Bantaoyao Crafts Studio for Jiao-Zhi Pottery aims to promote the art and craft of Jiao-Zhi pottery.

Upon entering the garden, all the exquisite and colorful patterns of the pottery will surely leave your eyesight in a blur!  The outdoor decorations all possess traces of Jiao-Zhi pottery: not only is the garden seat pieced together from mosaics, the national theater masks on the wall are also molded. Works can be found everywhere.  And here's a secret that few people will pay attention to: there's a bitter melon wall hidden behind the entrance ticket office. It's also a work made from Jiao-Zhi pottery! The studio not only introduces the history of Jiao-Zhi pottery and its method of production, but you can also come across masters at work. This is an exquisite and delicate traditional art. With the cooperation of the government, it's being used to decorate empty spaces as well.
