This Special Talk is the first attempt to introduce Korean Cloisonne, to the United States and experience feedback from the American people.

Cloisonne refers to an ancient metalworking technique and is a multi-step enamel process used to produce jewelry, vases, and other decorative items. Korean artisans developed unique styles and designs which distinguish it from the Cloisonne of other Asian countries.
