Their products are inspired from this period of time in Thai history but was modified to their own specific style with the techniques of glazing, firing and soil techniques. Using local soil as the main, it is considered common local stoneware. The glaze is the homemade oxide glaze used with high power has become Mothana Ceramic’s distinctive technique.

As much as they want to keep the legacy of Sangkhalok and family tradition, Khun Mothana once said, “My father’s knowledge of making ceramics is very valuable and should be kept preserved from the decay of time,”.

More about Sangkhalok

The word Sangkhalok has different interpretations and assumptions. The first few pieces of evidence were Chinese ceramic ware from the Yuan dynasty, discovered in a sunken ship in the Gulf of Thailand. In the 19th Buddhist century, a comparative study of Sangkhalok and Ming Dynasty Chinese pottery was founded in the Philippines. It can be concluded that these ceramics were found scattered all over the world, thus making our knowledge about Sangkhalok quite blurred. One thing that can be confirmed with this information is the period it was being produced – Sangkhalok ware has been set to last from between the 18th to 19th Buddhist century mainly in Sukhothai. During the Ayutthaya period, however the product was promoted and marketed as an export product, which led to mass production and slowly established ceramic ware as part of Thai traditional culture. This form of craft has been known as local utensils and tableware ever since. In the present time, purchases and production has declined due to modern outlooks on lifestyle, but it still is considered a classic piece of the past.
