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.

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.
