Meeting point

About the host, "San-He Tile Kiln"

Located in the Dashu, Kaohsiung, San-He Tile Kiln played a significant role in the building industry back in the days. It started in 1918, during the Japanese colonial period. When modern technology advance as time passes, the usage of the traditional tiles in architectural constructions abruptly decreases. Especially during the 60’s, the industry almost come to an end when factories closed down one by one, when San-He and Zhuzailiao were the only ones left standing. In the year 2011, we decided to set up a cultural creative team in promoting the traditional craftsmanship. Combining with the concept of modern society art, ideas, way of living, new pieces of artwork were created with the same old methods like coasters, plates, card holders, lamps and even action figures. It open many paths for the almost lost art, now our gruop is trying to combine leisure, industry, culture and education to brighten and pass down the torch.
