Bird Figurine (Behold Our Dream Taking Off) - "To See, Is To Believe - Kingfisher"


Artwork Description

To See, Is To Believe - Kingfisher
- Behold our dream taking off

The kingfisher is the most difficult piece LLGF has ever created since its establishment. Altogether, nearly thirty trial burns have been done and over 200 hours went into its design with only a 5% success rate. A kingfisher, from design to completion, journeys through long periods of trial and error. Each feather represents the tremendous effort put into it.  With limitless diligence and effort, the technique of pâte de verre is brought to another height turning lifeless materials into a vivacious kingfisher displaying nature's robust vitality.  This is the most touching breakthrough in the 150 years of LIULI history and I would like to share this story with you.

The feathers of the kingfisher have a layering patterns and a symphony of lights; the royal blue patterns on its back are very eye catching hence its nickname “Flying jewel”. While the colors of the kingfisher are beautiful, they also pose a great difficulty to its making.

It took three sculptural versions, almost thirty kiln test-firings and an arduous color experimentation process before the LIULIGONGFANG artisans were satisfied with their colorfully layered bird.

The body of the kingfisher uses the color placement technique, putting an emphasis on the accuracy and the vibrancy of the colors.

The marks on the tree trunks are realistically defined and the background is a clear hemisphere that symbolizes the ripples on the surface of water.
