Auspicious Summit â€“ "Taiwan Sambar Deer" (Behold the Tenacious Determination)
NOTES: Auspicious Summit â€“ Taiwan Sambar Deer
- Behold the tenacious determination
A Symbol of Good Luck
In Chinese, the word deer â€œLuâ€ is homonymous with the word â€œLuâ€ meaning wealth of the three words of good omen: â€œFu, Lu, Shouâ€. A hundred deer gathered together is regarded as â€œabundant wealthâ€.
Like a hermit in the mountains, the Taiwan Sambar Deer is transcendent, leaping with majesty across its peaked domain. In this design, its hind leg is raised as if in search of an even higher summit to scale. The LIULI base appears in gradient green, with the varying depths resembling the shifting light and shadows of a mountain. Both concrete and surreal, the artisans visually capture the esoteric nature okf the lush forest. The dignified three and two tined antler formation is unique to the male deer. During the wax refinement process, it was of utmost importance to ensure the antlers were in harmonious balance. Fired upside down, the main concern during the firing process was antler breakage due to high pressure. LIULIGONGFANG artisans rose up to these challenges and more to recreate the Taiwan Sambar Deer in its enigmatic glory.
Technique: Pate de Verre (Lost-Wax Casting)
Auspicious Summit - Taiwan Sambar Deer
Dense fog, heavy cloud,
Intermittent flashes of light.
Rise to the summit, step by step
With an underfoot of flowers
Already high, one can climb higher,
Ambitious and committed.

Liuli Crystal bio
Over the last 24 years, Liuli Gongfang has given a new life to the lost art of Chinese Liuli Crystal. Every creation goes through a twelve-step process, lasting a total of six to eight weeks. In addition, each series is part of a limited collection, driving the team to constantly create new works of art. Liuli Gong Fang's creations have been bestowed upon VIP members of the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards and given to over 32 world leaders. Liuli Gongfang's Pate-De-Verre creation process involves casting a wax sculpture in plaster, melting out that wax and adding glass ingredients to the leftover negative space. While this technique is incredibly time consuming, it yields unequaled detail and a dynamic blending of colors. Due to the hand crafted nature of Liuli Crystal, no piece is identical and each is a unique work of art. Air bubbles are formed naturally during the creation of Liuli Crystal and the artists use these bubbles to accent their creations, carefully manipulating their flow and size.
