Khmer Ceramics & Fine Arts Centre
Cambodians have been making sophisticated ceramics since the Third Millennium BC. By the time Angkor Wat was constructed in the 12th century, it was trading finely-glazed pottery – far more sophisticated than contemporaneous Europe’s – with China and Siam. The Khmer Ceramics & Fine Arts Centre was founded in 2006 to revive the art. Production techniques exactly mirror those of Angkor, and the centre has even built a reproduction clay dragon kiln. There’s a shop on site and the centre offers two-hour pottery classes.
