Description

The art of meenakari or ornamental painting on the metal surface is one of the oldest forms of art in ancient Persia and in modern Iran. This art was invented in the era of the Sassanid dynasty (224 – 651 years) by Iranian craftsmen.

Meenakari or enamelling is the art of colouring and ornamenting the surface of metals by fusing over it brilliant colours that are decorated in an intricate design.

The name minakari comes from the word “minou” which is translated as “sky” or the azure color of the sky. This shade prevails in painting.

The art of Minakari or Enamelling is called miniature of fire as well as the decoration of metal and tile with mina glaze.

The process of creating metal forms, painting and coating with enamel is a rather complicated process. Surprisingly, at that time the ancient Persians had such skills. For enamel, mostly silver and copper are used. The patterns of the minakari are so diverse that it is difficult to find two pieces with the same patterns. Several masters take part in the process. First the basis for painting from silver, gold or copper is prepared. It can be a vase, a plate, a jug and etc. Then the product is enameled and burned. The process is repeated for 3 times. And finally, when the object is ready, the master covers it with a painting. First, a background colour is applied, then fine patterns and the smallest details. When the painting is finished, the object is placed in the oven. The piece is then gently rubbed with a file and cleaned with a mixture of lemon and tamarind that helps highlight the lustre of each colour. The finished product is examined in detail for the detection of cracks and defects and only products with a perfectly even coating and a pattern are sold.
