Continuing Craftsmanship

Rounded shapes, smooth glazed interiors and unglazed bases characterise stoneware pieces handcrafted by artisans in Bàt Tráng, a small village in the north of Vietnam that has a long tradition of pottery making. It lies beneath the Hong River, about half an hour from Hanoi. 

The old pottery has been owned by one family for eight generations and is supported by socially responsible company Kinta, founded by Frans Noordhuis 30 years ago with a focus on local production. Now, Kinta is co-owned by Frans alongside Nicoline Wrisberg, who acts as product developer. They visit the pottery each year, collaborating with Tung and Viet, the youngest generation to run the business. 

The ceramics are made from local, raw clay found in the north of Vietnam and baked at a high temperature of 1250°C. 40 artisans keep the tradition of pottery making in the area alive, using traditional techniques to create the pieces, which have strikingly modern forms.
