In this Meet the Maker series, we meet up with Ms.Nong, the highly qualified artisan that specializes in creating the textured look of the skin of a carved teak elephant. Here in this wood carving village, the local people have a collective project where they can contribute their skills of carving to the community for business and export. When Nong receives the wooden elephants from other carvers in her team, it is her role to add some decoration to the whole body of the elephant such as the texture, skin, eyes, and ears. These details make the teak elephant look more realistic and attractive. Once the carved texture has been completed, she then paints them in a brown or gray color to give it that natural look. The tools Nong uses are various sizes of chisels and a hammer. She can only complete 3 to 4 pieces per day so you can see how much hard work is put into creating these handcrafted works of art! Whenever you need to order teak elephant carvings for your business, this wholesale woodcrafts village in Chiang Mai, Thailand is really the answer to your call.
