Kinmen Ceramic Factory金門縣陶瓷廠
Multiple ceramic DIY activities are available.
The only official Guan Ware kiln in Taiwan.
Kinmen Ceramic Factory, situated next to Huandao South Road, was set up in 1963. It is the only Guan Ware kiln in Taiwan that uses high-quality kaolinite. With the painting skills of the ceramic artists, it serves as an exemplar for the ceramic industry in Kinmen.
The ceramic products made by Kinmen Ceramic Factory are mostly used for Kinmen's famous Kaoliang liquor. They are popular among liquor lovers in Taiwan and other countries. The factory has also brought in many techniques; among these, the Celadon ware painted with natural scenery and the sophisticated plain-colored glaze are amazing. Moreover, the factory has a ceramic museum that showcases all sorts of ceramic works and collects hundreds of precious ceramic pieces. Souvenirs are also available here, so don’t forget to check them out when you visit the factory.
Visitors can also make a reservation for the wine bottle making tour. This tour allows you to learn more about how the ceramic artists create unique art pieces through molding, slip casting, fettling, bisque firing, glaze application, glaze firing, appliqué, kilning, and painting.
