A small porcelain shop recently opened on the north side of Di¡¯anmen Dongdajie. It¡¯s easily recognizable, with its white signboard which shows the shop name ¡°Chunny Ceramics¡±. Their catchphrase, written in Chinese characters, was ¡°We produce practical works of art¡±. I went inside to check it out.

 

The wooden shelves show various uniquely shaped ceramics, including sculptures, vessels, home decorations, tea sets, wall decorations, and necklaces. The shopkeeper, Mr. Li, told me that all of their products are designed by professional artisans in Jingdezhen, the famous ceramics capital of China.

 

He also said that each item is uniquely handmade. If you buy one cup, you can be sure that there¡¯s no other cup in the world like it. To check, I looked at their ceramics one by one carefully, and found that each one really did look different from others.

 

The cups I picked up had irregular small pits on the surface, but my fingers fit around the pits comfortably. That¡¯s when I realized that this cup was designed this way.

 

One cup usually costs RMB 10 - 20. Note that nearly each cup bears their registered brand name ¡°Chun Ni¡±, which means ¡°Spring Soil¡± in English.

 

They also accept customer requests. If you have a particular idea in mind, they can design and make a custom ceramic work in about 20 days. Two assistants who can speak some English ensure smooth communication.

 

What I appreciated

Original design, one piece one style

 

What customers appreciate

Distinct ceramics, good for gift and souvenir
