$134.00

The Collection: Sake & Shot Glass Set

Design Concept:

"Li Bai’s Intoxication"

Modern, yet classic. The creative concept won The Golden Pin Design Award excellence. 

The barware is made of high-quality bone china. Sets serve for a pot of two cups and a pot of four cups. “Li Bai’s Intoxication” is inspired by one of the greatest Chinese poets Li Bai from Tang Dynasty (618–907 AD), whose philosophy of life is freedom and friendship. 

Drawing from classical Chinese painting and architecture, this set of barware with a dragon relief sculpture in bone china and a daring ruby-color LIULI crystal is imbued with the vibrancy of life.

概念設計說明:

微醺太白

作品為優質骨瓷材質,含一壺兩杯及一壺四杯兩種組合供客人選擇。獲金點設計獎肯定。

「微醺太白」的靈感來源於「李白鬥酒詩百篇」的詩詞意境。酒壺器形源於甲骨文的「 酒」字。 葫蘆型賦予「福祿」的美好寓意,8 字形壺身有「 財運大發無窮無限」的意境。 壺頂的設計,取中國古時宮殿飛簷的意象,別致大氣,學識淵博不落俗套

飛龍,祥雲,宮殿等設計元素,使人聯想至盛唐,詩仙,李白。才華橫溢瀟灑狂放,讓人神往憧憬。

Li Bai's Intoxication

Slightly intoxicated
On life’s glass of wine.
Raise your glass in an invitation,
Recall the image of poet Li Bai,
And let us enjoy together in song and wine.

Li Bai, a well-known poet in Tang Dynasty. He was fond of drinking wine very much and his character was very free and easy. After drinking wine a lot, he could make many beautiful poems with his intoxicant feeling.

微醺太白

微微醺
人生得意一杯酒
舉杯相邀
描摹太白氣質
待誰人唱和。

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
