LIULI Crystal Elephant Sculpture, Lucky Little Elephant

$210.00

Design Description:

Breaking from traditional confines, this design tout familiarity and accessibility. This is LIULI’s take on Art movements such as urban, pop, neo-pop and Superflat. Floral dolls are part of our heritage. It takes on a new look when rendered in liuli. Boasting an ample shape that captures and emits light through a floral body, each part of this sculpture is created with precision from form to detail. Does it even have eyes? It doesn’t seem like it but they’re there. Our designers have taken an abstract approach, using the blank space to frame out and allude to their presence.

此作品設計有傳統玩具花布娃娃的概念,琉璃的材質和潮流藝術的表達方式,賦予了它全新的形象,從傳統走出,讓琉璃更有親和力。圓滾滾的身體,經過設計師有意的設計,讓光在琉璃裡有足夠空間折射,一身的花草紋樣,不是對花布圖案的簡單複刻,而是對光的精緻勾勒。它有眼睛嗎? 琉璃材質的透光讓抽象的雕塑裡形成一個有趣的想像空間, 我們可以想像, 它有時是閉眼的,依偎著如意, 充滿喜悅與滿足。我們也可以想像, 它的眼睛大到充滿眼框, 因為光。

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

Alt

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

Alt

Pour molten wax into the negative silicone mold.

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

Alt

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

Alt

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

Alt

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

Alt

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

Alt

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

Alt

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

Alt

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.

Alt

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.

Alt

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
