NDO – Located in a rustic and peaceful land on the banks of the Thu Bon River in Hoi An city, in the central province of Quang Nam, Thanh Ha pottery village was formed by immigrants from Thanh Hoa province in the 16th century.

Over the past five centuries, the villagers have preserved its unique traditional methods, such as shaping the pottery by hand and on turntables without patterns.

The pottery products from Thanh Ha village were created with diverse colours because they were not enamelled and were baked in traditional wood stoves.

Thanh Ha terra-cotta park is considered as a unique pottery museum in the country, reproducing the process of making the pottery products of the villagers.

Visitors can make their own pottery products under the instruction of artisans.

A product was created by Nguyen Thi Duoc, the oldest artisan in the village.

The pottery products were made using traditional methods.

Pottery masks are quite popular with many customers.

Foreign visitors are impressed with the small and delicate products.
