In the history of jewelry, enamels have been used as a substitute for colored gemstones. From ancient times until recently, the vitreous surface and the many colors obtained with enamels have offered to goldsmiths and artists a wonderful palette. From the archaeological findings in the Mediterranean regions to Byzantine treasures in Constantinople, from Limoges in France to China, enameled artefacts showcased how craftsmanship traveled and developed around the world, as a very global art form. Let’s discover it together!

Speakers:
Mathilde Rondouin, Art Historian, Specialist in Decorative Arts, teacher at L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts

Bonnie Lau, Art adviser, specialist in Chinese classical furniture, Director of Hon Ming Gallery
