About this Event
Grind colored enamel pigments into a powder resembling talcum powder, mix it with water, and accurately apply the ground enamel filler onto a prepared fine silver surface. After air drying, the coated enamel surface is placed in a kiln and fired at a high temperature of 850°C. The enamel pigments will melt, forming a completely new and durable surface that fuses with the metal base.
Chinese enamel art has a rich history dating back to the Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368), although it reached its zenith during the Ming (1368–1644) and Qing (1644–1912) dynasties. During these periods, it was highly sought after and used to create decorative pieces, religious artifacts, and imperial objects.
