From the Ashes: Reviving Myanmar Celadon Ceramics
National University of Singapore Museum
21 Lower Kent Ridge Road, Singapore
Feb 09, 2017 To Dec 30, 2017
Detail: The exhibition introduces the ash glazed wares produced by Myanmar potters in the 15th century and the current attempts to revive and develop this tradition. Archaeological investigations in Lower Myanmar in the 1990s revealed historical kiln complexes specialised in making greenware (celadon). Identical wares uncovered on 15th-century shipwrecks in Southeast Asian waters and at land sites in the Persian Gulf suggest that Myanmar celadon was commercially distributed.
