Cloisonne Urns

Cloisonne is the art of applying enamel of all colors to the surface of a copper or bronze object, which is then fired to become a bright and colorful work of art. This technique reached its perfection as a result of the efforts of Chinese artisans. Chinese cloisonne there upon became the standard by which to measure the quality and appraise the beauty of cloisonne world wide. This ranks as one of China's major contributions to the world's fine arts.

Stage 1:
The meticulous process begins with a gentle hamering to shape an unbreakable solid brass core.

Stage 2:
Then an intricate design is formed using a precise copper wire netting.

Stage 3:
Next, chosen colours of enamel are bonded to the core and fired in the kiln. The fire process hardens the finish and smooths the finish to the core.

Stage 4:
This step is repeated several times to enhance the beauty and durability of the design. The hand laid enamel is unique to each urn.

Stage 5:The urn is then gently hand-scored and polished for a smooth surface further exposing the fine copper / bronze wire accentuating the overall appearance.

Stage 6:
Lastly, the urn is gilded to protect the brass from rust, as well as to create a lasting and bright shining finish. These urns are all individually unique and of fine quality.
