Design Concept:

The twin dragon motif symbolizes reverence for the heavens and earth. The tripod feet are transformed into modern cubic shapes, filled with powdered material and adorned with lifelike glass patterns, showcasing an unceasing vitality. Through polishing, there's a visual contrast between tradition and modernity, resembling a lively symphony of life. The decorative patterns on the double ears of the tripod are inspired by the bronze figures found on the lower right side of the Chime of Marquis Yi from the Zenghouyi Tomb. The dragons coil in an S-shape, their bodies round and plump, with the twin dragons facing each other at the top, their claws gripping the rim of the tripod as they lift their heads upwards. In this series, each pair of double ears on the tripod exhibits unique characteristics. Among them, the patterns on the ears of the Ascending Heaven and Earth tripod are the most intricate. The posture of the ancient people holding the tripod in their hands during sacrificial rituals is transformed into the form of twin dragons. The dragons' bodies are densely adorned with intricate patterns, solemn and magnificent, with subtle variations in different areas. The tripod feet are simplified into square bases filled with powdered material and fired. After polishing, the rising glass patterns and dense bubbles create a dynamic, ever-flowing rhythm of life. The twin dragon motif expresses reverence for the heavens and earth. With four dragons supporting it, it signifies protection, while the inner wall of the tripod is inscribed with the words "For the Eternal Treasure of Descendants," adorned with gold foil, conveying blessings for future generations.

雙龍的造型,是表達對天地的敬意。鼎足化為現代的四方體,以粉燒填料,琉紋充滿生命力,展現生生不息的氣勢。再經過拋光處理,視覺有傳統與現代的對比,彷彿靈動的生命樂章。鼎雙耳紋飾,取材於曾侯乙編鐘架下層長架右端銅人柱。龍身蜷曲呈S形,圓潤飽滿,頂部雙龍相對,龍爪攀於鼎口沿處,昂首向上。此系列作品,鼎的雙耳各具特色。天地昂揚鼎,雙耳紋飾最為繁複。將古人祭天時,雙手捧鼎的姿勢,演變為雙龍的造型。龍週身密佈細密的紋飾,莊重華麗,局部變化靈巧。鼎足被簡化為方形底座,以粉料填燒。底座經拋光處理,升騰的琉紋,綿密的氣泡,循環往復,生生不息,彷彿躍動的生命樂章。雙龍的造型,表達對天地的敬意。四龍相托,代表守護之意,鼎口內壁刻有「子孫永寶用」字樣,並以金箔裝飾,以傳達護佑後人,福澤子孫之意。
