Mina-Kari Home Decor

Minakari is a method of decorating objects with enamel (mina). An art and a craft, it’s one of the main and most iconic forms of Persian handicrafts. Minakari is typically done on pottery and porcelain, as well as on metals such as gold, copper, silver, aluminum, steel, brass, and bronze.

To make a work of minakari, first, a metal is selected as the main material, and then formed into the desired shape and sized by a metalworker. This is followed by a minakari craftsperson (minakari) coating the object evenly with a white glaze. The glazed metal object is later decorated with hand-drawn floral and abstract patterns, before being fired in a kiln. Finally, when removed from the kiln, the object is coated with a higher-quality glaze and fired a second time.

Copper and brass are the most popular metals for minakari because they require multiple glazing, which strengthens them considerably. Durability, formability, malleability, and the ability to be rolled into sheets are some of the properties of copper, which make it a great choice for minakari. Copper and brass can also be washed with cleaning agents without getting damaged and their capacity to absorb glaze is greater than other metals, which is another advantage that makes them preferable.
