According to the introduction, “Dragon Kiln” is a common type of ceramics in the southern region of China, which could be dated back to more than 3,000 years ago. With the development of the industry, various kinds of tools emerged, and the pottery products made through wood-fired skills always appear surprising due to the firing temperature, time and other factors.
This exhibition brings together works made with different calcination tools over the past decades. These "treasure pottery works" with local characteristics of Foshan show the development and evolution of Foshan pottery.
The exhibition will end on December 15. Some of pottery works in this exhibition are temporarily borrowed from private collectors and will be returned immediately after the exhibition. After this exhibition, there is no arrangement for the subsequent circuit exhibition, so those who want to see Foshan's “treasure pottery works” should hurry up to see them!
