Cloisonné Jewelry Artist, Don Viehman works with enamels at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria Virginia Creating cloisonné pieces began as an occupational experiment and an ever widening lifetime involvement when I initially joined with two other artists in 1979 in California to form "The Cloisonne Collection". We combined our working efforts cooperatively to learn enameling and jewelry metalwork, to create contemporary cloisonné art jewelry pieces, and to express our personal visions. Though the partnership did not last long, cloisonné became my life's profession. Over the following years, I worked to become a fulltime craftsman, exhibiting at art and craft shows and through craft galleries. I could move my studio wherever I lived. Eventually in 2005, I obtained a studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA, where my work and workspace are on exhibit today.
