Over the past decade, local craftsmen in Shanxi province have been striving to keep their traditional cultural heritage - fahua ware - alive as well as to improve their livelihoods and enhance their sense of happiness and gain.

Fahua is regarded as the porcelain version of Cloisonne, with design elements separated by copper wires. Pieces feature bold, deep blue decorations and glazes in turquoise, purple, green, yellow and white.

Based on traditional culture, craftsmen also innovated and developed the tradition by adding more modern elements, making it more attractive.
