Founded in 1987 by artists Loretta H. Yang and Chang Yi, LIULI has grown from a modest workshop in Taiwan to Asia’s leading crystal art brand. Liuli is the phonetic spelling of the Han Dynasty term for glass art and is used to honor the Chinese heritage and culture. Records show that thousands of years ago, the Chinese were highly skilled in pâte de verre (lost wax casting) but the craft was subsequently forgotten. Yang and Chang revived the craft and reintroduced it into the international arena.
Today, LIULI has more than 40 galleries worldwide, Loretta’s and Chang Yi’s artworks are collected at more than 35 museums around the world. These include the Victoria and Albert museum in London, the Corning Museum of Glass in New York, The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C., and the Bowers Museum in Orange County, California. LIULI has received multiple awards, some of which are iF Design and German Red Dot.
