LIULI Crystal Glass Horse Sculpture, Accomplished

$2,380.00

Design Description:

“Accomplished” shows the moment of determination and success. Eyes trained to a faraway place, its gaze conveys pride in its achievements and confidence in its future. The wind breezes through its mane and if you look closely, you will notice that it forms the Chinese character for a horse “馬” in calligraphy. The bottom of the artwork uses a sanding and polish technique to create a contrast of firm determination and swift movement. This is an ideal gift for a business or a person with status/experience.

作品中充分展現「馬」所擁有自信和勇敢的神韻,一直以來馬也代表「成功」的意思,所以我們最常聽到的一句成語「馬到成功」來表達勝利的祝願。除了對馬整體肌肉線條細膩的刻劃,特別設計馬背上,由鬃毛延伸出去的線條,這是藝術家想要代表「塵煙湧起」的線條,構成中國書法中,草書的「馬」字,巧妙地構思和連結,就是一種將寫實藝術和抽象藝術,不僅是理性與感性的結合, 且蘊含著深厚的文化情感。

Accomplished

A commanding presence felt far and wide,
heaven and earth are yours to command.
Sights set far,
you advance
toward opportunity
and accomplishment.

大功畢成

識大局察遠見
八方天地任騁馳

所向所往
捷報處處
大功已成

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
