話說屯門青山有條沉睡多年的龍窯,曾經由梁森一家人經營多年,構成其身軀的窯磚,便是窯火所烘成。梁氏的工合陶窯製品散落香港,不顯眼如水渠,日常如砂煲,家傳戶曉如五加皮酒樽,親切如錢罌,精緻如屋簷瓦片、石灣公仔,甚至盛載先人骨骸的金塔,都曾由匣鉢罩住,送入龍窯而煉成。工合陶窯結業後,龍窯內歛而深邃的火許久沒有燒起過,但這些器物,仍然迤邐着牠的餘温,而《器說龍窯》這本書,便是代它們將故事說出來,願餘燼化為星火。也在此感謝衞奕信勳爵文物信託和信言設計大使的支持,讓這本書可以面世。

廣東話主講

Eighty years ago, Tuen Mun was known as Castle Peak. Once the centre of Hong Kong’s flourishing pottery industry, little evidence now remains, except for the Castle Peak Dragon Kiln. The only intact kiln of its kind to remain in Hong Kong, the structure has been preserved as a Grade III historic building. From the 1940s to early 1980s, the kiln produced numerous household items — from penny banks and clay pots to drainage pipes and wine jars. Objects of the Dragon Kiln retells the site’s story through an examination of nine cherished objects that were produced at the kiln. Authored by Hong Kong Dragon Kiln Concern Group, a non-profit organization gathering professionals from conservation, education, arts and cultural sectors, as well as the ceramic field including potters, ceramic artists, and art educators.
