The Shuili Snake Kiln [水里蛇窯] was built in 1927 when master potter Lin Chiang-sung [林江松] arrived in this small town in rural Nantou County. Today visitors can create their own ceramic pieces, learn about the ceramics making process, and enjoy the works of local artists.
Above and below are images of the massive Snake Kiln. The kiln has been completely rebuilt after its destruction during the 921 Earthquake of 1999.
