The Collection: A Chinese LIULI Flower
In ancient Greece, the goddess Iris acted as messenger from the Elysian Fields. Via rainbow. Hence, the dazzling rainbow-like iris flower. The flower sculpture seen here has two starkly contrasting parts—flower and leaf—both crafted and fired individually before being refired once more together. Working in tandem, the sharp features of the leaf show willful determination while the vibrant colors of the flower reveal a softer radiance. To that effect, the quality of the iris is in its contrasting, yet deeply complimentary personalities. The iris is already inherent pretty. Yet it possesses remarkable determination, and for that that the iris is all the more beautiful.
