Bowl

Asian Art

In the fifteenth century, the Ming emperors halted international trade, and the many Asian countries that had depended on China for ceramics were forced to look elsewhere. Thailand and Vietnam quickly increased their ceramic manufactures and developed various sophisticated wares that were traded to kingdoms throughout Southeast Asia. Among the many celadons produced by Thai kilns, only a few are as blue as this lovely bowl.
