Marco Polo brought porcelain objects back from his historic travels in China but it was not until 1708 that the technique of porcelain painting was discovered in Europe. Mary Belle Cordell teaches this unique art at the Boca Museum the Art School.
Luminous translucent oil based paints are used and fired at 1400 degrees in a kiln to produce each fine art piece of porcelain.
