Koh Kret in river Chao Praya , (25 images)|
Koh Kret is a tiny island in the Chao Phraya River. The island has a community of craftsmen famous for their distinctive style of pottery which dates back many centuries. Koh Kret pots are known for their fine, red-black glazed surface and intricate design. The islanders are the descendants of the Mon people, and they have managed to retain the skills of their forefathers. Pottery makers are located along the pathway around the island. There are some huts where visitors are able to see through the pottery making process. Villagers make various kinds of clay products for daily use such as pots, mortars, and flower pots. Also, in the village, there is the Ancient Mon Pottery Center where pottery in various style is exhibited.
