The Collection: The Four Gentleman, Barware

Design Concept:

This mini glass bowl artwork comes from the collection “the Four Gentlemen – Crystal Bowl,” which is an artistic motif dating back to the Song Dynasty.  In this literary theme, the four seasons of the year are each represented by their most characteristic flower.  As with winter, the titular flower of autumn is also one which blooms amidst decay and death.  That flower—the chrysanthemum—bursts into life in amber and golden hues while all other flowers are fading and withering.  In this way, it is both a bittersweet nostalgia and a reflective melancholy.  The design in this work shows the exquisitely sculpted low-relief details of the many petals of a chrysanthemum flower in the warm glow of autumn.

The Chrysanthemum Gentleman

Undiscriminating, in the heat of spring and summer,
The chrysanthemum unselfishly spreads its scent and beauty.
Blooming a hundred flowers,
To become the friend of virtuous men.
Claret red tinged with crad-shell pink, the ultimate meaning.

菊君子

同樣承受春夏之露
卻無意一爭芳菲
獨放百花之後
成為清遠者的朋友
碧醪陪蟹紅,多麼有意
