This shop is the one of most attractive artworks shops I have ever visited.
The owner is an artist. The products carried here fall into several categories: celadon wares, red pine stone accessories, scissor-cut artworks, handmade T-shirts.
They have two features in common: they are all hand-made, and are all original pieces. Every work breathes its creator¡¯s painstaking efforts. The owner designs the T-shirts, while the other products are designed and made by friends of his.
I found quality to be obviously higher than what I had seen before. Correspondingly, prices are also higher, nearly twice as much as for run-of-the-mill items.
Since all his products are original, the owner asks people not to take photos. His art has been acknowledged by many foreigners. His clientele is 80% from foreign countries.
What I appreciated:
Unique designs, high quality, artist owner.
