Exhibition boats essence of Vietnamese ceramic arts

An exhibition themed ‘Vietnamese ceramic arts’ is taking place at the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi, displaying more than 100 artworks from 56 artists nationwide.


Items on display have been selected from a competition which was launched by the Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism more than four months ago.

The organisers received a total of 278 entries from 120 artists in 25 cities and provinces. A total of six prizes are set to be awarded as part of the event.

The works on display reflect the artists’ creativity, innovative techniques, experimental designs and decoration styles with pottery.

They also illustrate the artists and crafts people’s efforts to safeguard and promote the essence of traditional Vietnamese ceramic arts while blending a fresh air of modernity into their works.

The exhibition, which will run until October 27, aims to provide the public with an opportunity to admire the diversity of ceramic materials used as well as the richness of the shaping methodologies.

It is expected to introduce the public to various ceramic artworks nationwide, contributing to developing ceramic arts in contemporary life./.
