Asian Cloisonné is an ancient enameling technique that uses small metal wires and colorful enamels to produce unique artwork. Many coats of glass enamel are applied in raised cells to create designs. Then, the object is fired, and polished. The metal wire is sometimes replaced by gold, brass, silver, or copper strips. This technique is mostly used in the production of asian jewelry, chinese vases, abstract pottery, and dishes.
