1.1.6 Traditional Porcelain Clay Mill

Traditional Porcelain Clay Mill

As on the way to San Bao Village, you might hear a "bang bang bang bang bang"  in the distance, that means you getting close to this clay-tiled pavilion you see huge hammers going up and down in constant motion. Jingdezhen is the city that still remains this old traditional clay mixing factory. The kaolin or mineral stone is crushed, ground, washed, precipitated, and dried in preparation for the clay mixing factories. The site is opened all the time, but you might find workers there from time to time. So good luck if you could see them making the clay.  (as now with new development of the city, I think they have removed this mill.)
