Coconut Art :: Samut Songkhran

What a meaningful thing! This artist makes use of coconut shells and turns it into a piece of art. Every piece has a meaning behind it, from politics to old Thai phrases. Some of them serve practical functions such as desk lamp, toilet paper holder & coffee cup etc….

Sustainable, Artistic, Functional, Meaningful, Practical- what more can I expect from a single object?

The shop is hidden in a fruit orchard in Samut Songkhran, about a 1-hr drive from BKK. It’s not easy to find (in the middle of nowhere) and the language barrier is also a problem. Every work must come with a brief description so people would appreciate more. I hope to distribute these wonderful works very soon…
