Our Joint Effort with Oceana SeaChange to Protect Marine Biodiversity

We believe that together can makes a difference!

Proud Sponsorship for 2018 Oceana SeaChange Event

Ocean is home to most living things on our planet and plays an essential role in the world's ecosystem. LIULI Crystal Art shares the sense of responsibility in protecting the mother nature and has been supporting Oceana, the largest ocean conservation advocacy organization, since 2013 to raise awareness in preserving marine biodiversity. In 2018 SeaChange Summer Party, we donated the artwork “Across the Nine Heavens We Leap” as a token of a shared vision in continuously creating positive impact to the society and the earth with our hearts and actions. The contour of the artwork dynamically captures the movement of water waves, as well as the determination and relentless dedication of all nine Koi fish in reaching their goals. With limited edition of only 580 pieces worldwide, the artwork was part of the auction in the Gala event.

Fish Swims in Happiness, Abundance and Success 

FISH is symbolic of a continuous flow of happiness. Together in pairs, fish figurine shares the joy of life in harmonious cycle of yin and yang, which also creates a divine balance with the surrounding environment. In Eastern cultures, the fish figurine and totem are also often given as wedding gifts as an auspicious sign of fidelity, perfect unity and partnership. Among all fish species, Koi fish is one of the most beloved symbols in China. Its origin dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), a period of time regarded as the height of the Chinese imperial era, and the emperors’ family name is Lee, which has the same pronunciation as Koi fish in Mandarin Chinese--Li-Yu. Therefore, it is believed that Koi fish brings about success, great health and wealth to life. 

Water and Waves Nurture the Strength and Energy of Life 

Water springs life. Water is adaptable and humble, yet powerful and fearless in all forms. In Eastern cultures, water symbolizes fortune; therefore, in LIULI crystal artwork creation, the contour of dynamic flow of water waves and air depicts infinite and irrepressible strength. As long as we hold on to our faith, anything is possible. One of the artworks “The Absolute”, an abstract interpretation of traditional Chinese symbol Ru-yi through ocean waves, embodies dual meanings: a message of richness and gratitude found in the lives around us, as well as best wishes and brightful hopes. The symbol of water reminds us that the Earth has been nurturing all living things since the beginning of the day and will continue for many generations to come. 

LIULI Motto: To Continuously Create Art for the Good of the Heart

With a share vision of creating that which is good for the human heart, LIULI Crystal Art not only donated artwork for SeaChange Summer Party auction and fundraising event, but was also commissioned by Oceana in 2014 and 2016 to create an award for its honorees--- Hollywood legend, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy , director of Ted and two time Emmy Award winner. We are committed to the partnership with Oceana in protecting our natural habitat, and we will continue to be a responsible world citizen.

Peonies Carry Blessings, Celebrations, and Desires of Life

Living Life in Full Bloom

The Collection: Peony Collection 

Peony is native in China. Because of its rich color, delightful fragrance, elegant posture, and vigorous full bloom, peony has been referred to as “The King of Flowers” in Eastern cultures since Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD). With their lush, full, rounded blooms, peonies embody confidence, joy and passion of life, inspiring more than tens of thousands poems and countless art and design creations.

With Color, Peony Shines

For centuries, peonies were planted in imperial gardens, palaces, and mansions; therefore, they symbolize nobility, prosperity, and romance, which makes them a popular choice for bridal bouquet and their motifs great wedding and anniversary gifts. Growing peonies requires patience. It takes time to see an abundant display of flowers, but once they start blooming, a lifetime of exquisite flowers can be expected. As such, peonies are also representation of the glory and the celebration for achievements of any kind, such as career promotion, graduation, or moving into a new house.

 

 

Without Color, Peony Humbles

LIULI Artist Loretta H. Yang creates “The Proof of Awareness” to seize the moment of clarity. Peonies in full bloom embody confidence and passion of life, and without colors, we are able to see through the very existence of the flow and one’s true self. Just as a wise saying goes, ”Be the same person you are in the dark as you are in the light”, this collection reminds us of authenticity and mindfulness

Peony as a Cultural Symbol, Touches LIULI by Heart          

The spirit of peony, with and without colors, resonates with LIULI’s core value  “To forever creates that which is good for the human heart”. LIULI also adopts an exquisite embroidery peony pattern created by “Jiangning Fabrics Bureau”, the central commission organization of textiles for imperial families and prestigious officials during Qing Dynasty (1645-1904 AD), to deliver LIULI’s ethics in craftsmanship: a lifelong learning journey through continuous doing, thinking, and self-reflection.

Since then, Peony has become LIULI’s brand signifier, which can be seen throughout everything we do, from art creations, gallery interior decors, architecture, to packaging. Through the symbol and meaning of peonies, we deliver the warmest blessings and gratitude to our appreciators, collectors, and partners around the world.

LIULI at Musee de l'Hotel Gouin

500-year anniversary, a conversation on glass heritage And the confluence of East and West

When Loretta H. Yang and Chang Yi first stepped foot in Tours last month on invitation to open for what was the 500th anniversary of an ancient art heritage site, they were swept but unsurprised at the history of the place.  When asked about their first impression, Yang and Chang both replied that it is immediately noticeable as a land of art revival.  And that, further yet, it truly is a garden of self-discovery where people who, through the struggle of contemplating the world, inspire the most genius of artistic creativity.  On April 20th, as the pair of Chinese glass maestros met with Antoine Leperlier for the second time in a year, this is the conversation that opened an unforgettable exhibit.

 Located in the UNESCO-named world heritage site of Tours, Hotel Gouin attracts all manners of brilliant minds from across the globe.  The 15th century building is redolent with details from a period of prolific art revival.  And since the opening of the exhibit in April, eighteen of Yang and Chang’s best pieces have been on display in the building.

About the Artist: Loretta Yang & Chang Yi

[  Inquiry for exhibit's artwork  ]

While Antoine Leperlier’s panache indubitably inspires the awe in onlookers, Yang and Chang contrast in the quiet power of their contemplative work.  With thirty years of continual creativity and failure as well as both success and rejection in the art world, the two masters bring astonishing achievements and deep life philosophies that culminate in this international discussion on heritage, contemporaneity, and a confluence of East and West.

When asked about their views on this cross-cultural exchange, Yang and Chang replied that:  Yes, art is indeed an integral aspect of culture—culture is heritage, and it is life.  Therefore, art must have relevancy in its age and must be deeply connected to the life that the artists’ have led.  After two lifetimes of continual labor and painstaking effort to bring Chinese glass art to the modern and global arena, Yang and Chang can safely say that they are proud to have brought the beauty of liuli art this far.
