Crystal Animal, Tiger and Pig, Love Unbound

$939.00

The Collection: Pig Figurines  |  Tiger Figurines 

Design Concept:

Two unlikely friends unite in this whimsical and heartwarming glass piece from the imagination of LIULI studio artisans.  A boldly pig, who sits atop an amused and relaxed tigress.  The inspiration for this playful artworks comes from the notion that friendships can be formed by the most unlikely of people, coming together to unite over differences.  Composed of rich warm blends of reds, burgundies, and ambers, this bedside companion is a gentle reminder for any friend or colleague.

概念設計說明:

藝術家楊惠姍對於表演藝術的積累,同樣延續到琉璃雕塑創作。琉璃工房的創作團隊,將自己心中那份柔軟融入此款作品。

小豬背上綁著蝴蝶結,抱著虎媽媽腿貪睡。而虎媽媽則側臥著,用厚實的前掌摟著小豬,盡顯慈母本色。

小豬仔與老虎和諧共處,看似違背常理的場景,卻真實出現在了泰國一動物園。該動物園,多年來一直用這種混養的「歡樂家庭」模式。「愛無界」正是以此現象演繹的作品。

三隻肥嘟嘟的小豬,或依偎在虎媽媽懷裡,或趴在虎背上,調皮可愛的樣子,煞是惹人喜愛。虎媽媽也對三隻小虎呵護有加。

當如此「跨界」的兩個物種,和諧相處在一起的時候,我們相信愛是沒有界限、不分種族的。

就讓這濃濃愛意,在你我身邊蔓延,此款作品適合贈送雙親。 

Love Unbound

You do not look like my kind,
You do not sound like my kind,
Yet
When you hold and kiss me,
I come to the realization
That love
Does not differentiate.

愛無界

看起來非我族類
聞起來非我族類
然而
當你親吻我 擁抱我
突然明白
有了愛
就沒有了區分。

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
