[dropcap]C[/dropcap]rystal Caviar, as per its tradition, cooperates with many Czech and also world artists and designers on its projects and has just finished a brand new crystal sculpture with Igor Lobanov, author of futuristic design of Ship STAR and designer of the striking exteriors of Oceanco’s outstanding superyacht JUBILEE.
Ship Star should be the craziest and the most beautiful ship which will sail on the sea. It reminds a half of the star floating on the sea level. More than 130m long superyacht has an absolutely unique design which does not remind any other superyacht which has been built till today. The main goal during the creation of the sculpture was to capture the uniqueness of the yacht design and transfer it into the crystal sculpture.
“Mr. Igor Lobanov likes to do things which no one has ever done before him. And this fact we have in common. That is why I addressed a proposal to Mr. Lobanov of making a crystal sculpture according to his remarkable project of Ship Star. I think that the sculpture is as beautiful as the yacht will be” says Marek Landa, owner of the Crystal Caviar company.
The sculpture is made from pure Bohemian crystal, melted in mould according to the clay model and ground and polished to final look. Thanks to the material it is possible to see a magical game of light and many light reflections inside of the sculpture. It was made in cooperation with young Czech glass artist Mr. Jaroslav Prošek who helped with the technique of glass processing.
Mr. Igor Lobanov is not the first yacht designer with whom Crystal Caviar company has collaborated. The company also created a unique series of crystal sculptures with award- winning yacht designer Mr. Tim Heywood and luxury yacht designer Jacques Pierrejean. Tim Heywood’s sculpture called simply “Titan Yacht” was in 2013 the first ever crystal sculpture in the world inspired by superyacht. The sculpture was made from pure Bohemian crystal and coated with titanium. It was presented at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2013 and was sold only couple of days after its display. Last year Tim Heywood with Crystal Caviar finished another glass sculpture and nowadays are finishing another two sculptures.
Jacques Pierrejean with Crystal Caviar created a pair of stunning crystal sculptures called Yas Yacht which were inspired by 140m MY Yas. Both sculptures are made from pure Bohemian crystal and are placed on stainless steel pedestals. One of them in matt version, the second is in crystal clear version.
