Vinh Long, The city of Pottery

Vinh Long, The city of Pottery — Vinh Long ceramics are popular in Vietnam, not only for their elegant shape but also for their pink color, which makes them different from those produced in other regions.

The drawings come from sculptors or other artists, who also deal with the polishing of ceramics.

All products are baked in an oven for seven days at temperatures of 100-200 degrees Celsius during the first four days, and in the last days the temperature is raised to 900 degrees Celsius.
