Crystal Flower, Magnolia, World of Beautiful Compassion

$2,800.00

The Collection: Flower SculpturesA Peaceful Existence

Design Concept:

This crystal magnolia flower artwork is another beloved favorite of the Chinese.  As if to announce the arrival of spring after a long winter, the Magnolia has traditionally bloomed on-queue at the first full moon of the year.  It’s long been associated in Chinese culture as a symbol of love among families and friends. This design is inspired by the philosophy of “a full moon and beautiful flowers”. Sculpted with the characteristic roundness that symbolizes good harmony and fulfillment. The large polished surface represents the moon as it reflects the flowers. The magnolia is first colored with powdered pigments to create a realistic effect. Then it is fired again and fused with the vase. This is a token of families’ and friends’ appreciation for one another and of the harmony that connects us all. View the self through flowers, view the world through a vase. Through the elegance of the magnolia, we are shown the stillness in movement. 

概念設計說明: 

水晶琉璃玉蘭花,脫蠟鑄造技法手工製成,設計上,以「花好月圓」概念進行。大面積的圓體拋光,象徵一輪明月,映照花好的璀璨,玉蘭,先以粉料定色,令花的綻放栩栩生動,爾後再與瓶身進行二次燒製接駁,「花好月圓」是一種美好的生命期許,花開到最好,月滿到最圓,是最幸福美好的人生狀態。古人將玉蘭花看做是愛情、親情、友情的信物,“金蘭之交”就是友情的最高層次,結拜之時也稱義結金蘭。玉蘭花代表了純淨的愛情、溫馨的親情、堅貞的友情。玉蘭花,又名迎春花,綻放於春季,因此玉蘭象徵宣示美好的到來。以花觀己,以瓶觀世界,從作品玉蘭的高雅,看見靜美。

World of Beautiful Compassion

The sun, the moon,
a circle to accommodate all.
The rain and dew, selfless,
inextinguishable life within each drop
nourishing

lush leaves and coy blooms.
This is where fulfillment convenes.

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
