A huge round-shaped building, embedded with colorful porcelain wares, has become a latest tourist attraction in Jingdezhen, East China's Jiangxi province. The three-story house was built using more than 60,000 ceramics, with the windows, doors, ceilings, and walls all decorated with colorful chinawares.

Yu Ermei, 86, is the owner of the splendid house.Though Yu was considered by some locals to be "going insane" to erect the building structure that cost her all the money and possessions, Yu told media it's actually a dream come true, adding that she hoped to leave something in the history of Jingdezhen - the place widely known as China's "porcelain capital", where fine ceramics have been produced for more than 1,700 years.
