Nguyen Hong Quang, who graduated from the Hanoi University of Industrial Fine Arts and has been appreciated for his application of pottery in interior design and home décor, is the owner of a pottery-kiln in Lo Cang hamlet
Situated at the foot of Dau Mountain, many earthenware potters in Pho Khanh Commune in the southern central province of Quang Ngai still earn a living from the traditional trade despite rapid urbanisation.
The over five-century old Bat Trang pottery village is situated on the bank of the Red River.
