Description
Cloisonné was developed thousands of years ago during the Byzantine era and traveled via the Silk Road to China, where it has flourished as an art form ever since. To create a design in cloisonné, an artist's original sketch must be traced using thin strips of wire. Into this wire "scaffolding" is inserted powdered enamel that, when baked, fills the outlines and creates a porcelain-like appearance. Here cloisonné is used to create a set of miniature teapot ornaments, a nod to China’s long history as a tea-drinking culture. According to legend, the drink was accidentally discovered there in the third century B.C. when a tea leaf fell into Emperor Shennong’s water. Handmade in Beijing, China. Each is 2 1/4"W x 1 1/4"H.
