The kingfisher is the most difficult piece LLGF has ever created since its establishment. Altogether, nearly thirty trial burns have been done and over 200 hours went into its design with only a 5% success rate. A kingfisher, from design to completion, journeys through long periods of trial and error. Each feather represents the tremendous effort put into it. With limitless diligence and effort, the technique of pâte de verre is brought to another height turning lifeless materials into a vivacious kingfisher displaying nature's robust vitality. This is the most touching breakthrough in the 150 years of LIULI history and I would like to share this story with you., , The feathers of the kingfisher have a layering patterns and a symphony of lights; the royal blue patterns on its back are very eye catching hence its nickname “Flying jewel”. While the colors of the kingfisher are beautiful, they also pose a great difficulty to its making., , It took three sculptural versions, almost thirty kiln test-firings and an arduous color experimentation process before the LIULIGONGFANG artisans were satisfied with their colorfully layered bird., , The body of the kingfisher uses the color placement technique, putting an emphasis on the accuracy and the vibrancy of the colors., , The marks on the tree trunks are realistically defined and the background is a clear hemisphere that symbolizes the ripples on the surface of water.
NOTES: To See, Is To Believe - Kingfisher, , Green mountains, emerald valleys,, Clear waters,, Beauty -, This is my land., Ready is the flight of my dreams,, To believe,, Is to see.

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.
