Liuigongfang was established in Tamshui, Taiwan in 1987 as Asia’s first Liuli workshop and stands today as Asia’s largest Liuli arts brand. Loretta Hui-shan Yang and Chang Yi are the co-founders of Liuligongfang and lead the brand as Creative Director and Brand Manager respectively.
Liuligongfang operates 70 galleries around the world. Since in 1987, the company has expanded throughout Taiwan, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore and Malaysia. 2008 brought the first two stateside galleries in San Francisco and New York.
Over twenty-two years, Liuligongfang creations have been acquired by internationally renowned museums for their permanent collections and Liuligongfang works have been exhibited in over 30 countries and territories. At least 32 world leaders have received the gifts that are made from Liuligongfang series works; Liuligongfang collection was once bestowed upon VIP members of the Annual Academy Awards and Grammy Awards.
In the span of twenty years, Liuligongfang has opened the doors for and given new life to the lost art of Chinese Liuli. Through untiring experimentation, Yang and Chang went from pâte-de-verre novices to experts in the field. Their emphasis has always been on Chinese culture and history and in terms of the value of craft, has always insisted on a hands-on approach.
Liuligongfang’s launching point is always in the aspect of material. They scrutinize the myriad of possibilities held by contemporary lifestyle design and push Liuli to pass the boundaries of accessory and craft to incorporate it into modern culture and life.
