Preserving Chinese Ancient Crafts

We are a couple living in Wuxi, China, our name are Ni Jun and Cao Zhiwei.
In 2007 we joined a project launched by the Chinese Government aiming to preserve Chinese Intangible Heritage and teach young craftsmen the technique of making clay figurines. We studied with three representatives of the highest level of clay kneading, rewarded the status of master of national arts and crafts in this field.
We decided to become independent to express ourselves more freely, and since 2012 we opened a workshop in Huishan Ancient Town, where we create clay figurines according to traditional techniques.
Located at the foot of Mt. Huishan in Wuxi (Jiangsu Province) Huishan Ancient Town has a history of more than 2.000 years and abounds in well-preserved authentic temples and ancestral halls.
In the area around Huishan can be found a fine-grained type of clay characterized by high viscosity and flexibility, which neither cracks when drying nor breaks when stretched. The local clay has been used since the Ming Dynasty to make Wuxi Huishan clay figurines, which nowadays are still representative of clay toys in China.
In our workshop we are engaged in preserving ancient craft traditions and we guarantee the high quality of each item.
