Craftsman Guo Wenjiang checks a Qingsha pot at a workshop in Yuxian county, North China's Hebei province, Feb 26, 2012. Qingshaqi, or green clay utensils, are traditional handicraft products with more than 300 years' history. The utensils are made of Gantu, a kind of local soil, and have been used in palaces since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). With a flat economic outlook and a weakening market, few workshops are making Qingshaqi products these days. (Xinhua/Cao Quanyi)
