  Shiwan Artistic Ceramics Co. Ltd
Shiwan's ceramics technique was shaped in Tang and Song Dynasty and flourished in Ming and Qing Dynasty. Therefore, owing to its history over one thousand years, it's compared to a precious flower in Chinese arts' history. The leader of Shiwan ceramics technique is Shiwan Artistic Ceramics Co.,Ltd,. The Company, founded in 1956 as a small factory producing only artistic pottery, has been developed into a large-scale modern enterprise engaged in the production of many products with "Red Lion" brand names, such as artistic ceramics, ancient garden ceramics, Spanish-type roof tile, western-style roof tile, stone-resembled tile, stone-porcelain tile, artistic garden tile, etc. Shiwan Artistic Ceramics Co.,Ltd, famous at home and abroad for its traditional Shiwan ceramics, has a professional team of designers, which are represented by 6 Chinese industrial arts masters. This company has inherited and developed the outstanding tradition of Shiwan ceramics techniques ranging from lively earthen figures and animals with thick and earthy ceramics glaze, to modern ceramics of plain, elegant and fresh patterns, thus forming its own unique artistic style and making Shiwan ceramics techniques extraordinarily splendid.

The artistic ceramics of Shiwan Artistic Ceramics Co., Ltd are divided into four types of figures, animals, micro-sculpts and daily utensils, of which the figure ceramics is granted the national Golden Medal in three consecutive times, the animal ceramics is granted the Hundred Flowers Medal and Silver Cup Medal, micro-sculpt and daily utensils are granted Quality Product Medal of Guangdong Province. Following the principle of "quality product is based upon elaboration", each piece of ceramics with "Red Lion" brand name is produced via six complicated procedures (including design, plaster molding, pouring slurry for figuration, amending cog, glazing and burning).
