“Ton-Tao”, the Baan Mueng Goong Ceramic Pavilion reimagines a gallery for ceramic works. Inspired by the village’s ceramic kiln reflecting the history of their craftsmanship, the gallery creates an immersive experience resembling the interior of a large kiln surrounded by ceramic pieces crafted by the villagers of Baan Mueng Goong.

The design includes ceramic bricks, ceiling tiles, and a cladding system to protect from the sun and rain, as well as improved airflow features. The pavilion’s gradient colors on the brick walls and ceiling tiles resemble the heat’s effect when firing ceramics. Within the interior is a showcase space using wooden wall-mounted displays designed and constructed to fit perfectly into the original brickwork of the Mueng Goong village. These elements are designed to be rearrangeable, allowing for various display styles. Moreover, they can be adapted for future displays of additional ceramic works. The pavilion not only gathers various craftsmanship from the community but also creates a place for visitors to learn and embrace ceramic works.
