I actually visited in 2016 at the recommendation of a friend. I asked what I should buy that was special but not expensive, and she sent me to Spin! I ended up ordering all sorts of items and having them shipped to me in Korea....More
The flagship store is now in a new location in the outskirts of Shanghai: Building D2 Lane 566, Hutai Branch Road. Difficult to reach (you should either take a taxi or the metro Line 7 to Dachang Zhen) the store is behind a front street...More
I was the last one in our family to actually visit Spin, but I have long been a fan. We have several of their creations in our home in Sai Gon. Recently, our housekeeper broke our Red Army cap, a really nice piece I always...More
Beautiful, modern handmade pottery. Artisan work is simple, elegant and sometimes whimsical. This is a retail store but shows like a gallery. A really fun little visit. 2 stories. Near Jingan temple so many other things to do there as well
The Spin Ceramics studio is hidden in plain sight. It is located in a nondescript building without any external sign. Only when you approach the building you can see that the name "Spin Ceramics" and the logo are etched on the glass door.
I have come to Spin Ceramics three times across three different trips; that's how amazing their ceramics are. The products are all spare, quirky and pretty reasonable priced, especially compared to their prices in the western hemisphere.
Five thumbs up!
Discovered via a Shanghai expat website, this is 3 floors of modern mostly porcelain art, all very reasonably priced. It is not the easiest place to spot as the building is set back from the Kangding/Shaanxi North Rd intersection (NW corner) with a nondescript door....More
You should make this a must stop if you are visiting or live in Shanghai. Great selections of unique ceramic pieces and all priced very reasonably.
Also they offer a variety of shipping options if you wanted to send your friends some gifts.
A wonderful store with great modern design for home and table. A little tricky to find as there is no signage so you have to rely on the street address and Google Maps. The pricing is 1/3 of what you would pay on their .com...More
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
