Crystal Feng Shui, Gourd, Hulu, Well of Fortune

$730.00

The Collection: Buoyed by Spring Light

Design Concept:

Without the four seasons, there can be no year.  Without just one season there could be no cycle.  In this classic rendition from our spring-inspired collection, “Buoyed by Spring Light,” four hulu gourds converge from their four respective cardinal compass directions.  Adorned with baroque-like embellishments of floral patterns, they invoke a calming and contented feeling of fullness, fulfillment, and richness.  Steeped in rich cultural motifs, this classic liuli glasswork carries with it millennia of artistic tradition, a symbol of the grand and never-ending orchestra that is nature’s spring season.

The Chinese word for gourd, hulu (葫芦), has other auspicious associations as well.  In some dialects, the character hu (葫) has a similar pronunciation to fu (福) which means "happiness" or "good fortune".  Therefore, saying hulu (葫 芦) for gourd would sound similar to fulu (福禄) which means "happiness and rank (as in attaining a high government office)". 

葫芦,取福与禄的好口彩。

作品《四方聚福禄》,取古典的如意造型。四个葫芦,有四方齐聚,八面承纳福禄之意,在美学上,对称的体现,亦展一种和谐之美。

设计上,葫芦瓶口溢彩朵朵的牡丹花瓣,牡丹,素有富贵圆满的花语,作品源源盛满的牡丹花瓣,寓意花开圆满,美好不虞的祝愿。作品颜色的晕染,丝丝入扣,循序递进,高浮雕的造型,让葫芦与牡丹花瓣高低层叠,环环相扣,琉璃的厚薄变化,让作品在光影下,又呈另番风景,是既立体又极具现代的创作风格。
