The Beautiful New World of Liuli Crystal Art: Prosperity, Ubiquitous

The world naturally becomes beautiful.

The world’s treasures are yours for the taking.

Open your eyes to this world,
And see the ubiquity of prosperity and fortune.

From the Goodness of the Heart - Ubiquitous Fortune and Luck

The hope for a beautiful new world is a wish shared by many for the new year. In 2015, LIULIGONGFANG will embark on a journey through the goodness of the heart with Prosperity, Ubiquitous. Fertile grains, opulent peonies, extraordinary passerines, bold crustaceans and carefree goldfish are transformed into exquisite specimens of Eastern aesthetics. With these designs, we invite you to summon prosperity, fortune and luck to your side.

LIULIGONGFANG founder Chang Yi believes: LIULI can not exist without soul, without heart. Emile Galle, key instigator of the 19th century Art Nouveau movement created life from an inanimate object - glass. Taking inspiration from Galle, LIULIGONGFANG’s Spring 2015 Prosperity, Ubiquitous takes natural elements and instills them with Asian aesthetic sensibilities. Each piece narrates the intricacies of life; they are manifestations of this era’s sentimental values. Rich with life’s fortunes, like a peony in bloom, the vitality of a carefree goldfish or a crustacean’s bold resolve, allow these natural landscapes to open up a new year of propitiousness.

In Search of a Fortune to Call Your Own

The Prosperity, Ubiquitous collection is inspired by the ubiquitous goodness of nature. Each piece is a manifestation of joy through LIULI. The standout piece of the collection is Crimson Delights, in which imagery of the lychee and magpie are joined to create an enriching landscape of flora and fauna. The size of the lychee fruit appears lifelike in size and texture; the magpie appears in lively three-dimensional form, a display of our artisans’ sculptural adeptness in LIULI. Presented in red, the color of the New Year, Crimson Delights is festive and joyful.

In addition, the five pieces of Abundance symbolize five grains of the harvest and prosperity in the new year. It makes an ideal year-end thank you gift. Incomparable and Harmonious Beauty represent new opportunities and perpetual fortune and make ideal New Year gifts. Wondrous Bloom and Flawless Splendor symbolize one’s personal hopes for the new year: a peacock in ascent, a peony in full bloom - images of life’s most fulfilling moments.

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
