HISTORY

One of the few constants in this world, for over 500 years, is the quality of workmanship, design, and color of Bat Trang pottery. Located near Hanoi, the local village sits on the Red River and still produces works of a unique style with special characteristics.

It is a harmonious blending of modeling, sculpture, design, graphics, and color.    A labor intensive process begins with design, modeling, carving, decoration, enamel coloring, and firing.  The long history of Bat Trang pottery includes centuries of research into forms, models, decoration, and enamel, both coloration and finish. 

Principal among these are crackle glaze and fine glaze, with colors led by celadon greens, magenta reds and browns, and cobalt blues. 

Combining modeling, sculpture, form and design, colored enamels create graceful, timeless motifs.  Creative passion can be seen and felt in each piece.

The long French occupation from the 1850s to 1954 nearly destroyed this finest of art forms. Throughout the period of French domination of Vietnam, they restricted general crafts production in both direct and indirect ways. Following the 1954 Geneva Convention, Bat Trang pottery production resumed, mostly by state-run cooperatives and small, private enterprises.

Breakthroughs occurred from this time in which modern, creative ideas blended with traditional forms.  This encouraged and enabled new shapes and colors to grow from the best of the inheritance from the centuries of craftsmanship before.

In the first ten years following the modernization of Vietnam's economic fabric (beginning in 1986), production of Bat Trang products began to travel to distant markets, first in Southeast Asia, then to Japan and Korea, and more recently to Europe and America.

Modern Bat Trang pottery in various forms reveals the following distinctive characteristics:

  • Unique breakthroughs in form, curve and sculpture

  • Unique application of decorative patterns

  • Unique colors and use of colored enamels

  • A distinctly Bat Trang esthetic element of overall design and function.

Of the many artist in Bat Trang, we feature only the top artists and their best designs.
