Luy Lau ceramics to be exhibited in France

Bac Ninh, December 18 (VNA) – Some 300 porcelains made by the Luy Lau Pottery Cooperative will be put on display in France on January 13-15 next year, said Director Nguyen Dang Vong.

Established in 2006 in Thuan Thanh district, northern Bac Ninh province, the Luy Lau Pottery Cooperative produces 10,000 pieces of 10 product groups every year, a number of which are exported to the United States, the Republic of Korea, Japan and the Europe.

Luy Lau ceramics, evidence of a culture dating back 2,000 years in the Luy Lau region which now belongs to Bach Ninh province, were revived and developed by craftsman Nguyen Dang Vong in Man Xa village, Ha Man commune, Thuan Thanh district.

Prominent among his works is a 2.2 tonne ceramic vase, which was on the display during the celebrations of the Thang Long – Hanoi millennium anniversary in 2010.

The ancient Luy Lau used to be a major economic centre of Vietnam. Laying on the banks of the Dau river, it was a great convenient port that many traders from China, India and Central Asia came here to do business.

During that time, Luy Lau was home to large-scale pottery kilns equipped with “modern” technologies such as a system of high-speed ovens and turn tables.
