What Does Decorative Art Include?

The definition and category of decorative art includes the creation of furniture and accessory furnishings, rugs and carpets, tapestry, embroidery, book illustration, floral decorations, ceramic pottery (earthenware, stoneware, porcelain and raku), basketry, goldsmithing, enamelwork, silverware, and jewellery art and mosaic art, as well as stained glass and interior design work.
