Dishes beat not only to happiness, but also to new clothes. The Peking artist and sculptor is sure of this, creating masterpieces from fragments of Chinese imperial porcelain.
Designer creativity Li Xiaofeng is a modern Chinese art born from ancient traditions. A Beijing-based painter and sculptor transforms shards of porcelain and ceramics from Chinese dynasties into stunning garments. Thus, broken dishes become an object of contemporary art.
The idea to create clothes from historical artifacts came about when Lee began to study landscape depictions on ancient porcelain shards. So, gradually, unique dresses, suits, shirts, jackets, ties and hats from the fragments of the found porcelain bowls began to appear.
Of course, the process of creating such unusual clothes is very complicated and time consuming. First, Lee sorts the shards by color, shape, and time of origin, because the price of the product will depend on this. By the way, the first porcelain dress was sold at one of the exhibitions for 85 thousand dollars.
Lee then creates a sketch and starts working with the material. Each shard is carefully polished, and then small holes are drilled along the edges, through which the fragments are connected to each other with silver wire. The porcelain is attached to a leather frame or underwear.
All of Lee's outfits open at the back or side, so they can be worn and worn like regular clothing. And to complement such an unusual image will help fashion porcelain platform shoes.
