Our studio was founded in 2010 by Karin Phisolyabut, who earned a B.A. in Ceramic Design from Thailand and a M.A. in Fine Arts from the United Kingdom.
The name “Yarnnakarn Arts & Crafts Studio” was created by his sister, Prim, who works with him in their family business. In Later years, this family business joined local craftsmen in the area, and Karin’s family members all work together in our home studio in Bangkok.
“Yarnnakarn” means to continue to establish the correlation between the idea of nostalgia and the passage of time.
