Minakari is the art of colouring and ornamenting the surface of copper by fusing brilliant colours that are decorated in intricate designs. Usually, copper is chosen and shaped by an expert coppersmith.
The patterns of Iranian enamel work are traditional designs depending on the taste of the artist. It is then outlined by the engraver to make the enamel adhere firmly to the metal.
Enameller brushes the ornament on the engraved design with special colours called Mina in azure, red, green, yellow, blue etc. A single piece of Mina passes through many bands before it reaches completion.
The body is covered with a white glaze using the dipping technique & heated at a maximum temperature of 750°C. The body is recoated with a higher quality glaze & reheated 3 to 4 times.
Enamel working and baked-coating are one of the distinguished courses of art in Isfahan.
