Yunnan Tour Feedbacks
Potteries of Tengchong County,Baoshan

Ancient people in the Neolithic Period began to make potteries in Tengchong County in the west of Yunnan Province, and the pottery production had its heyday until the Tang and Song dynasties. Many potteries unearthed in Tengchong can date back 1,000 years, and still appear quaintly artistic.

In the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), more advanced techniques had been introduced into Tengchong by the ancestors of families surnamed Sun, Liu, Jiang and Hu--all of whom migrated from the Central China, and undertook pottery making in today's Wanyao Village of Mazhan Township. From them on, quantities of potteries began to be traded in West Yunnan and to North Myanmar, and Wanyao Village became the pottery-producing centre on the western bank of Nujiang River.

Tengchong potteries are mainly made from high quality volcanic clay. The temperature for kilning must stay over 1,200 degrees Celsius; and the final products will appear multi-coloured, artistic and durable.
