For a long time, glazing had always been my main interest, as it was a useful means to convey my ideas in general. However, in recent works, I have begun to focus more on topics about human relationship, culture and environment. I have also discovered that, with the use of lacing technique, leaving the glaze out would provide a wider space for viewer’s imagination.
My most recent works have used stoneware, porcelain and raku techniques while focusing particularly on surface decoration. These decoration techniques point back to a particular period of Thai history when cultural forces were competing for a place in shaping Thai society. Today different forces play themselves out on the streets of Bangkok shaping the country and society in which I live.
