The Virtuous Orchid (A Drink Under Clear Skies) - Sake Glass, Shot Glass

$410.00

This glass art piece of a sumptuous Chinese wineglass is one of four in LIULIs sake glass series titled “A Drink under Clear Skies.”  The collection is inspired by the classical Chinese literature’s “Four Gentlemen” motif, in which flowers (or plants) represent the seasons of the year.  In “Virtuous Orchid,” the pure bliss of spring is characteristically revealed through its long blades of grass and flower petals dancing in the wind.  This image is sculpted in low relief on the crystal piece here, standing out verdantly with the effulgent blends of green used.  In “Under Clear Skies,” the glasswork juxtaposes these feelings with the act of drinking and paying homage to the seasons.

 

The Collection: A Drink Under Clear Skies

 

The Virtuous Orchid

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.

兰饮

一花荫
一盏月
一壶酒温
一岁雪
宴饮山风
千杯少
一曲停云陶渊明
