Abstract

From Kalong, Thailand, stoneware, Dia: 13". Kalong is the largest of the northern Thai kiln sites and was first reported in the 1930s. At least 100 kilns spread over a 15 km area have been discovered in the region of Wieng Papao, Chiangrai province. They are the most dramatic of the northern wares, created in underglaze brown in bold patterns. The clay is pale in color, and the vessels thinly potted with well-carved footrings. Although the decoration on this charger is in keeping with that generally seen on Kalong wares, it is larger than usual and the walls of the plate curve more than one would expect. Thus, one can conclude it is probably of modern manufacture, but, still illustrative of ancient decoration.
