Thiva Boonnak speaks reflectively of her art amidst the scattered tools and the pieces in progress that fill her family's old-fashioned workshop.

"Our region's designs are all special. Each one is unique and grandiose." Her soft words echo the proud sentiments passed on by her family generations before her.

Thiva Boonnak tells how her father taught her and her brothers the silversmith craft, and how he showed them not only the technical, intricate skills, but also transmitted the smith's labor of love. With such passion flowing from their hearts to their hands it is not difficult to understand why the work of Thiva Boonnak's family is so highly esteemed in Thailand.

The Boonnak's home witnessed the birth of silver crafting in Thailand at the turn of the 20th century. King Chulalongkorn was patron of the arts and settled Burmese craftsmen in the area. They shared the secrets of their ancient and intricate craft, which the Boonnak family has since elevated to its highest plateau.

"The Magnificent Emperor!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The craftsmanship of that Thiva Boonak displays when she creates her aluminum repousse wall panels is absolutely incredible! Her artistic talent creates a 3-D image of the dragon with the aluminum and seems to bring it alive on the wall panel. The amount of detail she creates in her work allows you to imagine The Dragon Emperor moving across the wall panel. We will adorn our wall proudly with this panel. Thiva Boonak truly is a Master Craftsman!!

I have traveled all over the world, but I could not carry home things like this with me. I have one wall in my hallway dedicated to elephants....this most impressive piece stands out among the others.

The detail of the carving is spectacular as well as the creative design. The framing and background material make the dragon stand out.
