Information

The so-called “Kwan Aman House”, which means the potter’s village, the Pottery Museum in Ko Kret Subdistrict is home to more than ten potters and is the origin of Mon people. The museum displays traditional Mon pottery that portrays the history of Mon people since their settlement on the delta of Irawadi River. The unique characteristic of Ko Kret pottery art is the engraved jar or pot or the currently called “adorned earthenware”, which is perfectly proportional and embellishing. Not only considered the oldest handicraft in Nonthaburi province, but Ko Kret pottery art is also used as the provincial symbol. 

 

The museum was founded by Mr. Pisan Bunphook, who collects a variety of potteries that reflect the lifestyle, wisdom, as well as faith in Buddhism of the Mon people. For example, jiam (basin) or Song Kran pot used to contain rice soaked in water to offer to Buddhist monks on Thai New Year Day, etc. In addition, visitors will notice the houses of pottery maker families on the streets of the island, along with daily pottery items, such as plant pot, mortar, water jar, etc., that are still in use today.
