired Vichan to create beautiful artworks that celebrate nature while using natural and sustainable materials. Woodcarving has been in his family for generations and he was taught this craft by his father. With the money he earns from his business, Vichan is able to support his family while preserving the culture and heritage of his ancestors.
“The beauty of wood has inspired me to create these pieces. Both large and powerful, the trees of the forest hold these carvings within, my work is only to remove the extra wood. I am happy to share the beauty of my culture with the rest of the world through my creations.” -Vichan
