This is the site of one of the world's largest ceramic pieces made in an enormous wood heated kiln. One is given is an opportunity to make a pot on a wheel from a lump of clay with good instruction. After doing so, the folks there will fire your piece and send it to your home. Wonderful experience.

After that, we had a pottery lesson. Everyone could choose to make his / her own work with either hand or machine. Teachers fixed things up for us when we did... More

We were just passing by as we finished our trip from Sun Moon Lake. It's just along the road when you are on your way to the freeway. The place is old and there is an entrance fee. I will not go there again even if there's free entrance. We had to park across the street, which also has a... More

We enjoyed a couple of hours at the Shueili Snake Kiln. The museum was interesting to look through and you are able to make your own pottery if you have time. They also have a cafe so you can stop for a drink and food.
