The Collection: A Chinese LIULI Flower
In traditional Chinese culture, the spring orchid symbolizes nobility, elegance and a conflict-free society; it is the ethical ideal of traditional Chinese culture that Confucius often referred to. The orchid is the gentleman of flowers. The raised flowers in the design represent the first sign of a flourishing spring. A gust of spring wind, a fragrant harbinger, joyful news and the wide open and explicit conviction of the orchid.
The joined flower and leaf in the design come together to form a seamless circle. Although the technical difficulties are great, it ensures the fluidity of the final presentation and a harmonious union, capturing the moment of a perfect spring breeze.
The Orchid, in Chinese culture, is the artistic paradigm of the spring season. The flower ushers in spring with gentle fragrance, welcoming it with both grace and virtue. This crystal sculpture encompasses both abstract and naturalistic elements to invoke the living orchid. While it has a polished base, resembling a stalk, the glass flower itself uses powdered crystal for a vibrant contrast. The two pieces are crafted separately, fired in the kiln at different temperatures, before being expertly joined together in the same kiln. Conceived with such masterful technique, the resulting glass art captures the orchid’s noble elegance, coming to life in a spring dance to paint the season in vivid color.
