Crystal Floral Vase, Crane, Flight of Legacy

$2,980.00

The Collection: An Auspicious Look for a Beautiful World

Design Concept:

The soothing color of cool blue and warm amber form a balance in the artwork. The cranes in this artwork symbolize grace, royalty, and longevity.  They soar with outspread wings, looking at each other lovingly while encircling the vase. It captures the perfect moment of togetherness in eternity and steadfast love. This piece is the rebirth of traditional Asian art in a modern LIULI form.  The vase is a Meiping shape, created since the ancient era and used to display branches of plum blossoms.  It is tall, has a narrow bottom spreading gradually into a wide body, and ends with a small opening. The poetry of flying cranes is one of the traditional subjects in ancient art and culture, and it is reinterpreted in LIULI, forming a new legacy. 

概念設計說明:

以中國著名的「梅瓶」型態,加上浮雕展現出祥雲圍繞雙鶴的造型,善用中國歷代美學的特色,讓作品充滿風雅古韻,處處表達出祥和美好的瑞氣

好好欣賞,會感受到雙鶴彼此對望想要流露出的情感;再仔細觀賞,會看到雙鶴羽毛細膩真實的細節和紋理。尤其是因為以瓶子的平面來做浮雕,這個技法使得透過凹凸的差異,光和影產生的深度,以及深淺雕工產生前後的微距離,讓原本圓弧而平面的瓶子能夠更具有活潑和立體感。

藝術家選用「梅瓶」為主要造型,所謂的「梅瓶」,其特色是口小腹大,號稱中國第一器型。(古人多用於插放梅花,可能因為梅花枝幹,纖瘦細長,很適合口頸細小的瓶子插放。所以此造型的瓶子稱為「梅瓶」),整體設計大器美觀、隱涵古韻。

Flight of Legacy

Wings unfurled
together in flight,
from sea to sky
without a care.
Flying high
through the clouds
and into the skies,
this is our legacy.

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
