Malaysian Pottery - This page updated July 27, 2021.
Malay pots differ from the Vietnamese pots in a number of ways: Not only are the shapes and motifs different but the clay itself has different characteristics. The walls are less thick which delivers a lighter pot and they are fired in gas fired kilns which delivers pots with more uniform glazes. It is easy to get two matching pots for they will be of the same colour all round whereas finding two precisely matching Vietnamese pots is more difficult...pots tending to be slightly different in colouration. SPECIAL NOTE: 2020 was a VERY busy year for glazed ceramic pots. The producers in Malaysia, Vietnam and elsewhere are PROFOUNDLY busy making more pots to resupply the world. In that light, we have very low quantities of some styles noted below, either that or a colour or size could be depleted. A great new batch of pots is coming but won't be here until endish August at the earliest. We sell a lot of pots and what is here today may be gone tomorrow. If you're driving a long way for something specific, call first to avoid any potential disappointment.
