Green-glazed stonewares from Zhejiang province were widely exported to the Philippines, Indonesia and mainland south-east Asia. Local potters emulated the Chinese wares, and by 1300 Thailand and Vietnam had developed successful ‘celadon’ industries of their own. After 1400, green- and brown-glazed wares from the kilns at Si Satchanalai in north-central Thailand acquired a prominent place in the export markets of south-east Asia.
