Malaysian Pottery

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.
