“Renascence” is a project, which is trying to find the answer of how to give a second life to aged ceramics in China. It includes documentation of the ceramic material and new designs for it. “Sha Qi” is the name we used to call the product, which is a pottery material, but has an unique metallic physical appearance. According to the locals, if we use it to cook food, it will taste more delicious and will not turn bad so easily, not even in the summer. And when we boil water in it, ingredients will be added into the water, which are very healthy to the human body. The project was accomplished in co-operation with local craftsmen.
