Malaysian Pottery - This page updated June 6, 2023. Klick on the photos for a good look!
Malay pots differ from 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: It's been difficult to get new pottery since 2020 (particularly Malay pottery) but we have received a truly great batch this spring. All of the new designs are now out on display both on the website and on the shelves at our store. We sell a lot of pots...so if you're driving a long way for something specific, call first to avoid any potential disappointment.
