NDO – An exhibition themed ‘Vietnamese ceramic arts’ is taking place at the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi, displaying 107 artworks from 56 artists nationwide.

The exhibits were selected from 278 entries sent to the Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism by 120 artists across the country.

The jury also presented six prizes to outstanding entries in the two categories of artistic ceramics and applicable ceramics.

The works on display reflect the artists’ creativity, innovative techniques, experimental designs and decoration styles with pottery.

They also illustrate the artists and crafts people’s efforts to safeguard and promote the essence of traditional Vietnamese ceramic arts while blending a fresh air of modernity into their works.

The exhibition, which will run until October 27, aims to provide the public with an opportunity to admire the diversity of ceramic materials used as well as the richness of the shaping methodologies.
