Abstract
This research examines the current situation of Cizhou ware production in Pengchengzhen, This research examines the current situation of Cizhou ware production in Pengchengzhen, Handan, Hebei Province, China. Participants in my project were local artisans, ceramic workshop owners and government officials. Pengchengzhen is a small town with about one thousand years in making ceramic. During the 1950s, the local ceramic craft business went through Socialist Transformation and was integrated into state-owned economy until the beginning of the twenty-first century. Most of the local artisans and ceramic workshop owners were previously workers in the state-owned factories. Through a look at their work, experiences and beliefs, I explore what Cizhou style means to them, how they see the state-owned period, and how they are coping with the problems of survival as not only craftsmen, but also successors to the local ceramic making tradition in contemporary China.
