The Incredible Ceramics at the Royal Palace in Bangkok.

I just love these!

Opher's World

There is something very Asian about the gaudiness, fussiness and ostentatiousness of the Thai ceramics. I do not mean that in a derogatory way. Their use of colour and glitziness would seem wrong to Westerners I think. We tend to go for things that are a bit more muted and less fussy. It is almost too glitzy. But it works in Asia precisely because of that. I have felt the same about the temples in China, India and Sri Lanka. Yet I love them. They are full of bright vitality.
