Sculpted by Carrol in 2017, the Dreamer Sculpture is a first of its kind in the Carrol Boyes collection as a non-functional collector’s art piece.
Carrol sculpted this elegant figure purely with the vision for it to compliment the launch of the Carrol Boyes Ethereal Bath and Body Collection in stores, never intending for the design to be a part of her official range. Demand followed, and the unexpected journey of creating a limited-edition sculptural range ensued.
Carrol sculpted Dreamer in her seaside home in Cape Town. Soon after being aware of the project, her protégés; Madi, Greg and Lyndi swayed her to make it accessible to loyal Carrol Boyes collectors. Carrol agreed to add the captivating piece to the Carrol Boyes product collection. Both Lyndi and Greg worked closely with Carrol to see the project through to completion. After Carrol’s unexpected passing in August 2019, the project was stalled. However, the art department was determined to launch this extraordinary piece, and worked tirelessly to ‘awaken the Dreamer’…
“We are thrilled to finally reveal Carrol’s Dreamer. This sculpture launches as her first official non-functional art piece – a piece created with delight purely as an artistic expression,’’ comments Lyndi. ‘’We recognise the Dreamer as an embodiment of Carrol's legacy as an Artist and Sculptor.’
In celebration of this, Carrol’s Artists proceeded to engrave her signature on each piece. Each sculpture will also be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and will be artfully boxed.
We are immensely pleased to release this limited-edition range in honour of Carrol - a Dreamer who dared to live wide awake in pursuit of her creative vision.
