A designer's dream come true..
The concept of Esculpta came to life in 2006 in Athens, Greece by the label's chief-designer, Nikias. A fourth generation jeweler, silversmith and antique dealer, the interest and ability for Nikias to develop his skills in traditional high-quality jewelry manufacture would come without question by the age of 28 when esculpta came into being.
The esculpta range was clearly a part of a greater philosophy - within each individual piece underlied all the qualities of an intimate wearable work of art. And by wearable.. we mean in all sorts of exciting ways and his vision was to use his knowledge and skills for something less ordinary.
This was more like a quest to fully address the deep relationship with jewelry that had been passed down to him. On a philosophical level this would be the challenge of understanding the human relationship to beautiful adornments called jewelry and the pre-historic instinctive desire of man for jewelry.
What was it exactly from ancient Greeks and Etruscans to the modern man, from kings, to the poorest of the poor, that attracted all men alike with fascination to the wearing of jewels, or beads or colored stones? An attraction so consistent and so strong throughout the ages would have to be embedded somewhere in human DNA. Nikias' gut feeling was that 'eroticism' was at the heart of this archetypical trait..
So already with a plethora of cultural references, rich with knowledge of ancient Greek manufacturing techniques and skills, Nikias endeavored to design and prototype objects and manufacture new original ideas in his work. From this point there was only one thing to do, in order to honor 'the gods and the Greek muses' that had blessed him with his creativity, making his vision come true.. this was to give birth to a freshly innovative and unique range of erotic jewelry!
From the beginning, this initiative was met great acceptance as it pioneered a dynamic and stylish approach to the taboo subject of cock-rings. According to Nikias' insight on this success in an interview in 2009 "most of the existing cock-rings on the market were cheap, quite tacky and would inevitably be found in adult-stores.. making the whole matter inevitably a bit sleezy". Meanwhile his background and sheer skill in creating beautiful pieces clearly demonstrated that this was nothing that originated from the sex-toy industry, nor in fact a concept that could be compared to anything ever marketed before.. In the designers eyes, there was no reason why something potentially beautiful would have to be taboo or additionally that a contemporary stylish man should shop for beautiful jeans, hot underwear and refined perfume, but when it came to his most 'prized assets', should settle for any less.
By applying his extensive research on ancient jewelry themes and highly-demanding jewelry-making techniques, the designs resulting from his work became what many consider today to be true works of art.
Within very little time, after the launch from Greece in 2006, the tiny and new label of esculpta began to pick up lots of attention and fans from numerous countries and to be featured by trend-seeking publications and lifestyle magazines around the world, while also dynamically expanding its customer base and introducing more inspired designs. In contrast to popular opinion, despite that Cock-Rings are traditionally considered a "gay thing", Nikias' creations for esculpta are purchased by gay and straight men alike.
Today, considered by many to be the Magnum Opus of cock rings, Esculpta fans are avid in the USA from San Francisco (the new home of esculpta-USA) to Fort Lauderdale and from New York to Texas.
The overwhelmingly positive reception we have received from discerning men worldwide led us to open our San Francisco, CA office in January, 2011. We are proud to offer an exceptional shopping and service experience to our customers in North America, Europe and beyond.
Sources of inspiration..
Inspired by the timeless forms of the Byzantine & Roman Empires, and using with museum quality prototypes, hand-carved by skilled and devoted craftsmen, each item is historically researched in its style and rhythm. Esculpta cock-rings are not mass-produced like most things today but are made with love inspired by an era when machines did not do all the work and when quality was genuine and applied to jewelry as a true form of art.
Esculpta offers several distinct cock-ring lines, each more striking and exquisite than the next. Whether its a striking presentation piece to showcase your... inner Dionysus (Le Cock Ring V) or whether its a set of exquisite sterling silver lions heads (Le Cock Ring I) offering a snuggly fit around your jewels, its definitely a work of art!
Made from precious metals and stones, sterling silver, gold, diamonds, rubies and sapphires, the jewels embody the finest elements of design, distinction & desire. "Allow your passion to mark its presence on your every moment, however private or intimate, with a piece of art from Esculpta".
