This pottery is handmade; we are one of the few manufacturers of this type of clay that is harvested off the river bottom in Vietnam. It's high fired ensuring to bear in the toughest weather conditions and to be durable. The color of products look like a very dark chocolate brown and the finish is like egg shell, but the color varies with each pot, depends on the location where it is located on the kiln during the firing process. These pots can hold large trees, palms or even to be used for making water pots.
