〈你試過真的拿一個煲去箍嗎?徵集💭 你的「箍煲」記憶🙋🏼‍♀🙋🏻‍♂ 💭Share your unique experience of repairing a clay pot NOW🙋

我們說的「箍煲」並不是挽救一段即將破裂的愛情🙅🏻‍♂️🙅🏼‍♀️,而是真的用鐵線將有裂紋的砂煲箍住,延長它的壽命!曾幾何時,差不多每個家庭🏠都有一個即使有裂痕都不捨得丟掉的珍貴砂煲,而這些砂煲亦是香港青山龍窯🐉以前生產的其中一種產品!


關注組正在籌備推出一本關於香港青山龍窯及其出產陶器的書📖,因此我們正在收集一些大家使用砂煲的習慣和心得💡。


我們很想知道~~ 💭以前要把砂煲拿到哪兒「箍煲」呢? 💭使用一個新煲之前,要如何「開煲」? 💭一個砂煲可以用多久?


如果你或家裏的長輩都有這些經歷,立即留言或inbox我們,分享屬於你的「箍煲」記憶!分享這徵集帖文,助我們一起收集「箍煲」記憶!🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏼‍♀️


In spoken Cantonese, "cool bowl" (箍煲,ku1 bou1) is a colloquial way of saying “save a broken relationship💔,” but its literal meaning is describing the Chinese tradition to “repair a pot with a metal wire” 🔧. In the old days, almost every home 🏠 had a clay pot that was so treasured, people would try to repair it even if it was cracked. And these clay pots were just one of the products made at the Castle Peak Dragon Kiln🐉.


Our Concern Group is now working on a book📖 about the Dragon Kiln and the ceramics products fired there over the years, and we are collecting stories about how these clay pots were used. Have you got an old story about these clay pots to share with us?💡


💭Where did you bring your pots to “repair with a metal wire”? 💭Are there ways to treat or prepare a new pot before using it? 💭How long did your family use your clay pot?
