In September last year I met Phaitoon Sakulson who was selling beautiful glass rings in the weekend market. I bought 10 of them to test them out, and they sold immediately after my return. In January of this year, I visited his family home. His wife is the designer and they have the kiln at their home. I selected 100 rings in various sizes and each of them is a glorious piece of art. The artist has perfected a unique technique for her wonderful designs that the Chinese have thus far been unable to copy, though they have tried.
I am so impressed by the intrinsic beauty of her work, and I think you will feel the same.
An inveterate traveler, I have spent a great deal of time searching for new arts and artisans, mostly in Asia. I am drawn to Asia thanks to my 25-year tenure living in Japan. During that period I traveled extensively and often in Southeast Asia. Upon returning to the US, I formed Arts of Asia in order to share the qualities I admire in Asia with my friends and customers in the US. To support this mission, I continue to spend 4 months a year abroad. The search is never ending!
