Ceramic Utopia

Clay is the most basic foundation for human bings, it comes from the earth, it is also a part of the earth, and even the earth itself, and it seems to be even more so in ceramics. We tried to use this "clay" to compose the film. In an experimental way, it does not belong to the fiction films, nor is it a documentary. In the hands and blood of the ceramist, in the kiln fire, and in the air of Jingdezhen, it seems to be connected to the distant and shadowy "the Peach Spring beyond this world".
