4. Art: Shippo Town Cloisonné Enamel Ware Art Village

The Cloisonne Enamel Ware Art Village was established in 2004 to further enlighten people from the world about cloisonné enamel ware as regional special products.
Here, visitor can learn all about cloisonné, from its history and masterpieces of “Owari Shippo,” or watch an artisan at work, or make your own Shippo arts. Or you can find your special gifts from Greater Nagoya region.

A major characteristic of Owari cloisonné enamel ware is the insertion of an edge line. A flat silver wire outlines the pattern edges, clearly dividing the design boundary. Some older pieces are so detailed that it doesn’t seem possible to have been done by hand. This is a hidden good spot to find Greater Nagoya tradition, and such fine work has astonished Western visitors.
