Ceramics from South East Asia

Whereas there has been many publications on these wares over the past 20 + years , they remain an under-appreciated and under-valued field of ceramics. My East emphasises on quality ceramics from Thailand and Vietnam. Their history can be briefly summarised as follows:
Thai pottery mainly dates from 15th to 16th centuries and fall into two distinct groups:
— Central wares from Sukhothai and Sawankhalok kilns; and Northern wares from Kalong, San Kamphaeng, Phan and Phayao kiln sites.
— Vietnamese pottery has a longer productive history and the classical wares from 12th to 16th centuries were produced within a 100 km radius of Hanoi in the north of Vietnam.
