What to explore at Khmer Ceramics Centre?

From the moment you step into the Khmer Ceramic Centre the first thing that you’ll come across is its boutique with its selection of top quality hand-made ceramic items reflecting Khmer art and culture, such as jars, cosmetic bottles, serving bowls, decorative bowls, tableware, oil burners and Khmer accessories. Products are developed using a blend of proven ancient Khmer ceramic production skills and latest techniques based on the research and studies on Khmer antiques. Developed in compliance with European Union regulations, each of the items produced here is as functional as beautiful.

Perhaps the most interesting thing regarding this centre is that it enables you to get a deeper understanding of traditional and contemporary Khmer ceramic art, including stoneware, raku and salt-glazed wares. Further, you can observe the steps involved in the making of Khmer ceramic items that involve conversion of natural raw materials such as Khmer earth and stone into attractive pieces of art. Best of all, the centre provides the unique opportunity to experience the thrill and intricacy drawn in the creation of ceramic artifacts. You can participate in any of the following workshops under the guidance of friendly, experienced staff: Potter Wheel Workshop, Khmer Raku Workshop and Khmer Ancient Workshop. Also, you will receive a free gift as part of the workshop.

The shop don't have anything special to buy and see. This here is more for your kids if they like to try to do something with clay. The staff was helpful to our daughter as our daughter find out that it was not so easy like she have see at TV. I find the price a little bit high for some clay, and they charge 5 US$ if you want to have one extra burn. The will delivery next day so let us see the result.
