About the artwork:

The artwork you are purchasing is called Mina with a rich old history of around 5000 years. Mina means blue in ancient Persian language and the blue colour in this artwork is a symbol of heaven’s sky. Although blue is the traditional colour in this art however, the contemporary Mina handcrafts could be found in a variety of colours these days such as green, grey, pink and etc.

Mina indeed is the art of painting and colouring on the surface of metal objects. The paint used in this artwork in most cases is prepared by metal oxide powders.  Such metal powder, however, is mixed with special oils and solvents to form a creamy paint. The cream is then used to paint the object. Different metal oxide also produces a different colour.

Besides the preparation of paint cream, the desired objects which are mainly made of copper are created by hammering and forming. These objects have a long list of shapes including vases, plates, containers and etc. After forming the objects they should be cleaned thoroughly prior to being covered with white enamel coating. The cleanness of the surface is very important at this stage since very minor dirt or even hand oil or moisture could cause a crack in the final product. The enamelled object then is baked in the furnace at around 700° in a few stages.

Once the object is baked and cooled down, the already unique designed pattern of each item is transferred to the object’s surface.  This is usually done by drawing on the paper first and punching small holes near to each other on the lines drawn on the paper. Graphite powder is usually used to mark on the metal surface through paper tiny holes. The white-coated copper object with marked lines then is painted carefully and artistically by hand. This stage is almost the most important part of the artwork and indeed the spirit of the Mina. The artist spends lots of time to handle the details of the painting trying to make it unique, modern and beautiful.

The final object is again needed to be baked in the furnace for stabilizing the colour at around 800°. As a result of using metal-based paints and baking procedure, the Mina colour is stable, washable and anti-scratch.


Minakari cake stand is a decorative and functional piece that is used to display cakes, pastries, and other desserts. The stand is made using a traditional Persian technique called Minakari, which involves hand-painting enamel designs on metal.

The Minakari cake stand is typically 16cm in diameter, which makes it suitable for small to medium-sized cakes. It is made of high-quality metal, such as brass or copper, which is then coated with enamel and baked at high temperatures to create a durable and long-lasting finish.

The intricate designs on the cake stand are usually inspired by traditional Persian patterns and motifs, such as floral designs and geometric shapes. The vibrant colors used in the enamel paint create a striking contrast against the metallic finish of the stand, making it an eye-catching piece on any table.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the Minakari cake stand is also functional, with a sturdy base that can hold a cake or other desserts securely. It can be used for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, and other celebrations, or as a decorative piece for your home.

Overall, the Minakari cake stand is a beautiful and practical addition to any table setting, providing both function and style.
