Stoneware Dish (back)

Abstract

From Sankampaeng, Thailand, Stoneware, H: 2 1/8" x Dia. 9". While the export ceramics of the Sawankhalok and Sukhothai kilns have been known in the West since the nineteenth century (though they were ascribed to Chinese kilns at that time), the smaller, northern kiln sites have only been explored beginning in the second half of the twentieth century, the first, Kalong, having been discovered in 1933. Sankampaeng is the second most extensive of the northern kiln sites (with eighty-three kilns). The wares are generally monochrome wares or underglaze iron. This kiln site was probably producing at the same time as Sukhothai and Sawankhalok. This wheat-colored vessel is finely potted, with incised lines as the only decoration. The mouthrim is unglazed, as the plates were stacked rim-to-rim in the kiln. The clay is a pinkish-buff color.
