Ceramic works were used as building materials because of two main points. The first reason came from the application of construction's material of Lanna architecture style such as clay roof tiles can turn to be facade material, meanwhile ceramic also a material that has the potential to be an external building material by itself.


And the second part is to glorify the craftsmanship of the local people. Chiang Mai is considered a province that has many interesting craft movements in any kind of skill. And is an area that attracts craftsmen in many fields come to set up a studio in Chiang Mai and always try to emerge the quality of their crafts.

The ceramic facade is designed to be linked to the color of the sky during the changing times in a day. With the different reflect angle the surface is designed to be curve tile. Old style luster pearl glaze is used for this tile for plays with the reflection of light.

The charm of ceramic work after glazing will cause each tile to have a slightly different color, resulting in a rhythm that reflects the environment of the architecture at different times.

Sher maker has co-developed ceramic tiles with 3 ceramic studios in Chaingmai.
