Thailand and Laos Dvaravati Mon kingdom: The art was created predominantly to serve Theravada Buddhism. Remains of Dvaravati architecture so far excavated include stupa bases: The plinths of Buddhist assembly halls, which existed near the solid monumental structures, have also been discovered. Many terra-cotta and stucco fragments of decorative surface designs and celestial figures have also been found. It is likely that many other ancient monuments are encased in later stupas that are still being used for religious purposes, for it was probably customary not to destroy an old sacred monument but to encase it in a new shell, maybe several times over, and perhaps to construct a small external replica of the encased original alongside. At many sites, especially Lop Buri, Ayutthaya, and U Thong, fine Dvaravati sculptures have been found among the architectural remains. Particularly important are the seated and standing Buddha figures in stone and bronze. Many of the faces have characteristic Mon features, with lips turned outward everted and downward-curved eyelids marked by double channels. Some of these Dvaravati images may well have furnished models for later Khmer art in Cambodia.

Probably a bit of both. You will also see a remarkable similarity in the calligraphy of a series of these marks, probably written by a small number of writers, even though the company names are different. At this stage, I am not sure what this means. In general, we do not know the identity of the calligraphers, especially those who did the marks sometimes the calligrapher of an inscription on the body of the porcelain will sign his name.
This is the main reason why there are so many private company marks during this period. The shapes of the porcelains produced by these studios and factories are therefore quite similar, especially for the more complex shapes. Thus, while these Jiujiang studios may have had different suppliers of plain rice bowls, with their slight peculiarities of shape, size and proportions, the suppliers from Jingdezhen of cong shaped vases or lidded serving bowls appear to have been fewer and therefore these exact shapes can be seen on differently decorated wares from Jiujiang, Nanchang, Shanghai and Jingdezhen.
Between and the invasion by Japanese forces and the continuing war caused the almost complete destruction of the small porcelain manufacturers and the shops which sold their wares, especially in Jiujiang and Nanchang.
