The Product: Blue and white Thai ‘Swimming Fish’ pot
A largescale, elegant, blue and white pot redolent of the Thai design aesthetic. The pot is handmade to an ancient design, yet decidedly modern when styled in the right setting.
A blue and white pot is an enduring classic when it comes to Asian ceramics. The pot hails from Thailand.A fact demonstrated by its distinctive, scrolling Thai motifs, ‘Bua’ or Lotus flower decoration and swimming fish design.
We’d showcase this particular example within modern, built-in, open shelving, on a low sideboard or atop sturdy a cupboard or armoire. Blue and white pottery pairs fabulously with wooden furniture. This pot could be the stand-out piece in a cool, nature-inspired scheme full of pale, natural woods and soft, earthy hues. Check out the range at Pinch Design to get a feel for what we mean. Alternatively, check out our TS Styles feature on the blog about grouping and displaying decorative Asian pottery in a modern bathroom.
This ‘Swimming Fish’ pot is the only pot of this design we shipped back from Thailand from the family-run pottery in the countryside surrounding Chiangmai. It is therefore unique to our range. The pot measures 36cm high x 28cm diameter. The pot is also quite heavy but we will ensure it is carefully wrapped and protected for transport. A small surcharge for the weight will be applied at checkout.
