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.
