The Pottery Workshop, Jingdezhen welcomes international artists to experience life in Jingdezhen. We provide modern comforts for Resident Artists to explore traditional Chinese methods of ceramics production. Our Residency Programs are unique to any other in the world because artists are immersed in a porcelain producing city. All the pieces our artists create are finished and fired by the artisans in our community. We are located within The Sculpture Factory, a place where a high concentration of mold makers, throwers, slip casters, potters, glazers and public kilns coexist.
