Crystal Flower, Tulip, One Moon For All Blooms

$460.00

The Collection: Flower SculpturesA Peaceful Existence

Design Concept:

This crystal tulip flower speckles with a gorgeously moon reflection (base) using a masterful marrying of a lost-wax-casted crystal piece with a blown crystal piece—a technique pioneered and perfected by LIULI founders.  The tulip sculpted with meticulous care is perched without effort, a consequence of craftsmanship so fastidious that the piece seems more light than substance.  Gold foil is added, doubling the awe effect of the technical virtuosity.  Representing love, beauty, fortune, and blessings, the everlasting tulip here—like all other pieces within its collection—is a call to look upon the beautiful, both within and out. View the self through flowers, view the world through a vase. Through the charity of tulips, we are shown the wisdom of being nice and care about others. 

概念設計說明:

水晶琉璃鬱金香,脫蠟鑄造技法手工製成花朵,底座則由吹制而成,此兩種工藝組合,在琉璃作品少見且精緻。脫蠟鑄造的精准,讓鬱金香不僅有了生動的造型,也讓琉璃花有了精確的絢麗色彩,在琉璃透明材質下,成為了光的承容。吹制的底座,以無色琉璃加入金箔,呈現出幾近極致的工藝表現,留下了陽光輝耀。在鬱金香綻放的畫面中,常常伴隨著燦爛的陽光,而陽光所代表的永恆與愛,也成為了鬱金香的花語之一,鬱金香的花語:愛、慈善、名譽、美麗、祝福、永恆、愛的表白和永恆的祝福。以花觀己,以瓶觀世界,從作品鬱金香的慈善,看見待人的智慧。

One Moon For All Blooms

Exemplary, in bloom,
righteous and fresh.
The full moon glows,
unobstructed by clouds.
A thousand streams -
to the one moon they sing.
Time is fleeting,
such encounters
are of splendid providence.

花迎一池月

白駒過隙
相逢
卻是千載絢爛好因緣

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
