The Floating Market
Designer- Kerry Goodwin
Shape- 5/13 (height 13”/33cm)

The floating markets that take place on the canal waters or ‘khlongs’ of Vietnam and Thailand, offer a colourful and vibrant insight into one of the more traditional trading places in Asia. From dawn until noon, local traders load up their boats with an array of exotic fruits and vegetables. Malacca grapes, Chinese grapefruits, mangoes, bananas, coconuts and flowers all over-lap underneath the shady cover of multi-coloured, bamboo parasols.

Kerry Goodwin, inspired by the visual chaos of the floating market, has washed the background of a two-handled Moorcroft vase with the golden yellow of sunrise and the hazy green of freshwater to make a perfect backdrop for the varied colours of the boats and their delicious cargoes. Tonnes of flavoursome food scatter the boats, while at the opposite ends, neat little bodies hunch over their prized livelihood, each wearing a traditional Thai hat.
