Yandabo is a village on Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River in central Burma (Myanmar). The Treaty of Yandabo, ending the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824–1826), was signed in Yandabo on February 24, 1826. It is also a famous destination for its habitants' pottery making ability. When visiting Yandabo the tourists will be able to see unique pots made out of the Irrawaddy River bank clay. For the villagers pottery making is fundamental to store water and food and for this reason just one person can make up to 70 pots.
The Treaty of Yandabo financially crippled Myanmar but the Burmese fought two more wars before in 1885 the British took the whole country. Today, Yandabo is a village of some 400 houses, with each being the home for 5-10 people. 30 of the families are potters, while the other villagers are fishermen, farmers or suppliers of raw material like clay or wood for the kilns.
Yandabo's women make the pots and it is a 2-girl job with one person potting and the other operating the wheel using a treadle. Then the pots are decorated and arranged in a circular pattern to dry as there may be up to 3,000 pots in a single layer that is covered with a large pile of straw, ash and wood then set on fire. The heating process takes 3 or 4 days, including cooling. At the end the pots have changed from brown to brilliant red colour. The pots are transported all over the country by boat.
