When it comes to pottery, people would think of Yingge, but there are also masters in Sanxia. Zhi-Hao, a teacher, said, “I first learned wood carving, but when I came in touch with pottery later, I found that the characteristics of artworks could be presented in a more out of the box manner if pottery and carving were combined.” The teacher uses firewood for the kiln process of making pottery, which must be made in the mountains, so he said jokingly, “I often have to retreat to the mountains to cultivate my mind.” He makes every piece by himself and keeps close tabs on the complicated and delicate firewood burning process. If you wish to possess your own unique porcelain, Mr. li is the man you’re looking for.
