Have you ever wondered how these beautiful cloisonne vases are made?
Cloisons in French means Compartments. Starting with a metal base (usually copper nowadays, but could also be silver or gold), cloisons are added by soldering metal strips onto the surface to form various patterns. Colorful enamel paints (in powder or paste) are applied within these compartments, and then fired in a kiln. Cloisonne started from ancient Europe, and spread to China in 14th century.
Cloisonne vases in various shapes, sizes, and patterns. All come with a wooden base.
Some cloisonnes have a transparent look, look this bowl above. They look very beautiful under the light.
