Workers make ceramic vases at a factory in Chenlu town of Tongchuan City, northwest China's Shaanxi Province, June 25, 2010. With many kiln sites, Chenlu, an ancient ceramic town, is approximately 20 kilometers southeast of downtown Tongchuan in the mountainous area of Shaanxi Province. In Chinese, "Chen" means "display" and "Lu" means "oven" or "kiln". So Chenlu is a town for displaying kilns. About 1,000 years ago, the first kiln was built in the town, while now there are still some ancient kiln sites preserved and most of the residents here are engaged in ceramic business.
