Southeast Asian Ceramics: Selections from the Collection of James E. Breece, III
Southeast Asian Ceramics: Selections from the Collection of James
E. Breece, III
The ceramics of China have been famous for centuries and clearly influenced ceramic production in nearby Southeast Asian countries. This may be the most apparent in Vietnamese ceramics, as parts of the country were closely aligned to China for nearly one thousand years.
This exhibition features ceramic wares from Vietnam, Thailand and Burma from James E. Breece III.
These ceramics are under represented in museums around the world and have a greater artistic validity than is largely recognized. Most importantly, to this day these wares reflect the cultural nature of these three countries.
Ewers with lids,
Vietnam, Tran dynasty (1225-1400),
Stoneware with incised design and celadon glaze, H. 20 cm,

A two-part catalog was produced for these two exhibitions.
