Artisans have been decorating porcelain for centuries.
To complete a design pigments, texture products, lustres and various precious metals can be applied to white porcelain, the china painter's canvas. After each application 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 china painting produces enduring works ready to become the collectable art of tomorrow.
The aim of this website is to provide current news, events and topics of interest for china painters and all who appreciate the art, especially painters from the West Australia region.
To view recent work see the Main Gallery page. From the Main Gallery you can link to additional galleries which feature work arranged by subject (see below).
A new Guest Artist page has been added to the Galleries area. It features china painting by some of Western Australia's best artists.
