Thai StyleWhile the mirror rests within a sturdy woodenframe, we were captivated by the clusters of driedsticks fitted around the mirror. These thin rodsare stripped from an extremely fast-growing thornyweed species in the tropics. Known as ?the sensitiveplant? its leaves visibly pull away when cominginto contact with animals. As far as we know,these plants have never been put to use by humansocieties. Totally sustainable (actually it growscompletely out of control almost everywhere), wealso like it because its scientific name is ?Mimosa?.
Wood Eastern Serenitys carved wood products come from environmentally friendly tropical wood. Tropical Thai wood is the perfect material for all the wood products you will find here at Eastern Serenity. The wood used is fumigated and oven-dried to ensure pest removal and provide weather resistance. Each item is hand carved using traditional techniques passed down through generations of skilled artisans. Appropriately sized pieces of wood are used to minimize waste. The basic shape is carved using large chisels and block hammers, the sculpture becoming increasingly more defined as the finer details are then carved into the wood piece using detailing tools, fine sanding, and intricate brushwork. This attention to detail creates a piece that will add its unique presence to any environment.
