In San Juan de Oriente : Their life is to give form to earth. Pedro’s entire process involves about 15 steps from start to finish. Some of these steps include forming the clay on a foot-powered pottery wheel, smoothing the piece, carving the designs, drying, baking the piece in the oven, painting, and shining. Pedro’s oven heats his ceramics to a whopping 825° C! He’s a very talented artist and multi-tasker and can explain his craft to you all while he’s shaping a piece on his wheel.

Pedro works by himself and says that he’s never made the same piece twice, as things always turn out a little bit differently. Like so many talented artists, sometimes he starts with a plan while other times he just “gets in the zone.” He produces both traditional Nicaraguan pottery pieces in addition to more modern, experimental styles for local galleries.

They can be framed, made into pillows, quilts, bedspreads, wall hangings, handbags, tote bags, placemats, jean jackets, vests, jeans, t-shirts, chair covers, craft projects or decorate your childrens' rooms with them. The authentic molas are meticulously hand-stitched.

Chalermchai Kositpipat (Thai: born February 15, 1955 in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand), is a Thai visual artist. Primarily a painter, Chalermchai's works have been exhibited worldwide, and he is known for his use of Buddhist imagery in his art.

He started out painting movie advertisements on billboards. His early murals mixed traditional Thai Buddhist temple art with contemporary images, which was controversial. Nonetheless, he was commissioned 1988 to paint murals for Wat Buddhapadipa in London. The murals took four years to complete and were controversial because of the contemporary stylings. "I got complaints from everybody – from the [Thai] government, from monks and from other artists, saying that what I was doing was not Thai art," he was quoted as saying in 1998.

Among his works is Wat Rong Khun, an ornate white Buddhist temple being built in his native Chiang Rai Province. Work on the temple was started in 1996, and still continues.

Oub Kham Museum, Chiang Rai

Starting as a passionate collector of items of Lanna art and culture 20 years ago, a retired teacher Julasak Suriyachai opened his house as a private museum to exhibit thousands of rare and hard to find northern-style items, as well as the artefacts of the Tai people from neighbouring countries.

He named the place Oub Kham Museum, derived from a northern term referring to a golden serving bowl used by the royal family during the Lanna period, which lasted from the 13th-18th centuries. The museum is located in Muang district in Chiang Rai, Thailand’s northernmost province.

The collection includes carved thrones, embroidered costumes, Buddha images, antique jewelry .

such as jewelleries, royal costumes, sculpting tools, brass statues, furniture, other royal utensils, ancient books, Buddhist scriptures and sacred texts, as well as folk literature written on mulberry papers and palm leaves. Moreover, Julasak has profoundly researched on historical backgrounds and utilities of every objet d’art in his possession.
