Since the beginning of the TANG DYNASTY early in the 7th Century, the Intricate Art of Cloisonne enamel-on-metal work has been practiced by dedicated Chinese Craftsmen. Using traditional design, contemporary artists create Cloisonn?hat rivals centuries old collectors pieces. Working on Copper Eggs in classic Chinese shapes, artists carefully outline the pattern in small cells made of fine strips of copper. Each cell painstaking filled with the proper shade of enamel using a delicate writing brush, then the piece is baked causing the enamel to contract. The process is repeated several times until each cell is filled with translucent, colored enamel. Finally, the piece is polished and each cell is outlined in gold. Each egg rests on a traditional hand-carved lacquered rosewood stand.
