Tile time

MAR 23, 2016

Traditional patterns from imperial wares of the Qianlong Emperor’s reign have inspired Lala Curio’s Cloisonné Tile collection. The ancient artform saw metal-wired cloisons filled with vibrant enamels that were fired multiple times and then burnished and gilded in gold outlines. These intricate techniques are applied to home furnishings, lacquer boxes, leather trays and furniture, as well as tiles, each one of which is created by skilled masters who strive to keep their authentic craftsmanship intact and relevant. Join the cloisonné revival.
