Vietnamese pots are particularly hand made. They are fired for up to 3 weeks at high temperatures in wood fueled kilns. Sometimes bits of ash fly about in the kiln and sometimes pots explode because of air bubbles still trapped in the clay. In this way, bits of clay, ash or glaze can end up on other pots. You don’t get the kind of flawless glazing that one gets from the natural gas fired kilns but the trade-off is that you get a stronger pot. Vietnamese pots are well known for their strength, thickness and wonderful blue glazes. 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. A great new batch of pots is coming but won't be here until well into August.
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.
