||Koh Kred is
a tiny island in the Chao Phraya River, located
in Nonthaburi Province, only 30-45 minutes drive from
Bangkok. On this island live a community of craftmen
famous for their distinctive style of pottery which dates
back many centuries. The potteries are known for their fine,
red-black glazed surface and intricate design. They are
all hand-made piece-by-piece and you can see the process.
People live on Koh Kred and nearby are the descendants
of the Mon people, and they have managed to retain the
skills of their forefathers.
