HIMA/CICE – Ceramica smaltata (Ehyaeei)

International craftsmanship
Teheran, Iran

Glazed ceramic (Ehyaeei) is a working technique obtained from the use of copper oxide and silver nitrate on clay objects. During the baking phase, by adding a smoked substance such as wood, grease or similar materials, a chemical reaction gives a dark red brick colour to ceramic and terracotta elements, as well as a metallic appearance, such as copper. The oven produces carbon monoxide which, due to its volatility, is quickly combined with the oxygen in the copper oxide, maintaining this special aesthetic quality.

Arman Rakhsh Ghazal – HIMA (Hima Handicraft Holding) is the institution representing Iranian traditional arts and crafts in co-operation with CICE – Centro Italo Iraniano di Cooperazione Culturale ed Economica (Italian-Iranian Centre of Cultural and Economic Co-Operation), supporting and enhancing local artisans operating in the various product categories.
