The Chinese had a long history in painting on ceramic vases. Antiques from hundreds years ago proved that the Chinese has mastered the skills in drawing patterns on uneven or curved surfaces.

During the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 - 1644), traders shipped a lot of painted Chinese porcelain to Portugal and Spain. This painting technique was then applied to Street Posts in Portugal and Spain. The Portuguese have brought this tradition back to the far east when they colonized Macau. You can still see these beautiful porcelain street posts in Portugal, Spain and Macau nowadays.
 
Today, China still nurture a lot of talented porcelain artist. It certainly requires extra talent and patience to paint on curved surfaces. Stunning - is the only word I thought of when I saw these vases.
