A Vietnamese ceramic firm has exported luxury ceramic products with patterns painted with pure gold to many countries.

The prices of these Made-in-Vietnam products are several hundred to tens of thousands of US dollars. They are ordered by super-rich people in Middle Eastern countries.

The products are expensive because they are crystallized porcelain, mainly jasper, and decorated with patterns painted with pure gold.

Specifically, a set of five worshiping items is priced from VND60 to VND120 million ($3,000-$6,000), a set of dishes of 62 products is VND9.8 to VND11.9 million ($400-$500), and a set of two feng shui globes is priced VND199 million (over $9,000)

According to tests by the Institute of Geology of Vietnam, up to 82.48% of jasper (SiO2) is crystallized in these products, the highest rate ever.

Artisan Le Duy Hao in Dao Xa, Phu Tho province, who created this special kind of ceramic, with the brand Nason, said he had cherished this idea for many years before successfully creating the products.

Hao invented a special technique to ensure that his products are completely non-toxic.

Hao said the products are burnt in 1300°C furnaces. Gold patterns on products are manually drawn by artisans to guarantee that each product is one of a kind.

Hao’s company currently supplies eight kinds of products, mainly for the purposes of worship and feng shui.

Hao’s products are favored by the rich for their uniqueness.

Some traders from Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates have visited Hao’s workshop to order his products. They also invited Hao to visit Dubai to make his product there.
