LIULI Crystal Art, an exquisite collection of crystal glass, has held a special place in my heart since the 1990s when I first encountered their gallery during a trip to Taiwan. Nestled within the airport, their display immediately captured my attention. Now, nearly three decades later, I am thrilled to introduce their breathtaking creations to the discerning audience of the United States.
The story of LIULI Crystal Art began in 1987, when two luminaries of the Taiwanese film industry, Loretta Yang and Chang Yi, both acclaimed artists, established LIULI Gongfeng (“LIULI Workshop”). Their mission was to revive the ancient lost wax casting method of glassmaking, known in Europe as Pate de Verre, which once flourished during China’s Han Dynasty (206 B.C.–220 A.D.). The term “Liuli,” originating from that period, was chosen to pay homage to the wealth of Chinese heritage and culture. Guided by her profound devotion to Buddhism, Ms. Yang aspired to imbue her art with a sense of spiritual enrichment. This intention radiates through the collection, featuring sculptures and figurines inspired by nature and spirituality.
Through relentless refinement of their craftsmanship, LIULI Crystal Art has propelled contemporary glass artistry to unprecedented heights. Their pieces have found homes in museums across thirty countries, including prestigious institutions like the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Corning Museum of Glass. Each creation in the collection undergoes a proprietary twelve-step process, requiring six to eight months of meticulous work. The more intricate the piece, the greater the time and effort invested in its flawless realization. The outcome is artwork of unparalleled intricacy and magnificence, surpassing the offerings of the market, regardless of origin. Their unwavering pursuit of excellence and perfection is evident in every single piece.
