Karen Christians has been traveling to Chiang Mai, Thailand for 4 month stays for over three years. Making in Thailand is integrated in the Thai culture from traditional Thai Chasing and Repoussé at the Silver Temple, exquisite wood carving in Bawantai, traditional Northern Thai cuisine, Karen Hill Tribe Silver jewelry, and Celedon pottery to contemporary ceramics and lacquer wooden bowls, to advances in EV technology at a Makerspace Thailand. Making is a way of life.
