Spring Kiln has a history of more than 30 years. It is a leisure farm specializing in pottery. Bowls and cups are made with our hands and wills, as the clay spins, the work is slowly formed and this is the fun of doing pottery. Before throwing, the staff will introduce skills and techniques of doing pottery as well as the dos and don’ts. During the casting, hand stability is challenging so if doing pottery in haste, the clay would be ruined and we made futile efforts.

The show time comes after the introduction. Though it doesn’t take much time making a bowl or a cup, it still requires 15 minutes even if you take it easy. Before the making, you can first think about the shape to form; during the making, there is no need to get nervous when the shape doesn’t meet expectations, which is common. If your bowl or cup gets asymmetrical, pumping yourself up for “Each piece is unique.”

Asides from doing the pottery, there are also parents bringing kids here to make clay prints to mark the growth. The fired slab is a keepsake to hang at home.

The staff of Spring Kiln will put some finishes, paint the glaze, on the pieces of work before placing them in the kiln. It takes one month to have finished products. Customers can opt for home delivery or pickup in person. <br/>Spring Kiln offers DIY pottery activities as well as tea and Hakka meals. If still in the mood of making around meal time, the farm is a ready choice. Or the tea shop is available for visitors to drink and chat even to exchange experiences.
