LIULI Crystal Art, Horse, Rising through Heaven and Earth

$17,800.00


Design Description:

Galloping as if in flight, these six fine horses move majestically, without hesitation. Raising wind and waves, through the maelstrom, one after one advances with courage and vision. This line of six magnificent horses galloping upwards through wind and waves, unhindered in the slightest, expresses the confidence and perseverance which overcome all obstacles while striving to achieve a lofty aspiration.

The six horses represent the six righteous forms of human conduct: an official’s loyalty to their country, a father’s benevolent treatment of his children, a child’s respect for their parents, an older brother’s affection for his younger brother, a younger brother’s respect for his older brother - this is how we as a people and society come together. These six principles are first laid out in the Zuo Zhuan (Commentary of Zuo), an ancient narrative history traditionally regarded as a commentary on the Spring and Autumn Annals, and correspond to the six principles of social harmony in Confucianism: justice, loyalty, compassion, filial piety, love, and respect.

There are two perspectives to appreciate the design. It could be a team, or an individual who is pursuing of excellence. This piece also can be seen as a horse galloping in slow motion, in all its power and glory. It also portrays a generational legacy one after another.

澎湃而上的生命之歌,群馬的奔騰姿態,是飛揚的,壯美的,毫無遲疑的, 乘風躍水而起,激蕩裡一匹一匹馬的的奮進不息。是一種向上騰躍的、沒有停止的、更高還要更高、更遼闊的夢想與志氣;以及一關又一關,突破艱難的衝勁、自信,與堅強的意志。

六匹馬昂首向上, 六六大順, 取自《左傳》:“君義,臣行,父慈,子孝,兄愛,弟敬,此數者累謂六順, 六種順應, 是儒家思想中的和諧圓滿的人生應對, 仁義,忠誠,慈祥,孝順,友愛,尊敬。是人與與家人相處和睦,與社會中的人相處融洽,做到左右逢源,事事順風順水齊向上。

它是, 是一群人的團隊,但也可以是一個成功的人,追求卓越的過程,或是,六匹馬像是一個慢動作的連續畫面。在這樣的前進動力之後,展現了光耀燦爛的,一代一代的華美盛世。

Rising through Heaven and Earth

Leading each other,
united as one,
an inextinguishable force
heading only in one direction - up.
Through rivers, oceans and mountains,
commanding the water aboard the wind,
stirring the waves,
welcoming the dawn,
we ascend,
rising victorious through heaven and earth.

騰舞天地共昂揚

昂揚領路
眾聚一心
生生不息欲何往?
大江大海大湖大山。
乘風馭水
破混沌
見曙光
雲水浪尖向上向上
齊舞天地奔騰奔騰。

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
