    Lawrence K. Wang and Mu-Hao Sung Wang (2023). Chinese cloisonné : artistic enamelware for east-west culture exchange through land and sea silk roads. In: "Evolutionary Progress in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics", Lawrence K. Wang and Hung-ping Tsao (editors).

ABSTRACT: Chinese cloisonné is beautiful enamelware produced with the combined human knowledge of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). It decorates our humanity connected by the Silk Roads. The cloisonné technology originated in the West (Middle East and Europe) and spread to the East (China) during China’s Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). Then Chinese craftsmen perfected it in their Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). Chinese cloisonné are still made and highly valued today, and have become the standard by which to measure the quality and appraise the beauty of cloisonné world-wide. This STEAM product ranks as one of China’s major contributions to the world’s fine arts. Both the Republic of China (ROC; 1912-present) and the People’s Republic of China (PRC; 1949-present) inherit the same Chinese culture including the cloisonné technology. PRC just held its third Belt and Road Forum (BRF) in Beijing, October 17-18, 2023. PRC President Xi Jinping gave Chinese cloisonné as a State Guest Gift to the 130 foreign leaders who attended the BRF. This publication reviews the historical and technological developments of Chinese cloisonné and introduces the technical information from both the PRC China Highlights in Beijing, and the ROC Government Information Office in Taipei.
