Kumonoie   cloisonne / soldering

Cloisonne is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects. 

I use 85% silver solder to join pieces of fine silver together. I then draw decoration by soldering or sticking silver wires on my pieces. After that I draw and fill the cells with enamel powder guided by my imagination and then the piece is fired in a kiln.

この小さな作品は純銀のパーツを1.5分ロウでロー付けし、その上に有線七宝が施されています。そして純銀のリボン線で絵を描くように胎に乗せ、その模様の中に釉薬を詰めて何度も窯で焼きます。リボン線や釉薬は、私にとって鉛筆や絵の具以上に、自由に私の心を表現できるツールなのです。
