To revive the lost art of Chinese liuli, esteemed Taiwanese film director Chang Yi founded LIULIGONGFANG with artist Loretta H. Yang. The New York Times has dubbed Chang"Father of the Asia Studio Glass Movement". Chang's vision unites contemporary liuli art with traditional craft art through a cultural lens. His efforts have established LIULIGONGFANG as a global leader and advocate of liuli art. Chang Yi's unique perspective on life has been influenced by his lifelong battle with vascular lesions. He treats liuli as a courier for love and death, reality and illusion, light and shadow, complete resplendence and shattered disillusionment. Chang Yi's style is uninhibited and free-spirited; he bestows his work with boundless possibilities and looks to literature and Zen Buddhism as his creative guides.
