    I love this! I really enjoy handmade pottery. I’m lucky that I live in a town with lots of rustic potters, so almost everything I own is handmade. I always try to pick up something handmade as a souvenir from the places I visit. Most people probably wouldn’t think to bring pottery back from Taiwan, but I would! These are just gorgeous! Lovely photos.

    I was in Yingge pottery town in Nov 2013. So much to see and take in, I must return. There are many different types of pottery, glazing techniques and pricings. In fact, after travelling for 6 weeks, it is here that I found my new dinner setting. I should have bought it then but I also want to return and talk to people I meet. This place is a unique experience which beckons your time. Enjoy. Gary
