In this style of polychrome porcelain, transparent enamel glazes are painted with raised clay outlines on the white clay body in the same way as enamel pastes are put into the cells, or cloisons, of the metal-based cloisonné. The shimmering shades of cobalt-blue and turquoise lend themselves to refreshing aquatic scenes which are frequently the subject of fahua decor.
