Learn the art of cloisonné enameling as we take you through this ancient technique that is still bursting with vibrant beauty by the hands of makers today.
Cloisonné means cloister or cell, and is identifiable by the wires used to separate areas of enamel. These wire designs create areas to fill in with crisp opaque or deep translucent color. This fundamental enameling technique creates jewel-like colors that are stunning to behold.
