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 up to 850°C. At this temperature the glaze melts sufficiently to absorb the paint leaving pieces that are both durable and permanent.leaf motive

 

Kiln-fired china painting produces enduring works, ready to become the collectable art of tomorrow!
