Koji pottery originated from Guangdong Province during the Qing Dynasty. Traditionally the pottery was used mainly as temple and shrine adornments. However, Koji pottery is looked at now as a style of folk art for its variety of soft colors and designs.

 

I visited the Koji pottery shop in Baigong Handicraft Museum. Each piece combined the art of molding, engraving, painting, and firing, resulting in colorful and lively works.

 

What I like most were these little colorful lions in a variety of poses. The shop assistant told me they are made in Taiwan and sold at RMB 300 each.

 

The shop also carries some Tang Sancai, or 3-colored-glaze pottery of the Tang Dynasty. The most figures were horses in various stances (RMB 160 each). Also amazing was a small wooden folding screen, with six tourism spots of Beijing like the Great Wall and Tiananmen Square engraved (RMB 120).
