Kiln God Research

The Fire God of the South Wind Region, Shiwan, Foshan, Guangdong, China

The "Fire God of the South Wind Region" guards the oldest continuously fired kiln in China. The Nanfeng (south wind) Ancient Kiln is approximately 500 years old and is located in Shiwan, Foshan, Guangdong, China. This sculpture was created by Master Mei for the Millennium Firing of the Nanfeng climbing hill kiln in 2000. Master Mei created this sculpture from his own imagination. The sculpture celebrates the southern Chinese tradition of honoring the stove God for a successful kiln firing.
