Sherry Reed discusses the varieties of cloisonné



The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum is partnering with the SDSU Chinese Cultural Center to bring twice-monthly remote educational programming to our community via this series of talks and discussions.  This series offers unique insights into Chinese history, Chinese culture, American history and lifeways of Chinese Americans, with a particular focus on objects represented in the Museum’s permanent collection

On February 6th, Sherry Reed will present a lecture on varieties of cloisonné.  Sherry will be joined by Andy Lu, who will provide commentary.  Evelyn Lamden will also support as moderator.  A brief description follows:

Cloisonné is a decorative art form practiced since 1300 BCE. Traditionally, wires are used to divide colors on a metal substrate and to create designs and then filled with fused glass or enamel coloring. But the variations and styles are endless as you learn from this presentation and explore SDCHM collection in this art form.
