LADDAVANH CHANTHRAPHONE, an artist and dance instructor, based in Brooklyn Park, will spend six weeks in Laos to expand and deepen her skills in the art of Laotian traditional fruit and vegetable carving. She'll investigate the different shapes and styles of traditional carved bowls and platters; animals such as birds, peacocks and butterflies; flowers such as the lotus and the hibiscus; and unique leaf designs. Vegetable and fruit carving is a venerable Laotian tradition that has been passed down from ancient times. Chanthraphone will study with Mrs. Sengphet Viratham, a master of the form. She will have one-on-one training sessions in which she will receive Professor Viratham's personal attention six hours per day over a period of six weeks. She expects the experience to not only improve her technique but to help her build a strong individual and creative voice, which she will develop and share when she returns to Minnesota.
