Details

Jaifah Aksornsri finds inspiration in the architectural styles of ancient Lanna temples for the design of this spirit house. According to Thai customs, when people finish building their own houses they create a san phra poom, or guardian spirit house. A Buddhist ceremony takes place to invite a protective spirit to inhabit the small house. It is believed it will bring luck, happiness, success and security against mean spirits or enemies who might threaten the family or their home. Painted a glossy white, the wood spirit house glistens with red and clear mirrors.

This came to us all the way from Thailand in perfect shape and absolutely gorgeous. I have wanted one for years, and this is the perfect size. I can easily put a candle or incense on the landing. It is truly a work of art and unique, guests always comment favorably.

This elephant is a delight. I love the design and it feels very smooth to the touch. It also is bigger than I thought it would be. Very pleased with this purchase!

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.
