Cloisonné is the art of applying enamels of all colors to the surface of a metal object, which is then fired to become a beautiful work of art.

This technique reached its perfection as a result of the efforts of Chinese artisans. Chinese cloisonné is now the standard by which the quality and beauty of cloisonné is measured worldwide. Cloisonné ranks as one of China's major contributions to the world's fine arts.
