From a sixteenth-century blue-green glaze jarlet from Sukhothai to an Arita figurine created around the same period in Japan, the peerless ceramic exhibition at the Bangkok National Museum will appeal to all.
The exhibition “Endless Epic of Japanese-Thai Ceramic Relationship in the World’s Trade and Culture” runs until December 14 at Siwamokhaphiman Hall. The special event, co-organized by Thailand’s Fine Arts Department and Japan’s Saga Prefecture, honors Her Majesty Queen Sirikit the Queen Mother’s 90th birthday as well as Her Majesty’s dedicated work in promoting crafts and ceramic works.
The showcase features a selection of the finest Thai and Japanese porcelain and ceramic works created around the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries.
More than 90 exhibits from the Kyushu Ceramic Museum in southern Japan are on display.
