Garden of Asia's Profile

About

I am from Thailand originally. I have always been close to nature, living in a small village in the South of Thailand.
I came to Canada about 7 years ago. About 2 years ago, I started making miniature zen gardens in recycled bowls.
About 6 months ago, the idea of taking the root of a tree and turning it into a useful object like a lamp inspired me. We all need lamps!
I have worked with roots of lilac, pine tree and cedar trees, so far.
I get a lot of enjoyment from working with wood. I like the challenge of figuring how to turn the shape of the root into a lamp and of matching it to a suited lampshade.
I also like the idea of recycling for artistic purposes.
