Closionne Factory

I had no idea about what an intricate and complex process it takes to make closionne. They make the metal pots and then they take metal strips and glue them on into the design that they want.

They then fill it in with enamel of different colors- they need a fair amount to fill in the top of the metal strips

The pots are fired 3 times total in kilns like this.

And the result are beautiful pieces like this
