Crystal Decor, Bitter Melon, Bittersweet

$920.00

The Collection: ENRICH

Design Concept:

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.

一颗苦瓜,似悬在湖心,汲取源源的浩气,是天地孕育的一个精华,生命力的凝聚。是苦瓜,却觉悟了人间甘美。作品中心镂空一个圆,圆周边和底部,环绕丝丝琉纹,是一个源源循环不断的生命力。底座高高立起,承托上方凝聚的甘美,是那么神圣庄严。顶部缠绕的瓜藤,开出的花,圆中缀着的苦瓜,表现整个生命生长的过程。用绿透的琉璃,呈现一颗细微苦瓜的鲜嫩欲滴;高难度的雕刻工艺,细緻表现苦瓜每一粒的凸起,表现天地造物的用心和我们的敬畏。先苦后甘、苦尽甘来,对中国人来说,苦瓜是一种超脱的生命反省,完美地呈现生命歷程。清·画家石涛,就以“苦瓜和尚”自称,呈现心境的歷练磨难。苦瓜,是一颗日磨月磋出来的仙果,就像人生在不断觉醒后,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
孕一颗苦瓜
道是苦
竟是甘美

人间永是
甘苦之中
悟觉
天地禅味
