Benjarong – Traditional Thai Ceramics Benjarong is perhaps one of the most colourful and ornate of the Thai handicrafts. Benjarong is the name given to a style of hand painted porcelain from Thailand. The name literally means “five colours” (Sanskrit) due to the original use of five colours in the designs although more recent developments may utilise more colours. Benjarongs are created from fired white porcelain. Enamel colours are applied one at a time, with over-glazing (to create a “swelling” effect) and the piece re-fired in a kiln after each colour. Each firing takes at least 6 hours. Gold may be added as a trimming to finish the piece. As such Benjarongs require skilled and patient artisans to produce each item. Benjarong designs traditionally use repetitive forms such as geometric patterns or flower based. Benjarong porcelain dates back to at least the 13th century where they were produced exclusively for the royal court. During the early 19th century a variation on the style, known as “Lai Nam Thong” developed where the gold was added. Benjarongs are no longer the exclusive property of nobles and the wealthy. Benjarong items can be anything that can be made out of ceramics, such as tablewares, tea sets and covered bowls. SaraDar is pleased to be able to offer customers Benjarong pieces at a considerably discounted price. Please come into the shop to see what colours and patterns are available.
