Cloisonné Navy Blue Enamel Turtle on wooden stand
Cute small navy blue / multi-coloured turtle with wooded stand made using the Cloisonné enamel technique

Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects, in recent centuries using vitreous enamel.
The decoration is formed by first adding compartments (cloisons in French) to the metal object by soldering or adhering silver or gold wires or thin strips placed on their edges. These remain visible in the finished piece, separating the different compartments of the enamel or inlays, which are often of several colors. Cloisonné enamel objects are worked on with enamel powder made into a paste, which then needs to be fired in a kiln.
