Bat Trang ceramics

Bat Trang is a ceramic village just outside the city of Hanoi in Vietnam.

It was great to take a little trip to Bat Trang and walk up and down the main road... with shop after shop of ceramic vases, containers, and animal figurines (of ALL sizes!).

Traditionally, the ceramics were all the blue and white patterns... but now there are a variety of colors -- all beautiful.

Ms. Hue and I ended up each buying a couple small single-flower vases... we both liked the white ones glazed with tiny orange spots.
