Thiva Boonnak

Thiva Boonnak

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 the area.

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.
