Swarovski, Innsbruck: Crystal-studded Christmas Deer

 

Season:
Christmas

Location:
Insbrook

Project type:
Design, Production

We were very excited to work on this commission to create a life size reindeer with oversized antlers for Swarovski.

Working on the 3D cutting file, we sculpted a beautiful female standing deer, cut in polystyrene and resin-coated with a super matt arctic white paint finish.

The deer had an internal steel skeleton framework, built to hold the vast weight of the Antlers. The antlers were fabricated by the blacksmith to give them a real sculptural and natural feel. These 6 metre long antlers were then meticulously covered with millions of three millimetre facet-cut iridescent Swarovski crystals. Stunning!
