Paper long abstract:

This research aims to discuss regional ceramic industries of the Red River from the 14th to 16th centuries. Basing on the author's previous study on the development of Chinese Yunnan blue-and-white, this project explores further Southeast cross-border linkage along the Red River with the ceramic production of northern Vietnam. I will critically review the most updated archaeological evidences of production of Yunnan ceramic and Vietnamese ceramics.

The relationship between Chinese Yunnan and Vietnamese blue-and-white wares will be explored as they shared many similar features on style, manufacture technology and materials. The discussion will be based on the studies of approximate chronological order on both sides. This is to provide another perspective of regional ceramic development in addition to the only mainstream effects of Chinese Jiangxi Jingdezhen blue-and-white porcelain in the past studies. A regional ceramic production of the Red River will be taken into account as the main production centers in both cases are located in the Red River.
