Dragons and Lotus Blossoms: Vietnamese Ceramics from the Birmingham Museum of Art
Dragons and Lotus Blossoms: Vietnamese Ceramcis from the Birmingham Museum of Art.
Vietnam created the most sophisticated ceramics in Southeast Asia. Thought they borrowed from China, Vietnamese potters explored their own indiginous tastes and developed their own production techniques. Blessed with the smooth gray-white clay of the Red River Valley, they created pieces that are amazingly light and thin walled, with painted, incised, and carved decoration.
Dragons and Lotus Blossoms presents the Birmingham Museum of Art's entire collection of Vietnamese ceramics, from traditional Han-Viet shapes of two thousand years ago to the nineteenth century.
