Within a Flower, a Leaf--Enlightenment (Formless, but Not Without Form - Artist's Edition)

Color: Powder White

A series of Crystal Buddha images in glass that are both transparent and opaque, concealed and revealed, formless and without form. This meditation décor formed with the multiple casting method is a visual expression of Buddhist philosophy, and a reflection on the ephemeral nature of life that emerges for a brief instant only to pass away like so many bubbles. These pieces of Zen home décor address the fleeting nature of existence head on, conveying in a visual language what the diamond Sutra states in words: “All existence is karma, illusory as a dream of bubbles on a pond.”

In 2016, Formless, But Not Without Form became Musée des Arts Décoratifs’ first acquisition of Chinese liuli art in its century-old history.


The Collection: Formless, but Not Without Form  |  系列: 無相無無相


Within a Flower, a Leaf - Enlightenment

Recognize the illusion and impermanence of the “form”,
Compassion is the knowledge used to confront life.

It is written in the Diamond Sutra:
“Let your mind function freely, without abiding anywhere or in anything”.

In a formless and selfless existence,
In a dreamlike and illusory state,
A reminder:
Since life is impermanent,
Each moment in the present is priceless.
