Collection: A Treasure for All Generations
The vessel in ancient Chinese heritage (or “ding”) is a symbol and artistic leitmotif that has transgressed the ages and been passed down to present day. Inspired by this heritage, this piece, titled “Divine Dragon Cluster Ding,” uses tastefully placed bubbles with expertly placed color strings for a vibrant and captivating appearance. The stunning effect, with two clusters of Han Dynasty dragon pattern designs, is a vivid and colorful representation of heritage and tradition.
The dragon patterned handles are created through sculpture in the round. Two small dragons encircle the opening of the ding while the body is covered in motifs in relief. The beautiful motifs of ancient Chinese bronzes are revived through the Pate-de-verre technique in this design. The small scale increases the difficulty of the craft.
琉璃工房用琉璃的尊鼎器物，追尋文化裡，那遺失的、輝煌的、極致的美好。 知道輝煌的過去，才有輝煌的未來 -- 張毅 錦簇龍團鼎的雙耳，以圓雕的方式立體呈現，兩條小龍蜷身攀於鼎口，軀幹上鋪滿浮雕的細小紋飾。力求以脫蠟鑄造的工藝再現青銅器華美的紋飾，尺寸的縮小，亦增加了工藝的難度。 雙龍分居左右，向鼎內探頭望去，似乎在守護先人留下的財富。 鼎腹和底座分別採用噴砂和拋光方式處理，對比鮮明，呈現出兩種不同的視覺效果。
