The exhibition focuses on pottery in traditional architecture, beliefs and religion, as well as in- house decoration and furniture of Vietnamese from the past to the present. This theme reflects Vietnam’s pottery culture and its history through thousand years of history.
Vietnam potter first appeared about 8,000 years ago with very simple design as well as limited function but soon became popular, developing from daily using things to decorating material and housing furniture. This led to the creation of numerous pottery villages in Vietnam, stretching from the North to the South, and a considerable number of them are still producing pottery day-by-day to preserve this traditional industry of Vietnam.
