Details

Celadon-style glaze creates a natural crackling effect on this handmade mug from Duangkamol. A pottery technique that goes back two millennia, the distinctive color of celadon was prized for its similarity to the color of jade and highly valued in East and Southeast Asia. Iron in the clay reacts to the heat of firing to create the blue-green hues. A parade of elephants marches around the center of the mug, rendered in beautiful detail.

I appreciate both the authentic ceramic style and the traditional attire of the figures. It is very nice and different from any other sets in my collection.

"This is a lovely piece!"

It feels much more substantial in weight than I was expecting - it must be made of stoneware or porcelain. I really like the wash that covers it; there are tiny glints of sparkle throughout! So glad to have this beautiful Pegasus.

Were drinking a bit less coffee and a lot more tea and these enhance our experience. They are bigger than they looked which is great for us. :)

"Lovely and lovingly crafted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This small vase is a charming addition to a home of any style. The blue glaze is a very soft shade of blue, and blends well with colorful flowers or with creative bunches of dried twigs and pods of seeds. It will be used frequently whether filled or unfilled. Its lovely on its own.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Duangkamol's mother sent her to study ceramics with an elder master. From him, she learned the basics but, with diligence, she has mastered this art herself. For Duangkamol, every batch of ceramics is a lesson. She eschews the chemicals common to modern celadon production, preferring instead to use the ancient natural process for glazing. This process is difficult to control. Her 100 percent natural glazes are made from wood ash and straw ash. These materials have been used for generations to define the distinctive crackle particular to celadon. Her workshop is a celadon laboratory with skills handed generously back and forth from master to student and from worker to worker.

Job Creator

Job Creator

The ceramists who work with Duangkamol range in age from 25 to more than 70, and most of them have been with her for years. They enjoy their work and are happy to have a good income. She strives for a stress free work environment. Duangkamol credits the steady orders she receives from Novica customers with reducing her personal stress, and she now feels more free to focus on her art.
