Viet & Tung

Slide Viet & Tungs workshop The workshop of Viet and Tung is located in the pottery village of Bàt Tráng outside Hanoi in Vietnam. Tung and Viet are the youngest generation in a family business, which was founded more than 8 generations ago. They are very ambitious and work to continue a long-standing craft tradition, combined with their vision for the future. Fair trade is central to this. The company has recently been renovated; it is uncluttered and clean and has well lit and ventilated areas for production.

Besides the family, many farmers from the area work when it is a less busy time in agriculture. As a result, production is not always as fast, especially around harvest time.

Slide Production In the pottery, every product is made by hand. A cup goes through many hands before it is finally ready to be packed. Apart from the family, it is the nearby farmers who work here when farming is less busy. Production therefore does not always go fast, especially around the harvest time. Clay Glaze Baking Making a cup goes in several steps. The cup and the ear are first made separately. Corrections are made by hand and the ear is "glued" on the semi-dry cup. After further drying, they bake the cup for the first time. After baking for the first time (bisque), the cups is glazed by dipping it in the glaze. Manual applied wax ensures the straight line on our CYL cups. The cup goes into the oven again. This time the cup will be baked several days at a very high temperature (>1300C). The high temperature ensures that the cup is dishwasher and microwave safe.

Slide Material Kinta’s stoneware is made from 100% local raw materials. The clay is found in the north of Vietnam. All our food safe glazings are also obtained from local raw materials.

A refined clay is used for the CYL collection. This is visible in the design of the products, which look sleek. For the Rutunda collection we use a more dotted sand clay. The dots of sand provide this collection with a natural and pure look. We love it when the colors of the glaze match beautifully, for a timeless mix of colours.
