32 years, Clay Technician.
I started to work very young; we do not have the opportunity to go at school. At this time the peace was not fully settled in Cambodia people were very poor due to this conflict situation. We live few hundreds of meters from Angkor Wat which was for us a simple temple; I was not aware about the magnificence of our culture.
I discovered my own culture through the work at Khmer Ceramics, we are teach about what our ancestors done, and how they done it. It is really a down to earth experience, as working with Khmer Ceramics gives us a good living standard, due to the good working conditions. On the other part we learn a lot regarding our culture. I’m very proud to participate at the revival of my own culture. We must maintain this very well as our knowledge is traditionally transmitted by teaching our own experience to trainees. We really have a future in here and we can build our family I a secure environment.
