History of Georgian Enamel
The raising and development of one of the oldest and popular branches of art - the cloisonne enamel dates back to the middle ages in Georgia. For a long period of time, it had served to the demands of the church. The secrets of the cloisonne enamel technology were lost in the 15th century. Only in the 40s of the past century it was exercised again by few artists.
By the end of the 20th century, secular art appears next to the traditional and Christian one. It defined new values and gave birth to the new wave of creativity.
The cloisonne enamel has become the most popular since the 90s of the 20th century. It was shown at the group and personal exhibitions; special workshops were created. Since 2000 the enamel artists have been participating in international exhibitions and art-contests. Their Works have been numerously awarded with honor (Barcelona, Tokio, Baltimore, Morez).
Two international bienales - “the New Wave” - that were conducted by the “Sharden” gallery in Tbilisi in 2004 and 2006, represented a significant phase in the development and the integration of the cloisonne enamel into the world culturula sphere. Many enamel artists from different parts of the world participated in biennales.
