China painting, or porcelain painting, is the decoration of glazed porcelain objects such as plates, bowls, vases, etc. The art of china painting is a very old art and over the years the quality of the porcelain, the design and decoration has become extremely refined. More recently interest has revived in china painting, or porcelain painting as a fine art form.

Dating back to ancient China, porcelain painting remains a popular symbol of beauty and power. An art without frontiers! The careful balancing of mixtures and pigments, the difficulty of application and individual skill that go into the creation of each piece contributes to making Art on Porcelain one of the most diverse, gorgeous and desired art forms of all time.

Today, Art On Porcelain is as various and eclectic as the many artists who discover it as a medium for creating aesthetic pieces.
