* Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metal objects. Fine metal wires are attached to the surface to form the design. These wits remain visible in the finished piece. Within the compartments formed by the wires colored enamel is hand applied. The decorated piece is then fired in a kiln and the enamel takes on a glass-like texture. The piece is then ground smooth using the same type of equipment used to polish fine gemstones.
