If you visit the famous Panjiayuan Collection Market, dont miss the Xiangcun Art Studio. They specialize in china clay works made by graduates of the Northeast Normal Universitys Art Department. The exhibits by the entrance will surely attract you into the shop.

 

Once inside, youll find various clay models displayed on the shelves. Their products are divided into three main categories: figures, ashtrays, and pencil vases. The most striking characteristic of their works is the countryside style. The rustic clay figures give off a soothing feel in the midst of a busy city.

 

I found a set of small windlass, often seen in Chinas countryside, very interesting. Priced at RMB 150, the set contains a well, a bucket, and a rope-winder, all delicately designed.

 

Prices for smaller figures sell for RMB 180 each, while the bigger models cost RMB 350 each. The studio also offers custom-made service. If you show them a picture, they can create a caricature of the picture within 20 days.

 

What I appreciated

Clay modeling art, Chinese countryside style, original handicrafts.

 

What customers appreciate

Works of art made of china clay.
