Artisans have been decorating porcelain for centuries.


Pigments, various texture products, lustres and precious metals can be applied to plain white porcelain, the china painter's canvas, to complete a design. After each application of paint etc. the piece is kiln fired at up to 850°C. At this temperature the glaze melts sufficiently to absorb the paint leaving pieces that are both durable and permanent.


Kiln-fired painting produces enduring works of art ready to become the collectables of tomorrow.
