Opposite of Temple of Heaven¡¯s east gate, you can see many shops selling traditional handicrafts in the Hongqiao Market. One stall, called Dajing Pottery caught my attention, as it had such beautiful potteries displayed on the shelves.

At first glance, I thought the items were wood-carvings, as the designs were so vivid. Each piece of pottery, made in the Henan Province, had its own unique design. The owner of this stall told me that they only sell their own brand of Dajing pottery, renowned for its completely hand wrought process. It combines the art of modeling, painting and carving together. Then it¡¯s fired at 1300 degrees Celsius, so pottery can last long time without any change in the pattern or color.

I especially like the one pottery which depicted a city bustling with people walking on the bridge. The design is based on a famous painting call the Scroll of Pure Brightness Festival on the River.

Prices of potteries range from RMB 200 to RMB 1000.

Besides pottery, the stall also offers some other handicrafts like fans, chopsticks, wood carvings, and bronze carvings.

What I appreciate:
Completely hand-made potteries with fine workmanship

What customers appreciate:
Unique patterns on the potteries, wide choices of styles

Most chopsticks are plain, both in color and in shape. But for parties and occasions when you want to bring out "the good china", YunHong offers just the right matching chopsticks.

 

One of a dozen outlets in Beijing, the YunHong shop in DaShiLar has a large selection of sandalwood and china chopsticks decorated with Peking opera masks, animals, classic novel figures, auspicious flowers, and much more.

 

Their Peking opera series, my personal favorite, comes with five pairs of chopsticks and five chopstick holders for RMB 130. Each pair has a special opera mask engraved in detail.

 

Also popular are the 4 Classics Series (RMB 150), with designs from the most famous novels in ancient China. Although 3 are unknown in the west, the Romance of the Three Kingdoms should ring a bell for video game players.  

 

Other products included engraved sandalwood bowls and spoons, all perfect to make your table set a little bit of Chinese.

 

Prices generally start at RMB 58 for chopsticks and accessories. The shop assistants speak a little English, and they are quite friendly. They told me that foreign tourists love their chopsticks as gifts during their tour in Beijing.
