The patterns of Iranian plates are made with enamel work, which 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 plate passes through many hands 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.
