LIULI Crystal Art Crystal Sake Glass "The Virtuous Plum Blossom" in Royal Purple Clear (Limited Edition)

$236.00
Article number: PDG018.ADA
Availability: In stock

This glass art piece of a regal wineglass comes from LIULI’s sake glass art series “A Drink Under Clear Skies” in which each piece, inspired by classical Chinese literature’s “Four Gentlemen,” takes after a season of the year.  The plum blossom, depicted here in brilliant low relief, delineates winter in particular for its ability to thrive and blossom in the most unforgiving and coldest of conditions.  In the bleak harshness of this season, the plum blossom sits delicately yet strongly atop its tree’s branches, blooming against all odds.  In “Under Clear Skies,” the glasswork pairs this seasonal sentiment with the sacred ritual of drinking.

 

The Collection: A Drink Under Clear Skies

 

The Virtuous Plum Blossom

The shade of flowers,
A sliver of moon,
A decanter of wine,
An annual snow.
Drink and feast amongst nature,
Not even a thousand drinks can measure up to
The recitation of Unmoving Clouds by poet Tao Yuanming.

梅飲

一花蔭
一盞月
一壺酒溫
一歲雪
宴飲山風
千杯少
一曲停雲陶淵明
