Spring-proof your home after Spring Cleaning!

Stacking Teapot, Cup and Saucer by Ten Thousand Villages

This beautiful, hand-painted and hand-glazed item along with many more were made by the talented artisans at Unimex Hanoi in Vietnam. Vietnam’s blue and white ceramics have been sought after throughout the world since the 15th century. Today, potters blend artistic skill with time honored techniques in the famous pottery village of Bat Trang, just east of Hanoi, where there are as many kilns as houses. Artisans pour clay into molds, and carefully remove the pieces when they are set. Paint and glaze is applied by hand, and when dry, the pottery is fired at very high temperatures, giving it strength and durability.
