Pottery pieces typical of the Red River Delta are being on show at an exhibition that was opened in Hanoi on February 1.

The displayed works are created by outstanding artists and artisans who are doing their best in preserving the essence of this traditional craft. Many of them are already familiar to ceramic art lovers such as Tran Quang Hai, Vuong Quan, Nguyen Hong Quang, Vu Thang and Nguyen Van Thang.

Nguyen Giang Van from the organising board said the exhibition is meant to introduce the art of ceramics to the public while offering a playground for artists and artisans.

It is expected to be held annually to help advertise Vietnamese pottery to the local and foreign public.

The “Vietnam Contemporary Pottery” exhibition will run through March 30 at Heritage Space in Dolphin Plaza, 28 Tran Binh Street.-VNA
