Thai Celadon Nativity

This exquisite nativity was crafted in the Celadon Ceramic Studios run by Duangkamol Srisukri whose father started the studios. Setting this nativity apart is the Celadon technique as well as the traditional Thai setting featuring Thai garb, the Thai angel known as a deva and the water buffalo.

Celadon is the name given by Europeans to a very specific type of ceramic that was originally developed some 2000 years ago in the Zhejiang province of China. Celadon ceramic is characterized by a specific type of glaze as well as by its jade green color.  Today, Celadon is produced in many different Asian countries, including Thailand.
