Public Art

Public art is a focal point that connects local cultural context and visions. Not only does it illuminate the present, it lights the way for the future of this vibrant economic and cultural hub.

Malaysia Pavilion Mall Hibiscus Fountain

Converging water comes from all directions, and endless source everlasting its flourishes and prosperity. Referencing “three”, the Chines Book of Changes proclaims: from one comes two, from tow comes three. From three comes all living creatures. Three layers also symbolize three nationalities that comprise inclusive Malaysian culture.

Qingdao Camelia Installation

Qingdao is a cultural hub with over two millennia of history in China. Paying homage to this heritage. LIULI works with developer Greentown China to install a large-scale public art piece that connects a vision of nature, humanities, and culture to the art of a thousand-year-old cultural legacy. This liuli camellia represents art created for the good of the human heart and soul. Not only does it illuminate the present, but it also lights the way for the future. It bursts into life in a waterscape installation, behind which a single expression in calligraphy carved into rock says it all: “Benefiting from Easterly Winds.”

Shanghai LIULI Museum Building

5,025 petals, all handmade, weighted 1.5 tons, 54 inches wide, 3 months of installation. The peony flower sculpted from delicate metal wires looks fashionably modern but maintains the taste of its traditional elements at the same time. Under the element of light, the peony petals bloom delicately as the metal wires intercepts seamlessly. Founded by liuli artists Loretta H. Yang and Chang Yi, LIULI CHINA MUSEUM is Asia’s first all-encompassing liuli art museum.

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
