Title: Objects of the Dragon Kiln
Objects of the Kiln is a book about the Castle Peak Dragon Kiln and the ceramic objects that were fired there. Built in the 1940s, this Grade 3 Historic Building is the last intact dragon kiln in Hong Kong and one of the few remaining structures of its kind left in the world. The kiln manufactured pottery used widely by Hong Kong people — from clay pots to penny banks — and is emblematic of Hong Kong’s post-war industrialisation from the 50s to the 80s.
