LIULI Crystal Art, Phoenix, Splendor In The Nine Heavens

$2,180.00

Design Description:

Two phoenixes sound off in pursuit of an ideal spiritual companion. Lofty in character, the phoenix soars suspended in mid-air. The phoenix is the messenger of light, it symbolizes love, harmony. As the bearer of luck, auspiciousness and fortuitous love, the image of the phoenix is widely used as a blessing for a fulfilling and harmonious marriage.

Within this rich and complex symbolism, the phoenix rises, in search of and creating an ideal world bursting with life and color. Of beauty, kindness, and rebirth, may the phoenix’s divine spirit and beautiful legend bless this world with unlimited auspiciousness and fortune.

Vivid details of two phoenixes’ wings and gaze were made possible because of pate de verre technique. Looking at each other in grace posture and gentle gaze, two phoenixes paint a vision of harmony. High polished base design sparks a modern, yet timeless moment of love.

雙鳳齊鳴,追求美好的精神伴侶,並肩尋追美好的境界,多彩多姿, 蓬勃向上。鳳凰是愛情的象徵,鳳凰是光明之使者,是人間祥瑞的象徵,帶給人們無限的吉祥和幸福,用來祝賀婚姻美滿和諧。脫蠟鑄造技法對於兩隻鳳凰動態的展現,表現得栩栩如生。兩隻鳳凰專注凝視彼此,展現和諧的意象。刻紋如美好的愛情細水長流,作品底座高度拋光,搭配自然琉紋色彩,結合現代設計與經典東方鳳凰的形象,勾勒一幅人間的理想境界。

Splendor In The Nine Heavens

Nine heavens, nine summits,
against the cloud filled skies.
Illuminated and opulent,
the phoenix sounds off.
In unison,
splendor in flight.

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
