Yan Fuyou, 65-years old, makes clay vases at his pottery studio in the suburb of Yizhou, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region on August 4, 2013. He began his career as a pottery apprentice at the age of 14, and has since mastered the skill of hand-made pottery. The pottery craft has come under risk of disintegrating as the small industry has been faced with low efficiency problems and weak profit margins.[Photo/Xinhua]
