Spring Garden Show 2018

At Home and At Zen

Garden of Zen

We have always believed that good art can elevate your state of consciousness—that it can elevate your mind and awaken the soul.  Art should naturally be beautiful; but only as beautiful as the inner peace in you that it reflects.

The 29th annual Orange County garden show opened today.  Having prepared months for the theme—“mind, body, and soil”—we invited our studio artists to design a space for the exhibit that is as much outwardly radiant and beautiful as it is introspective and meditative.

Bursting peonies at your feet lead in a clean and undisturbed path to a simple yet elegantly framed cabana.  This is the central focus of our exhibit.  And in the spotlight, the all-healing LIULI blue medicine Buddha.

Enjoying tea in the thick of a lush garden decorated with lotus flowers is one thing.  Doing so while meditating under the warm glow of radiant liuli glass is another.  One might emerge from this state of trance wondering if they’ve truly taken a visit to an artisan-crafted garden… or merely stepped foot into the sanctuary of their own heart.

LIULI’s “Garden of Zen” was exhibited there on April 26th through 29th, 2018

Artist/Founder Loretta H. Yang leads a team of experienced artisans to create arts that honor the richness of cultural heritage and value.

Step No. 1: Design and sculpting


Step 2 of the process involves coating our original clay sculpture in silicone. Layer after layer (3 to 7 layers) is fastidiously coated to produce a negative mold, a crucial step in capturing the prevision of the sculpture. Each layer must dry completely before additional layer is applied, thickness must be uniform to prevent leakage of wax. Once complete, the clay is removed to reveal a negative silicone mold.

Step No. 2: Silicone molding


Pour molten wax into the negative silicone mold.

Step No. 3: Infusion of molten wax. Fill wax into a negative mold.


Once wax has solidified and cooled, release the wax form by carefully peeling back the silicone mold. Like a butterfly molting, the silicon is shed to reveal a positive wax form.

Step No. 4: Shedding of silicon mold to obtain the wax form


A careful refinement of the wax sculpture. Because every microinch and subtlety plays its own role in the grand scheme of beauty. Our artists refine the wax mold to its final perfection.

Step No. 5: Wax form refinement; removing imperfections


The wax mold is placed on a wooden plank in a metal container and plaster is poured and solidified. Embedding wax form with fire-resistant plaster.

Step No. 6: Coating the wax sculpture with plaster to form a refractory mold


Wax is steamed out of the plaster under high heat yielding a negative plaster mold.

Step No. 7: Removal of wax with steam—the essence of the “lost-wax” process


Liuli ingredients are created through unique firing and processing of glass. Color and size appropriate pieces are placed within the plaster and fired.

Step No 8: Choosing color; kiln firing


Fire and melt. Under intense heat, a new vision of transparency and clarity is born.

Step No. 9: Re-firing at 1,400 degrees Celsius


Extreme patience and care are necessary when removing the plaster to prevent damage.

Step No. 10: Removal of plaster mold

When the art pieces emerge, our masters step in to carefully chip away the plaster mold. Like excavating fragile archaeological relics, one false move and you're left with broken shards.


First comes die-cutting - smoothing the crystal down to the last microinch. Rough polish, removal of excess support, refinement and fine surface polish with a high-speed fabric wheel.

Step No. 11: Retouching of details; burnishing and polishing

Our artist refines and re-polishes each and every detail yet again.


An etched number on the base of each piece indicates its limited edition and reminds us to never stop creating. After the engraving - an official LIULI artwork is born.

Step No.12: Final inspection; etching of serial number; packaging
