This crystal magnolia flower artwork is another beloved favorite of the Chinese. As if to announce the arrival of spring after a long winter, the Magnolia has traditionally bloomed on-queue at the first full moon of the year. It’s long been associated in Chinese culture as a symbol of love among families and friends. This design is inspired by the philosophy of “a full moon and beautiful flowers”. Sculpted with the characteristic roundness that symbolizes good harmony and fulfillment. The large polished surface represents the moon as it reflects the flowers. The magnolia is first colored with powdered pigments to create a realistic effect. Then it is fired again and fused with the vase. This is a token of families’ and friends’ appreciation for one another and of the harmony that connects us all. View the self through flowers, view the world through a vase. Through the elegance of the magnolia, we are shown the stillness in movement.
