Folk artisan builds 'porcelain palace'in E China city

A close look of the 'porcelain palace' with ceramic fragments inlaid into the wall, built by Yu Er'mei in East China's Jiangxi province. Spending about 6 million yuan ($902.400), the woman completed a museum with the purpose of collecting porcelain ware. The artisan in her 80s built a gallery in the village of Xinping, Jingdezhen city, in Southeast China's Jiangxi province, displaying various porcelains and ceramics created through her lifetime. Yu Er'mei and her husband have persevered in carrying forward their craftsmanship since early childhood. Jingdezhen is well known as the "Porcelain Capital" of China thanks to its tradition of producing chinaware for over 1,700 years. Nowadays, Yu is a master in the field and owns a factory producing ceramic products, which are popular in both domestic and overseas markets. [Photo/China News Service]
