Lineage was born under a Vancouver transplant’s feeling of homesickness.
How it started
Our great grand uncle Chen immigrated to Hong Kong, first worked as a longshoreman at the port and opened the family’s first ever ceramics shop after a decade of savings in Hong Kong, importing ceramics from his families and friends in Teochew.
After WWII, grandpa Ki-Kwang Wu started working as a ceramics worker in Teochew as part of the Public-Private Partnership program for economy recovery. However, the new policy caused the family to lose tie with its Hong Kong families, while the ceramics making practice continued.
Expansion, growth, and hope.
Father Pei-Ho Wu started his own ceramics studio in Teochew under grandpa Wu’s support, exporting ceramic tableware to our Hong Kong families and to US & UK.
And the journey continues.
Shuobi Wu launched his own ceramic tableware business in Vancouver, Canada, with supports from his father’s studio. The family is still continuing on its adventure!
