Our decorated wooden bowl making

In the Chiang Mai night bazaar there is a family that paints mango wood lacquered bowls and plates. The design is made up of lines, dots, curves and such. We though they were very lovely and asked the man if he would design one for us from scratch so we could video it as it was decorated.

Have a look at the video and you will see how they do it. It took several days and visits to complete as some times when we went back as requested he was not there. Although we asked him not to complete it unless we were there to video it as you can probably guess he finished it one day in our absence.

Ah well as they say in Thailand……….   Mai Pen Rai  🙂

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
