Enamelware, Enamel kitchenware

Enameling has said to have been around for centuries, pieces of enameled pottery and metal that have been dated back to ancient Greek times have been excavated and are now in museums. Enamel (or vitreous enamel) is the result of the fusion of powdered glass to an object through the process of firing, usually between 750 and 850 degrees Celsius.

The powder melts and flows to harden as a smooth, durable vitreous coating on metal, glass or ceramic. It is often applied in a paste form and may be transparent or opaque when fired. Vitreous enamel can be applied to most metals. Enamel is said to be a very popular material to use on jewelry such as charm bracelets and necklaces. Chinese enamelware includes several different ornaments because of its high quality design.

Enamel has also gained popularity on urns and vases in the form of cloisonne. Cloisonne is a developed form of art that was apparently started in one country and finished in another, the Chinese were the ones who claimed to develop the "perfect" form of cloisonne.

Kitchenware also falls under the category of enamelware, enamel was used in coating kitchenware because of its high tolerance to heat and because it could be applied to many metals which were useful in cooking such as iron.

Decorating Enamelware:
