Liuli, is an idea, an emotion.Liuligongfang was established in 1987. From scratch, they mastered the lost-wax casting technique (also known as pâte-de-verre or cire-perdue). Through constant nurturing, Liuligongfang elevated the creative realm of pâte-de-verre to a new level that no one has reached before. Today the term “Liuli” is widely used throughout the Chinese world and approximately hundreds of craft workshops. But how many people do they truly understand the meaning of “Liuli”?The term “Liuli” first was appeared in the Western Zhou Dynasty as a reference to the lead-barium glass produced at the time. “Gongfang” originated from the Song and Ming Dynasties as a common word for workshop. Liuligongfang believes that if thought and emotion are neglected, technique and material will never evolve past the surface level.This is why we did not the adopt the common French or English terms for “crystal glass” and instead opted for the phonetic Chinese spelling of “Liuli”. Instilling this significance into our creative material and it represents the importance the cultural and historical connection for Liuligongfang.
