Invented in 9th century China, coveted in 17th century Europe, treasured in 19th century America, and neglected by art schools for over 100 years, china painting is poised for a revival with new materials, new forms and new imagery. China paint - fired at the lowest end of the ceramic range - offers consistent, durable, predictable color, from the brightest hues to the subtlest gradations. Any effect that paint or ink can achieve, china paint can duplicate. For the ceramic artist interested in exploring this robust medium to the lifelong china painter, China Paint & Overglaze.

On October 14 Paul will present a China painting demonstration on porcelain tiles in the pottery studio of Antoinette Badenhorst in Saltillo Mississippi. His excellent skills as artist will be recorded and presented in an online workshop early 2018. Here are some of his paintings on tiles.

I started painting in oils when I was eight, and sold my first painting when I was ten. I never wanted to be anything other than an artist. In college, I got seduced by clay and glazes, and made my living as a potter for 22 years. Since 1986, I’ve worked exclusively on ceramic tile and have done well over 1000 tile commissions. Recently I’ve started painting again, this time in acrylic. It’s like being a kid again, and I’m painting the same things I was painting as a kid- landscapes and wildlife.

China painting, or porcelain painting, is the decoration of glazed porcelain objects such as plates, bowls, vases or statues

China painting, or porcelain painting, is the decoration of glazed porcelain objects such as plates, bowls, vases or statues. The body of the object may be hard-paste porcelain, developed in China in the 7th or 8th century, or soft-paste porcelain (often bone china), developed in 18th-century Europe. The broader term ceramic painting includes painted decoration on lead-glazed earthenware such as creamware or tin-glazed pottery such as maiolica or faience.

Invented in 9th century China, coveted in 17th century Europe, treasured in 19th century America, and neglected by art schools for more than 100 years, china painting is poised for a revival with new materials, new forms and new imagery. China paint, fired at the lowest end of the ceramic range, offers consistent, durable, predictable color, from the brightest hues to the subtlest gradations. Any effect that paint or ink can achieve, china paint can duplicate. For the ceramic artist interested in exploring this robust medium to the lifelong china painter, China Paint & Overglaze is the essential text. This groundbreaking book is the first to showcase the work of traditional china painters, contemporary potters and clay sculptors together and includes many unique features on every aspect of an exciting and colorful medium. From the Preface to China Paint & Overglaze I came to china painting from the world of studio ceramics, but I was a painter first. I started painting with oils when I was eight, and sold my first painting at ten. Throwing on the wheel seduced me away from painting, but not for long. My pots soon became as much about painting as pottery could be. When I quit throwing to concentrate on tile murals in 1986, china paint attracted me with its brilliant color, fine detail, and quick firings. I have never had any lessons in china painting, so I have always done a lot of things wrong, especially in my commitment to water-soluble mediums. In writing this book, I have tried to cover the traditional methods and materials completely, while also detailing how I do things more unconventionally. I don't pretend to be an expert in the use of the more esoteric overglaze techniques, but I hope I've covered the basics well enough to get you started. I also hope I've encouraged artists to try overglazing and china painting in new ways. I believe the question should never be, Will this work? but rather, How can I make this work? Those readers who are used to decorating with underglazes and glazes will need to embrace several new concepts to use china paints effectively. Once you get these, the medium becomes a real treat to use. First, think of it as paint, not as glaze. Any effect you can achieve with any form of paint (oil, water, acrylic, or latex), or any kind of ink, you can achieve with china paint. You can have any shade, hue, or tone you desire, and you can tell before it's fired exactly what color it's going to be, with very few exceptions. Second, it doesn't have to be finished in one firing. Many effects can only be developed slowly. There's no limit to how many times you can refire a china-painted piece. This medium, and this book, is based on the concept that the glaze firing is only an intermediate step in the creative process. Third, you can wipe it off as easily as you can put it on. Once you get used to painting on a hard, slick surface, you'll find you can do things you can't do with any other medium. This book differs from most books on china painting in that there are no studies to copy, and no lessons on color theory or design. I don't intend to tell anyone how or what to paint. What I have included, in as great a depth as I can manage, is a comprehensive telling of overglazing's long and fascinating history, and a serious study of the ceramic chemistry, with particular emphasis on color development and safety/durability issues. The medium is ripe for another renaissance. It needs the raucous energy and freewheeling experimentation of the typical studio clay artist combined with the discipline, control, and technical mastery of the typical china painter. It needs new imagery, applied to new forms, with new techniques and materials.Paul Lewing, Author of China Paint & Overglaze
  • ALAN
You better know HOW to use china paint before you buy this, not very good as an instructional guide. More of a coffee table book in my opinion. Nice pictures, but not much else.
  • Meztihn
Buying this wonderful book by Paul Lewing at a reasonable price is very exciting. As a porcelain/china painter, I am sometimes confused by the instructions of different teachers, but "China Paint and Overglaze" covers everything. I immediately read it from cover to cover, and will use it as my primary resource.

I saw this book elsewhere for lots more money. I am a China painter extraordinaire and potter and had to have the publication. It is a new book at a terrific rate and shipped promptly.
  • Ielonere
Great book. I recommend it to anyone doing china painting. New techniques, artists, and very easy to read sections you need not whole book. It is a book I will use for years as a references and inspiration.

Amazing book reseña on paint porcelain
  • Ynonno
This book exceeded my expectations! Worth ever penny I paid.
  • Foginn
I wanted to learn about the history and techniques of china painting, without instructions on how to paint flowers, etc. This was the right book to buy; it was pricey, but better than getting three books in order to get the information I needed. It has great photos, and he has a real reverence and respect for this vital but overlooked genre.
Paul REALLY knows his stuff. This is a great book covering so much territory, it's a mini history of an area of ceramics that has not been addressed in such a contemporary way. After years of research and work, he has created benchmark and a major reference, an example for others to use in this kind of research. It's a great resource not only for potters, but historians, china painters, antique dealers and collectors.

This is a luscious book and a generous one. Paul Lewing has written a very readable, comfortable narrative and the book is visually stunning. A huge amount of information is packed between the covers. He holds nothing back, giving everything he knows and he knows a lot. He not only is tackles the subject full-on from the origins and progression of china decoration through time and cultures, there's a complete data dump of technical aspects; tools, chemistry and technique.

The book is printed on heavy-duty slick (magazine-like) pages and is filled with beautiful color photographs. Makes ya want to run, RUN to your studio and start working! You may need two copies. One to keep pristine in your house and one to paw over in the studio!
