Dragonfly and botanical patterns painted in deep spruce beautifully complement creamy white and celadon glazes, and bring to mind the long, easy days of summer. Expertly crafted in the ancient Vietnamese village of Bat Trang, long celebrated for its tradition of creating fine stoneware. Due to variations in the clay, these canisters may develop a crackle finish. This is natural and part of the unique beauty of each piece. Oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe. Each canister comes with a ceramic lid and hand-carved wooden spoon. Dimensions: 5"h x 4"dia.
Your purchase helps preserve traditional Vietnamese craft skills while guaranteeing fair wages, safety, and social welfare for artisans.
Since 1999, SERRV International has partnered with artisans in northern Vietnam, providing a long-term trading partnership and interest-free advance payment for our orders. Through sales of their products, artisans who are marginalized or disadvantaged, including ethnic minorities in remote areas and people with disabilities, develop craft skills, design products, learn business skills, and organize into production groups. These artisans create handmade ceramics in Bat Trang, a small village on the Red River famous for its ceramic pottery since the 15th century.
Artisans in North Vietnam specialize in tie dye, screen-printing and ceramics to produce their beautiful handcrafts.
