David Lee’s process includes pencil drawing a design; cutting a fine silver sheet, and shaping and polishing it by hand; handwiring pictures with 24-karat yellow gold cloisonné wires; handpainting pictures on the fine silver base with enamels and minerals; and, lastly firing in a kiln between 1350°F and 1520°F, depending on each color’s temperature requirement. David puts three layers for each color and fires his work up to three times. The layers make colors gradually, vividly changing from dark to light, giving David’s artwork an in-depth dimension.
