One of the places that was a MUST SEE for me was Baan Celadon in Chiang Mai which was a large artisan studio which creates a variety of stoneware developed in this region called “celadon”. It is characterised by it’s pale green or blue crackled glaze which mimics the colors of jade.
I pretty much lost my mind in there and purchased an elephant teapot, creamer, sugar, and tea mugs and saucers plus a number of gifts for family. My dad in his pottery days tried to create this type of pottery so the stoneware has fond memories for me.
Here’s Diana peeking behind a celadon elephant while was settling up my bill. A photo of me with more pottery follows at https://sandramiller.com All the pieces at this studio are wheel thrown or hand sculpted…no molds used….super special
