TRIP DESCRIPTION

Ceramics interior design is very in. Each work pottery incorporated into a space retains an element of fire, earth and the artist’s talent.

When entering a luxurious hotel restaurant or mansion, one is often surprised to find rustic pottery, reminiscent to many in Vietnam of familiar childhood memories. The curves of the molded clay sometimes seem deep enough to bare the artist’s soul and sometimes simplistic enough to be formed by a child’s hands.

Pottery décor is by no mean s cutting edge, as day id used in both ancient and contemporary design. Decorative pottery, however, has taken a modern twist by blending the new with inspiration from rural styles. The lines on a Phu Lang pottery vase for example, are sophisticated adaptations of mountainous patterns. The clay mosaics that adorn swimming pools, villas and offices are talented hands; the material is born from the earth, bearing both the heat and coolness in the layers.

The current generation of pottery artists uses s scholarly and folk style, representing a long history of artisan who has gradually won over the public’s hearts. Although clay was temporarily put on the backburner, no architecture and design increasingly include pottery. Exquisite crystal mo longer monopolizes living rooms, nacred timber and sindora wood are wood are not the sole pride of collectors, and polished tile does not dominate buildings. Simple pottery is used more and more; a familiar emblem of the earth’s permanence.

It is difficult to distinguish between everyday household pottery and pottery art. A crooked vase, considered a caste in regular commercial trade, transforms into artwork with a coat of dripping, rough enamel. Terracotta art can e anything from a deformed teapot, covered with strings like a fish net to a simple panel depicting a lotus lake.

Like other forms of art, there is no clear definition of ceramic art. What matters is that the art trigger great feelings in its audience. Disregarding the common urge to know the background and reasons for a piece of artwork, one can instead feel the art. Pottery, which can resemble trees, animals and even the humblest of insects, is often an artistic reflection of nature and the earth.

Moving beyond the trends of aluminum doors, glass windows and the fever of shiny plywood furniture, today connoisseurs realize the beauty and enchanting charm of pottery. With dripping, cracked, smooth, crude or salt enamel – or even rough terracotta – pottery visually warm, seeming to emit the heat of the urn and the earth. As oppose to crystal of wooden decorative objects, pottery always leads people back to what is the oldest and the closets to them. Today the more modern society is the more people revert to romanticized memories of the old days.

A rough Phu Lang jar made from red earth thus has the power to stimulate wandering thoughts of the countryside. A bathroom lined with terracotta tiles, even with vivid pictures a hint of traditionalism. Hand – made 10 cm square tiles of blue, purple of light pink enamel are typical features of rustic fine arts and counter the coldness of industrial ceramic tiles.

No one denies the convenience and high-class look of chrome – plated or polished tiles made in factories, but these do not inspire the emotions and soulfulness of detailed and unique hand – made ceramics, earth and the artist’s talent.

There are other used of pottery in building. A livelier option than plain painted walls, terracotta relieves inspired by ancient designs are now popular in interior décor. The wooden statues produced in mass that adorn homes are now coordinated with glazed terracotta vases embellished with lotus and heavy round terracotta jars – which bring a natural and pure breath to any space.
