Here we go. Tommy has announced that he wants you, the fans to decide which bottle he chooses for his signature fragrance “Drumbeat.”
This design comes from the famous Icelandic sculptor Olafur Eliasson, who used a full body cast made of Belgian molding wax in which he immersed Tommy into a vat of warm wax making the mold.
“I wanted to capture Tommy’s strength as a man and as an artist,” said Eliasson “I am pleased with the outcome and only hope he chooses my vision for “Drumbeat.”
“It was great working with Olafur,” said Tommy. “We sent ideas back and forth and I was able to meet him in a studio in Orlando and really liked what he was doing. If this one is selected, I will be happy with that.”
Option # 2 is a simple design that conveys the simplicity of a simple beat. Designed by London’s Matt Knox, this bottle is something in which rock fans across the globe can identify. The seamless lines of the cylinder shape take from the symmetry of a bass drum. The backbone of Tommy’s drum kit.
To those who have seen Tommy Craig play live, you realize right away that the soul of his artistry is the bass unit,” said Knox. “So I wanted to incorporate that into the design. I think it is rather stunning in its simplicity to be honest.”
“I like it,” added Tommy.
In what Thai artist Kae Chonglada calls the ‘Black Knight” may be the one most innovative designs for a fragrance yet. Known for her ‘Modern Asian Watercolors”, Chonglada wanted to do something bold and yet sexy.
I enjoy symbolism and listening to Tommy’s work I knew what I heard. Walter (Bruning) was very instrumental in getting me this opportunity and I was thankful for the chance to work on something outside of my comfort zone. ”
“What Kae did with this is simply spectacular. I am glad the fans are choosing.” said Tommy. ” Going to be some hard decisions made for sure.”
Added Walter, “I think Kae’s work speaks for itself. Very talented and I hoped she gets the nod.”
