Painted in Peng Chau

坪洲曾是一個繁盛的工業小島。在60至70年代,島上建有東南亞最大的火柴廠以及林林種種的工廠包括木器、船塢、皮革等, 不少的輕工業如燈泡製造、籐織、手工藝也非常蓬勃。全盛時期林超先生的超記瓷器廠聘有30多工人都以手繪花碗為生。 Peng Chau Island was once a thriving industrial powerhouse. In the 60s and 70s, the largest factory in Southeast Asia for making matches began to establish in the northwestern coast of this small island. Other large-scale factories included teak furniture, shipyards,tanneries, etc. Light industry also flourished such as light bulb factories, cane-weaving industry, and many other types of handcrafts. During the heyday, Chiu Kee (超記) Porcelain Factory had 30 craftsmen including Master Lam Chiu who used his porcelain painting skills to feed his whole family. 20140611_PCFBimage Video: http://vimeo.com/93402385
