phan celadon

DSCN3224   the Phan kilns are situated approx. 28 km south of Chiang Rai in Northern Thailand.

They produced almost exclusively celadons of a finer quality than the average Sawankhalok celadon.

The potting is skillful and well balanced using a fine clay and the glaze is evenly applied to produce a pale green as in the colour of young rice. All pieces are finely crackled.

Phan celadons are fairly rare and this dish in perfect condition is an excellent example.
