GRAN­U­LA­TION

24-7 (Singapore) - - D For .... Decorative Art -

Dat­ing back to the third mil­len­nium BC, the gran­u­la­tion tech­nique was pi­o­neered by an­cient Greeks and Etr­uscans. The process in­volves cre­at­ing tiny balls from threads of gold, which are cut and heated over a flame. The tiny grains of gold are then painstak­ingly pieced to­gether to cre­ate a mo­tif. This year, Cartier re­vives the an­cient art in the Ro­tonde de Cartier Gran­u­la­tion Pan­ther from the Cartier d’Art col­lec­tion, which de­picts the brand’s fa­mous fe­line mas­cot on the dial.
