Crystal Flower, Peony Bloom, Our Great Beauty

$2,300.00

The Collection: Flower SculpturesA Peaceful Existence

Design Concept:

The Peony, here sculpted into a dazzling crystal flower art piece, is known as the king of all flowers and zenith of nature’s beauty.  It is the one that the Chinese have held in great esteem for millennia, and it was often reserved solely for those of royal descent and as a symbol of opulence and prosperity. Peony conveys blessings of fulfillment, passion and splendid harmony. The glasswork which combines vase and flower takes its viewer through an honest examination of both inner and outer beauty. Layers of pedals growing upwards form an abstract and solid pillar just as we all form a society. View the self through flowers, view the world through a vase. In the grace of the peony, we are shown the serenity in life. 

概念設計說明: 

水晶琉璃牡丹,脫蠟鑄造技法手工製成。牡丹因花型寬厚,大而豔麗,被稱為百花之王,視為富貴昌盛的象徵,有著圓滿、濃情、雍華富貴的祝福。設計上,層疊的花瓣自成一體,延展成抽象的方柱,卻相簇擁成一朵盛放的花,如同我們共同成就一個社會的美好。琉璃工房以花,隱喻紛雜世界的相處之道,因為和諧共生,必須不自我,不排他,方致共生華美。以花觀己,以瓶觀世界,從作品牡丹的雍容,看見生命的從容。

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
