HIMA/CICE – Collezione smalto (Minakari)

International craftsmanship
Teheran, Iran

Glazing spread in Iran more than anywhere else in the world and is the art of fire and copper, characterised by dark and luminous colours giving a unique aesthetic quality to this material. One of its first examples is the work of Isfahan, consisting of a design of birds and animals on a blue, green, yellow, and red flower, made during the Safavid dynasty and described in French traveller Jean Chardin’s writings.

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.
