City of Hands

Jingdezhen is China's porcelain capital. Slowly forgotten after being home to the emperor's imperial kilns for a thousand years, the city is now filling with young artists. An oasis for creatives in China's urban east, people from all over the country come to Jingdezhen to follow porcelain dreams. CITY OF HANDS profiles four young members of Jingdezhen's ceramics community, exploring what brought them to the city and what made them stay.
