A new video series produced by the Wenzhou Overseas Media Center showcases the lives and career experiences of 10 entrepreneurs in Rui'an, a county-level city administered by Wenzhou.

The video series echoes the guiding principles of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

This is the second episode in the series, in which Chen Lu, a cultural promoter, visits the Hanchen Pottery and Porcelain Studio in Taoshan town, Rui'an to explore the time-honored Ou Kiln and the porcelain culture behind it. The studio is owned by Lou Linfeng, an inheritor of Ou porcelain craftsmanship.

Ou Kiln is an ancient porcelain kiln that was popular in Wenzhou from the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220) to the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
