Mouth-blown glass, a glass-forming technique that involves inflating molten glass into a bubble with the aid of a blowpipe or a blow tube. Glassblowing, since ancient times, has been known as the art of creating decorative glass by manipulating molten glass which artist Seiki Torige has mastered. Lotus Arts de Vivre and Seiki Torige, in an artistic collaboration, co-created this piece. While master craftsman Seiki combined his skilled artistry to create the glass design, Lotus Arts de Vivre carefully mastered working with Sterling silver to craft the Silver embellishment.
As a spirit animal, the meaning for the tiger is said to be total willpower, courage, and personal strength. Some recognize tigers and dragons as powerful symbols representing the balanced forces of yin and yang. The Chinese god of wealth, Tsai Shen Yeh, is often shown sitting on top of a tiger to emphasize his power. In Chinese culture, tigers are seen as the guardian of children.
