Their products are inspired from  sangkhalok but modified it as a Mothana style with the technic of glazing, firing and soil techniques that use local soil as the main, that is, common local stoneware. The glaze is the oxide glaze, high power, they their glaze is homebase  and developed the glaze formula by themselves, that has became the glaze of Mothana.

As much as they want to keep the legacy of sangkhalok and family tradition. Khun Mothana once said “My father’s knowledge of making ceramics is very valuable and should not be lost from this world at all” and so the art as well. The technics and source of material is one thing but they never limited their imagination with art. As the customer needs sometime their product can be decorations or food containers.

Fact about Sunset

When the sun goes down in the evening or is emerging in the morning, the sun’s light travels through a layer of atmosphere that is thicker than usual to reach the Earth’s surface. Because this world has a circular ridge morning and evening, the light of the sun will shine in the direction oblique to that part of the earth’s surface did not shine directly on the scene like during the day It makes the atmosphere in the direction that the sunlight shines in an oblique direction. Absorbs more of the sun’s blue light rays than normal, let the red light rays and orange rays continue to pass. Allowing us to see the sun at this time in a deep red color  just like into the red cup that Khun Chaloemkiat inspired from. Moreover,  to see the sun bigger than usual due to the curvature of the atmosphere in the oblique part of the eye acts as a magnifying glass to make the image look more like the sun. The picture of the big sun is not the real sun, but is an enlarged view of the red light rays surrounding the real one.
