Pingtang county in Guizhou province — home of China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope — also made a name for itself with traditional Yazhou pottery.

Yazhou pottery was produced in Xingtao village in Pingtang's Yazhou town. Historical records show that it was brought from Jiangxi province more than 600 years ago.

Yazhou pottery-making technique was added to the national intangible cultural heritage list in 2018. It has also been listed as one of the top 10 ancient pottery styles in China.
