Copper utensils are ubiquitous in Tibetan-inhabited areas, especially Tibet, but where are these copperwares from and who make them? The answer lies in Heqing, a county in the north of Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province.

Xiuyi, a Bai ethnic village surrounded by farmlands in Heqing, is where many family copper-craft workshops have worked for generations. People normally make it a match to Xinhua Village or “the Town of Silver, the Town of River” which is home to many prestigious silversmiths like Cun Fabiao--the designer of Jiulonghu (Nine-dragon Pot) silvery wine set.
