I have been trying to find out some further information on the Taiwanese glass artist Wang Xiajun who I gather is also referenced online as Wan Xiajun, due to anglicised variations.
The majority of information available online is in Chinese and the online translations are almost harder to decipher than the original Chinese text! I gather that Wang Xiahun was born in 1953 and has been influential in the development of Chinese art glass over recent years, with works in the corning museum of glass amongst others.
The piece in question is marked to the base as shown below, as I understand has the ‘Liu Yuan’ Glass Studio mark followed by ‘Wan Xiajun’ and then ‘2001.1 - 149/766 which I gather is possibly the year then followed by the number of pieces produced.
A large example weighing 4233 grams and measuring 7 inches tall and 7 inches wide.
Any further information would be greatly received.
