One of the most popular types of ceramics made for both the domestic and export markets was Sawankhalok celadon ware. Although the glaze used in Thai celadon wares is often thinner and less milky than Chinese celadon wares, still successfully imitating the appearance of jade. Sawankhalok celadon glazed dishes with incised designs like this piece have been found in Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, and beyond.
