Firing these pieces was a multiple-step process since the enamel shrunk and had to be filled in after each firing.

Concurrently, artisans devised a hybrid of porcelain and cloisonné called fahua.

Thin lines of ceramic slip were drawn on the body of the porcelain vases to create the cloisons.

Which were then filled in with enamel.

Later, enamel was used like a glaze on vases to produce what are called overglaze enameled porcelain.

Painted porcelain began to be classified by its colour palette. During the Qing dynasty 1644-1911

Famille verte green and iron red dominate.
Famille jaune yellow ground famille noire black ground and famille rose mostly pink and purple.

Around the same time, cloisonné enamel was used to decorate porcelain vases with chrysanthemum, lotus, peony, and rose flowers.

Meanwhile, in Japan, 17th-century ceramists were developing overglaze-enamel techniques of their own.

Producing Imari porcelain, created vases with a blue underglaze topped with overglazes of rusty orange and bright gold.

Later, in the 19th century, gilded Satsuma vases were widely exported to the West.

But not all Japanese vases were so garishly glazed.

For example, Hirado vases were left bone white, with modest blue designs painted on their surfaces.

Dragons or chrysanthemum petals applied to their bases and necks in dramatic relief.
