The Delegation from The Palace Museum
September 12, 2015
Director Song and her accompany was welcomed by Mr.Zhanglin, the president of Shanghai Museum of Glass and visited the main museum, hot glass performance hall, KIDS museum of glass, Glaze Gallery. They gave full affirmation to the brilliant exhibitions and activities SHMOG has held since its establishment, praised highly of its huge contribution in the glass art field, offered some constructive suggestions and encouraged SHMOG to hold its philosophy of “share the infinite possibility of glass” and bring constant visual feast to every audience.
The lecture was kicked off by Teacher Deng Bin, and he stated his connection with kintsukuroi and the handcrafts. Through the different cases that are repaired, the audience can sense the loneness of the technique. Teacher Yuhui first started from different repairing methods, and then introduced the related repairing knowledge through the known repairing case of Portland bottle. She displayed the whole process of repairing hairpins through detailed pictures and full explanation, publicizing the basic rules and thoughts of restoration of culture relics. Kintsukuroi is full of casual and natural art feelings, and restoration of culture relics is precise and method-oriented, but the two ways are different methods to repairing glass hairpins.
The two-hour lecture was rewarding for audience, and they asked questions after the lecture and interacted with each other actively. Let’s look forward to the next great activity.
