Context of the observation

Yingge, a small town a 30-minute train ride southwest of Taipei City, is know as the pottery center of Taiwan. One landmark concerning Taiwanese ceramics is the Yingge Ceramics Museum, which not only exhibits historical tea pots but at the time of our visit also displayed the “4th Taiwan Golden Tea Pot Prize” with a big variety of handcrafted tea pots.

1 Interpretation

The diversity of handcrafted tea pots featured in the permanent exhibition as well as in the “4th Taiwan Golden Tea Pot Prize”-exhibtion indicates a great interest in this product. There seems to be a huge handcraft scene.However, it was noticeable that the focus is put on the tea pots only: A limited number of pots came with matching tea cups, hardly any tea pitcher or smell cups were exhibited.
