Yuan Dynasty "Mantou Kiln" under reconstruction
From:CNTV.CN  Writer:  Date:2011-08-19

 

A "Mantou Kiln" of the Yuan Dynasty in Jingdezhen, China's porcelain capital in Jiangxi Province, is undergoing reconstruction.

This kind of "Mantou Kiln" is named after the steamed buns very popular in China. And over the centuries, these kilns witnessed the rise and decline of the porcelain industry some 1600 years ago.

However, despite the great contributions the "Mantou Kiln" helped to make in ancient times, especially during the Yuan Dynasty, this method of porcelain production has long been abandoned in Jingdezhen.

The ongoing reconstruction of the "Mantou Kiln" will merge the architecture style of the Yuan Dynasty with traditional styles from the Ming dynasty.

The refiring ceremony of the "Mantou Kiln" will be held in October.
