Known in the Mandarin language as â€œNe'Qwa," the artistic tradition of reverse painting on the inside of mouth-blown glass flourished during the 17th century, when snuff bottles were valued fashion accessories in China
According to Ne'Qwa Art's co-founder and head designer Jim Sexton, â€œToday there are only a few artist groups, living in remote villages throughout China, who possess the skill to create Ne'Qwa Art's contemporary art objects. By bringing together the popular artwork of internationally known artists with the centuries-old skill of Chinese artisans, Ne'Qwa Art is committed to reviving this ancient art form."
