Shaun Greenhalgh recreates a beautiful Cloisonné enamel, Anglo-Saxon Disc Brooch.
Shaun Greenhalgh “The Cloisonné enamel technique is a very old technique, practised by the Romans, and the Celts even, before them. It’s just powdered glass, ground up, and mixed in with water and just fired in the kiln.
All Islamic mosques are modelled on the courtyard of the Prophet’s own house in Medina.
The shelters in his courtyard were also used as somewhere to meet and discuss community affairs. And that marvellous communal atmosphere of a space with many purposes is something else that survives to this day in the Islamic mosque.
