Details

Native raintree wood is used to create this pleasant little smiling frog by Jaifah Aksornsri. Using techniques passed down to her by her parents, the artisan finishes the instrument naturally, which accentuates the natural grain of the wood. A rod is included as part of the design, and can be used to create a fun, frog-like croaking sound when rubbed against the back of the frog as a percussion instrument. The Tenasserim frog is a species native to Southern Thailand.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Growing up, Jaifah was surrounded with Thai antiques and artisan designs that her parents collected and made. From her mother and other artisans, she learned the traditional techniques that she uses to produce the high-quality wood and metal designs her workshop is known for. She has taught these techniques to many of the artisans that work with her. She hopes that someday her children will want to continue this work but, so far, they have shown little interest in pursuing it.

Jaifah and her husband are actively involved in their children's education. They encourage not only their studies but all of the extracurricular activities that interest them.

Jaifah provides for her children the same sort of loving family environment that she grew up in.

Jaifah is able to provide jobs for other artisans in her workshop.

I purchased all of these items as gifts, for a wedding and a graduation The details are beautiful! There is nothing like this to find in our local markets. The pieces are beautiful combinations of metal and wood.
