The Czech Republic has been internationally recognized for producing high quality glass, as well as craftsmanship and innovative designs with the material. This long-standing tradition greatly nourished Chinese artist Zhu Liyue when she studied at the country's Kamenicky Senov Glass School from 2009 to 2012.

For more than a decade, Zhu has incorporated what she learned from Czech glassmaking philosophy with her Chinese cultural DNA in the creation of her eye-pleasing glass works.

At her ongoing exhibition in Beijing's 798 art district, Invisible Dialog, Zhu shares her explorations to bring out the illusive beauty of glass and a magic play of light and shadow. It runs at the Ici Labas gallery through July 1.

The Lake series features light flowing and graceful positions of lotus flowers, remitting a touch of poetry and tranquility. The As Sweet as Sugars series conveys a warm feeling. The Heavenly Book series dwells on the variations of Chinese characters.

Lights at the exhibition are only cast upon these transparent objects to create enthralling shadows on the wall, which Zhu says makes her works complete.
