About Intarawut

Intarawut Gallery originally opened its doors eleven years ago in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The large showroom, near Harvard Square, far away from my native Northern Thailand, is where I first displayed my own creations: from ethnic silver jewelry, to translucent silk scarves, hand loomed indigo cotton batiks, and handbags made from hill tribe weavings. My designs freely used intensely colored hand-loomed textiles from my homeland, while my silver jewelry gathered its inspiration from traditional hill tribe designs -- the resulting work had an ethnic feel infused with a contemporary Western design sensibility. From the start, the textile and fashion accessories in my Cambridge gallery, found added context in the company of a very cohesive collection of antiques from Southeast Asia, especially carved wooden Buddha sculptures from Northern Thailand, Burma and Laos. These beautiful objects of devotion are still displayed side by side with woven ikats now turned into cushions, silk-covered jewelry boxes, mulberry leaf writing journals, incense collections, and handmade floating lotus and orchid-shaped candles. My enterprise has now move to a worldwide web gallery. The core of the gallery remains my silk creations: especially wall hangings with subtle luminosity embroidered in complex post-modern designs. Over the years, my design work and gallery have been featured in numerous magazine articles including: The Improper Bostonian and The Boston Globe.
