Hand forging copper cookware at Guangzhou's Baohui Copper Workshop

Our red copper wok is handcrafted by Baohui Copper Workshop in the Haizhu District of Guangzhou. More than one thousand strokes of the hammer are required to achieve the uniform texture and thinness for conducting high heat evenly throughout the wok.

Three generations from the Liang family currently work at the Baohui Copper Workshop.


There is concern that the next generation may not be willing to continue the family craft as forging copper is difficult work.
