Crystal Kitchen Decor, Bitter Melon, Bittersweet

$5,060.00

Collection: Enrich 

Design Description:

The classic bitter melon is a crop symbolizing the dualities of life and nature.  As if it was a mythical fruit created by the sun and the moon, this melon represents more than a reverence for nature (as the rest of the Enrich collection does).  The bitter melon represents a distinctly Chinese philosophy on balance and harmony.  Here, “Bittersweet” is sculpted and colored to bring out that contrast.  Studio artists draw upon its bittersweet nature, alluding to the same feeling often given to one by life and nature.  The work reminds one to flourish in that delicate balance and enjoy all season through their moments, both bitter and sweet.

一顆苦瓜,似懸在湖心,汲取源源的浩氣,是天地孕育的一個精華,生命力的凝聚。是苦瓜,卻覺悟了人間甘美。作品中心鏤空一個圓,圓周邊和底部,環繞絲絲琉紋,是一個源源循環不斷的生命力。

底座高高立起,承托上方凝聚的甘美,是那麼神聖莊嚴。頂部纏繞的瓜藤,開出的花,圓中綴著的苦瓜,表現整個生命生長的過程。用綠透的琉璃,呈現一顆細微苦瓜的鮮嫩欲滴;高難度的雕刻工藝,細緻表現苦瓜每一粒的凸起,表現天地造物的用心和我們的敬畏。先苦後甘、苦盡甘來,對中國人來說,苦瓜是一種超脫的生命反省,完美地呈現生命歷程。

清·畫家石濤,就以“苦瓜和尚”自稱,呈現心境的歷練磨難。苦瓜,是一顆日磨月磋出來的仙果,就像人生在不斷覺醒後,收穫心中甘美。

Bittersweet

A constant stream of consciousness
nurtures the bitter gourd.
It tastes true to its name
with a lingering dry sweetness.

Life
oscillates between bitter and sweet.
Recognize
this taste of chan
that permeates heaven and earth.


心中甘味源源

源源心智
孕一顆苦瓜
道是苦
竟是甘美

人間永是
甘苦之中
悟覺
天地禪味
