Thetraveljunkie.org – I have heard so much about Samut Songkhram, but I’ve never been there before. It is about 72km from Bangkok, and it is famous for its rich culture, historical buildings and amazing food.
When I was in Samut Songkhram. I visited Baan Pinsuwan Benjarong, a home-industry producing exquisite ceramics which are hand-painted in colorful ancient era motifs.
Learned more about the process from skillful artists transferring traditional designs onto the ceramic pieces to firing in the kiln.
I found so many cool Ayutthata Ceramics and Rattanakosin Ceramics.
Over the centuries, Thailand has pursued the development of closer relations with countries throughout the world, both east and west.
This has let to political, culturl and commercial exchange.
Benjarong porcelains, dating back more than 300 years, exemplify a shared heritage with their very unique design and patterns. A combination of Chinese and Thai artistry.
Sigh. So I created my own ‘Benjarong’ pentachrome ceramic. Beautiful!
I wish I had enough time to learn and try all the ceramics.
Baan Pinsuwan Benjarong is definitely worth a visit. Yeah! I wish I had more time to learn and enjoy the delicious mix artistic and heritage.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
