Disappearing ancient utensils

Qingshaqi, or green clay utensils, are traditional handicraft products with more than 300 years' history. The utensils are made of Gantu, a kind of local soil, and have been used in palaces since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). With a flat economic outlook and a weakening market, few workshops are making Qingshaqi products these days. [Photo/Xinhua]
