Cochin Ceramics Teapots
The only long-time ceramic tradition that involved artistic considerations was Cochin ware, a folk craft originally from Kwangtung and brought to Taiwan in the 19th century. At that time, Cochin ware consisted mainly of decorations for the walls and roof ridges of temples, including human figures, animals, birds, and flowers in bright, glossy colors. Today, there are only a handful of craftspeople who still possess the traditional Cochin skills, most of whom are in the central-island city of Chiayi.
Cochin Ceramics represents the artistic Achievement of Taiwanese artists. Officials in Taiwn always give away Cochine ceramic as gifts to their honourable guests. It is often taken as presents. Because Cochin ceramic is unusual and precious, using a Chinese saying: "you, the owner, are the one with fate".
