Features:

  • Final piece of 12 pieces limited edition 

The grandest design from 2012, Year of the Dragon, by Loretta H. Yang and our artists at the LIULI studio. This immense sculpture, over half a year in the making, uses tremendously fine detail and underwent over forty percent failure rate when firing in the kiln. Pouring together the efforts of over a dozen artists and laborers, this crystal glass dragon was designed to express might, courage and nobility in a way no other dragon could. Sumptuous golden amber colors are used to amplify light for a resplendent look. Its arms reaches out to the heavens and the Earth in a way that speaks, “My power is the sky and ground combined—my strength is unlimited."

 

The Collection: Arising from the East (The Dragon) 

 

An Overwhelming Force from the East

A wind blows in from the East,
Waking up the rivers and mountains.
Your influence stretches from past to present,
From the edges of the sky to the sun, the moon,
You are a dragon amongst mortals.

萬里東風動地來

東風起
千里江山驚蟄
氣吞今古豪情
天岸日月
新人中龍

Design Concept:

  • In Chinese legend, the dragon rises to heaven in the spring and submerges underwater in the fall. With the power to summon wind and rain, it encompasses the Chinese philosophy of mortal and celestial worlds united.
  • Vigorous, vital, progressive with unbridled might, the Chinese dragon is unstoppable and fearless. The moniker “dragon amongst mortals” is oft used to describe an individual of exceptional character.
  • This design in amber depicts a divine dragon waking to the easterly winds. It opens its jaw and stretches its claws with distinction, added vitality to the piece, forming a dragon that possesses an unfaltering spirit that can move mountains.
  • Pate de verre is used to create the complex layers and sculptural details seen in this design. Echoing the traditional Chinese auspicious cloud motif, the dragon rises up to the Nine Heavens. A dragon flying through the skies symbolizes the absolute zenith: may all dragons amongst mortals inspire and be inspired.

概念設計說明:

  • 龍在中國傳統文化中,春分登天,秋分潛淵,呼風喚雨,蘊涵著中國人所重視的天人合一的宇宙觀,千百年來都是象徵尊貴和力量的祥瑞神物。
  • 朝氣蓬勃,奮發向上,威武不屈,中國龍大多是勢不可擋、無所畏懼的,因此常以“人中龍”比喻卓越出眾的人物。
  • 作品以琥珀色琉璃定色,神龍蘇醒在東風中,龍口大張,龍爪飛舞,氣度威嚴,令靜態雕塑增加了流動的生命氣場,表現氣吞山河的力量和無所畏懼的精神,形神塑造惟妙。
  • 以琉璃脫蠟鑄造法呈現龍紋繁複的層次和細節,刻畫極致精緻。借鑒中國傳統的祥雲元素,表現龍騰九霄的超逸。飛龍在天,象徵巔峰時刻,祝願人中之龍,永遠傲立風流。
