Jirasak Gavila has learned about silverware production from his parents since he was young. He is particularly interested in the works created by his senior craftsmen, such as Manop Chaikaew and Somsak Jinorot, and, later, asked them to teach imprint and embossment. With his love in silverware, he carries on the production of silverware. He can be considered one of the first breed of craftsmen who produce plates from aluminum. At the beginning, however, his works were not in popularity as the material is not from silver. Later, these works became more acceptable, and there were interested people who asked him to demonstrate the production of silverware, and sold his works. When the price of silver increased, many silversmiths turned to the production of aluminum plates, which, later, became more popular among the makets. In addition, Jirasak was invited to be a part of construction of the Art center (Pavilion 3 Krue Ba), situated at Muen Sarn temple. Many of his master pieces include the Art center at Muen Sarn temple, high-relief embossed water container (bowl), and high -relief embossed metal plate.
