With the progress of science and modern communication, new glazing and firing techniques and potting equipments have become more readily available.

In other cases, modern pottery has gained new life from various contemporary art movements, such as cubism, abstract expressionism. futurism and impressionism. A new era of ceramic art is beginning. This exhibition intends to present the works of local potters who pursue the art of pottery in different directions.
