The history of Thailand, called Siam until 1939, begins with the founding of the independent realm of Sukhotai in 1238. This prosperous period of great growth would last for barely a century. At that time talented potters from China built the famous kilns of Sawankhalok. Known for their avant-garde technique, these ceramics were very sought after starting in the 14th century
