Crystal Flower, Iris, A Dance in the Spring Wind

$1,860.00

The Collection: Flower SculpturesA Peaceful Existence

Design Concept:

Iris, traditionally viewed as a bridge to the otherworldly and ethereal, possesses a dynamic quality about it—almost dancing on its own.  Echoing the romantic depictions of the Iris flower in mythologies across the Old World, this vase-and-flower piece is redolent with passion and movement.  Seeming to be almost the personification of love itself, the Iris blazes with a ravishing and vivacious energy. View the self through flowers, view the world through a vase. Through the passionate iris, we are shown eternal love. 

概念設計說明: 

水晶琉璃鳶尾花,脫蠟鑄造技法手工製成。造型上,花瓣向上飛舞搖曳,向下延展紮根至瓶身,如龍如風之姿,在風雲中熱烈地絢爛,象徵生命燃燒的炙烈,是一種生命頑強向上的精神,亦是作品與技法的完整結合。鳶尾花因花瓣形如鳶鳥尾巴而稱之,其屬名iris俗稱為「愛麗絲」,是希臘語「彩虹」之意。Iris在希臘神話中是彩虹女神,她是眾神與凡間的使者,也是花語一「愛的使者」的由來。以花觀己,以瓶觀世界,從作品鳶尾的熱情,看見愛的永恆。

Dance in the Spring Wind

Impassioned,
it dances.
Like a dragon, a phoenix,
the resplendent flower
becomes one with nature.

舞春風

因為熱情
舞動
如龍如鳳之姿
花的絢爛
竟成風雲

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
