"The success we have been reaping is not just from the celadon we love. It is from the nice, gentle and humble mentality from our ancestors that has been passed on to all of us."
Thatsanee was born in Sankamphang, a land of beautiful and attractive handicrafts, celadon items chief among them. According to Thatsanee, "I worked in a bank for quite a few years but the office work prevented me from admiring the beauty of the handicrafts of my area. The advantage of working in the bank was that I could access fund resources so that I got some small capital to be able to start up a little celadon kiln and workshop along with my partner Kanda. Working with celadon was a dream of mine, and being able to focus my life in this special traditional craft of Thailand brought deep meaning to me. Soonafter I was joined by Ramphan Khumsingkaew, an extraordinary painter, and we all helped to form the base of our small team many years ago."
Master painter and artist Ramphan (pictured here) tells her story: "Dearest Novica clients, 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.
"At present, I lead a happy and peaceful life. I have a loving family with two children. I intend to continue my painting career and would be pleased to teach others, for I hope that my work will never be forgotten."
Thatsanee adds, "Our work ethos is included the King's teachings on 'Economic Sufficiency,' which encourages to be efficient in all aspects of life and to always learn new things and new techniques. Then we add morality into it, for we work with happiness and care for each other. We're all members of a big family, and always help each other. The most important thing is that we understand each other above all, and that we understand the beauty of our art and traditions.
"My main focus in handling all celadon work is focused on the happiness and satisfaction of my team and myself. Good life and good will between all of us is the most important thing for me. As such, I do only good things for myself and every one around me. The result is that the team and I are equally proud of being able to present the beauty of a local art and handicraft from Chiang Mai to the world.
"Finally, a noble motivation also helps. 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.
"We specialize in seven main categories, which include monotone celadon (in green or blue); carved; art design (where the color is painted under the glazing); Lanna Celadon (depicting Lanna life); Benja Celadon (featuring five main colors); lacquer Celadon (applying lacquer ware texture); and Celadon Jewelry, which is elegant and unique celadon jewelry.
"As a local Thai woman, I feel so proud to have the chance to create and present unique celadon items to the world. The success we have been reaping is not just from the celadon we love. It is from the nice, gentle and humble mentality from our ancestors that has been passed on to all of us.
"Working with celadon was a dream of mine, and being able to focus my life in this special traditional craft of Thailand has brought deep meaning to me."

Ramphan's celadon work is far more beautiful than the pictures on the web site can show. I gave my wife a celadon pot for Valentine's Day. She and I are very pleased.
I purchased an elephant pencil holder from this artist for my mother’s birthday. My mother absolutely adores the pencil holder. It has a unique design, a beautiful green color, and it was well packaged. My mother has received numerous compliments on the pencil holder already. Emily Marlow Grosse Ile, Michigan
Dear Ramphan, I was delighted by the whimsical elephant jar I recently purchased from you The potters in your workshop are so wonderfully attentive to detail. It's beautifully crafted and a pleasure to have in my home! I am looking forward to purchasing more items in the future! Thank you! Sincerely, Lori Reves, USA
I received a gorgeous celadon vase by Rampan Khumsingkeaw. I love the work! It's a beautiful shape and the floral incising under the jade green glaze is stunning. What great skill and patience it takes to create such a beautiful object! It is in my bedroom where it will be filled with fresh or silk flowers. Excellent craftsmanship! Thank you!
I am rapidly becoming a great fan and connoisseur of Rampan Khumsingkeaw's Harmonic Nature celadon creations! What exquisite work! I am now the proud owner of the beautiful ""Yellow on Blue"" vase, and a wonderful green-blue and red-orange vase, both handpainted by the artisan ""Chiangmai"" The work in these vases is so painstakingly perfect and just gorgeous beyond anything the photos on the web site can show! I'm so impressed and so eager to communicate my enthusiasm for her work to other discriminating collectors! It's just fantastic! Thank you!!! Lori
I am once again very pleased with recent orders from this artist! The ""Geometric"" jar is exquisitely formed and painted and a welcome addition to my ""Harmonic Nature"" collection. I also think the little, wood fired ""Blue Fruit"" jar is quite lovely, so much so that I ordered another as a holiday gift. The crafting of these pieces is consistently excellent and of the highest standards! Moreover, the prices for these hand crafted items cannot be beat! Best wishes for continued success! Lori
The ""'Power and Tranquility' elephant figurine"" I ordered just came in, and I am very happy! The elephant is beautiful - much nicer than anything I could find locally (and half the price!). It is much bigger than I expected as well. The whole novica experience was excellent and I highly recommend purchasing products though this site to everyone looking for high quality, unique gifts.
The colour and detail in the design of this artist's work is absolutely beautiful. The Ocean Blue jar is breathtaking. I just had to have more. I am anxiously awaiting for the arrival of the pair of bowls with the Lotus Leaf design. This will not be my last purchase from this artist. I truely love her creations.
I must say the pieces that I ordered were beautiful everyone loves them and I love them. real quality workmanship Thank you so much.
Wonderful piece of Artwork. I already have put pens and pencils in it already. Very quick delivery from Thailand. Nice postcard included also. One of Novica's best!
Wonderful cratfswoman! Absolutely adore my Elephant pencil holder. It has a place on my desk with my pens and pencils already. One of the finest on Novica.com!
I have ordered two vases from this artist, both as gifts. They are every bit as beautiful as they look on the computer, and many people have complimented the artist's work. I am very happy with my purchase and will order more from her in the future.
My friend who I sent the vase to said it is stunning. Thank you.
I have recently become the proud owner of another beautiful piece of Ramphan Khumsingkaew's wonderful jade celadon. A lidded box with flowing greenery reminiscent of lush tropical gardens and for me, a wonderful memory of time spent in Thailand. This is certainly a piece of that fascinating country which I can keep and look at every day and which brings alive the magic of the east through the beauty of ceramics in jade Thai celadon. Thank you NOVICA for such excellent service.
""How Beautiful"" - this is my description upon opening the perfectly packaged box containing The Lotus Pool by Ramphan Khumsingkaew. I am so pleased to own another wonderful piece of celadon artwork from this talented artist. The lotus lily has always been a fascination for me and this piece portrays the beauty and elegance of this exotic flower growing gracefully in a green celadon pool - a real source of inspiration. I also enjoy receiving the postcards with each order! Thank you NOVICA.
I have always admired the beauty of Thai celedon and the elephant vase I have just received is beautiful. The pattern and the jade green colour is stunning. Ramphan Khumsingkaew is such a talented artist and I look forward to owning more of her work. I am so very pleased.
The celadon pieces I received are wonderful and the 'Singha' figurine, in particular, is magnificent. Thank you.

I have finally put Ramphan Khumsingkaew's lovely celadon vase on my new mantlepiece and they look like old friends together. Beautiful work!
We just received her owl and it is an exquisite piece and the pictures didn't do it justice. Plus, it got here really,really quick.
I have now received the second celadon elephant--the Mighty blue figurine--painstakingly and beautifully created by R. Khum- singkaew. This is perhaps her most striking and imposing work that I have seen, and deserves to be prominently displayed in order to receive its due admir- ation.
I've just received the handsome celadon elephant, and am now eagerly awaiting his ""mighty"" sibling in just a few days. I es- pecially admire the beautiful finish, its subtle gradations of color and veining, which contri- bute to its visual impact.
My Lotus Candle Holders arrived very quickly. I am thrilled!! They are even more beautiful than I thought they would be. Thank you. Pat
I purchased the bird and flower vase. It is outstanding. It is hard to believe that a human being could achieve such precision in hand painting. The design literally wraps itself around the vase in an integrated, flowing design. This is quite different from the painted design on a typical decorative vase.

The sculpture I bought was magnificent! I could tell that a real artist rendered it.

Over the past few months I've purchased two items from Ramphan Khumsingkaew - the ""Harmony"" vase, and the ""Blue Bouquet"" candleholder - and I'm delighted. The color, design, balance of proportion, and execution, are elegant and extraordinarily well crafted. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you!

I bought the Celadon ceramic vase, 'Blossoming'. It is beautiful! The quality is amazing! A work of art!!! It was wrapped with great care and arrived from Thailand in a reasonable amount of time.

I received the exquisite Red Fish Harmony flower pot today -- in perfect condition, and even more beautiful than I anticipated.
I bought several of your pieces and I have to say, you are my favorite artisan to collect from. There are so many wonderful artists here on Novica- I sometimes have a hard time choosing what to purchase. As an artist myself, I like to support as many I can when I can afford to. However, I will always be dedicated to your work foremost and be a lifelong customer. Thank you, Michelle

I just received the celadon 'Dragon of the Emperor' figurine and the pair of celadon 'Jade Lotus' candleholders. They are beautiful, the pictures and descriptions do not do them justice. Ramphan Khumsingkaew carvings are exquisite.
My new Lotus vase is just beautiful. Thanks.

The celadon ""Vegetable Patch"" jar I ordered arrived this morning, and it is so very beautiful. The surface texture is a delight to feel, and the color gradations are elegant and lovely. It arrived wrapped like a gorgeous gift. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
The ""Magnificence"" celadon vase I ordered arrived and it is gorgeous. The artistry in shape of the vase and the glazing are absolutely perfect. I am so happy I purchased it.
The lotus bubble vase made by Ms. Khumsingkaew arrived yesterday, and I don't think I've ever seen a lovelier piece of modern porcelain art. It is simple yet elegant, the color an exquisitely indescribable shade of blue, and the lotus flowers, one on each side, are perfect. I want to hold it and look at it for hours! What an amazing artwork by this gifted young woman. Thank you so very much, for touching my home and my life with this astonishing beauty!

Thank you for the lovely celadon turtle, Thatsanee and Ramphan! My friend loved it and considered it so special!
I gave one of this artists pots as a thank you gift, and received glowing praise from the receipient. The craftsmanship and attention to detail were wonderful and greatly appreciated. I would not hesitate to purchase another item from this artisan again.
The celadon vase, ""Divine Profusion"" is stunning and, I think, much nicer than the photo suggests. It is surprisingly large but dainty and beautifully designed. A lovely addition to my home. Thanks so much.
I love the ""Green Orchid Bubble"" from Thatsanee and Ramphan. It is so distinctive and graceful! The shape is very evocative and eye catching, and the detail of the orchid is lovely. Well done! Please do more orchids!

Dearest Thatsanee, I really love the beautiful bowl and top that I bought from you! It is truly amazing how your hands guide the way to inspiring people with your artistry. I keep mine in a lighted hutch for all my family and friends to see and admire. You are truly gifted, and I am so glad that you found your true calling in life. Sincerely, Carolyn J Bradley

The vase I purchased is beautiful and met my expectations. The only problem I have is with the cost of mailing, otherwise I would probably make further purchases in the future. Thank you!
Valley Village, CA, USA (near Hollywood)
The ""Spring Butterfly"" piece is stunning in design and artisanship. It is absolutely regal and joins my growing collection of celadon items.
i ordered last year the Celadon ceramic box, 'Little Jade Elephant' and it is just so cute i love the work you do takes a lot of talent. It looks so pretty on my shelf with little things in it I love it thanks
I recently purchased the ""Bamboo Growth"" tea set for a gift for someone special and it is absolutely beautiful! The lustrous jade coloring and loving attention to detail really make this set a stand out for any occasion. Thatsanee and Ramphan, your work is extraordinary and I wish you peace, success and a very Happy New Year! Thank you, Novica, for helping make this Christmas extra special for someone who needed a reason to smile :)
First off, I have been studying ""celedon"" for many years now. I travel allot due to the fact that I am a Captain in the U.S. Merchant Marine. These products are so amazing and such a great example of the art of ""Celedon"" pottery. I am very impressed and honoured to own such art.... Mahalo! Captain Steve Kapena Kepano
Thank you so much for your beautiful vase ""Jade Landscape"". It was a birthday present for my mother and she was absolutely delighted with it and kept commenting on its beauty.
