Artisans have been decorating porcelain for centuries.

 

Pigments, texture products, lustres and various precious metals can be applied to 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 china painting produces enduring works ready to become the collectable art of tomorrow.
