The Others About Us. Publication on Webstage.bg, October 28, 2017

 

 

 

When 26 years ago Nikolay Zografov decided to dedicate himself to his fine art, he did not anticipate that years later his creations would belong to presidents, diplomats, aristocrats, artists, and famous personalities from around the world. His talented hands sculpt perfect compositions from noble metals and exotic wood, transforming objects into true works of art.

 

 

 

 

The Zografov family itself has its own centuries-old impressive history. Nikolay's great-grandfather, Bozhin-Emanoil Stimen Zograf, participated in the iconography of the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome. Today, the artistic spirit and family traditions continue their journey through time, involving his wife Tiziana and son Lyubomir in the work.

 

The family company "Zografov and Son" specializes in the design and crafting of luxury gifts, created with exceptional elegance and attention to detail. Driven by the desire to provide an unforgettable experience for their clients, the Zografovs create masterpieces in various forms and for various occasions. From ritual wine glasses suitable for weddings, baptisms, and communions, to exquisite vessels, utensils, and glasses for brandy, whiskey, and champagne, their works follow the noble line of their mission - to deliver delight and evoke emotions.

 

 

 

 

Gold, silver, copper, and exotic wood give birth to this exciting choreography of precision, craftsmanship, authenticity, and luxury. Tiziana Zografova shares that the combination of the living material - wood, and the noble metal is the most challenging to execute. Wood constantly breathes, while metal remains unchanged. It is very difficult to devise a technology where the two are always together, not separating, not even creating fine gaps between them. The treatment of wood is done using a special technology that has proven its qualities over time. Our son Lyubomir has enriched the family business with many new ideas, models, a contemporary vision, craftsmanship, and technologies.

 

 

 

 

Lyubomir Zografov shares that over the years, the most sought-after pieces they create may change, but the occasion for the gift always remains the leading factor. Their readiness to discuss every detail with the client, together, to add uniqueness to the future work and bring pleasure to its recipient, is paramount. They strive to be unique and offer quality. It is important for them that the finished product evokes positive emotions. Therefore, everything is tailored to the client's desires, making them feel that the piece is intended and created especially for them. This is also reflected in the packaging - the gift is accompanied by a delicate metal message, a certificate of authenticity, a pair of gloves, and instructions on how to use it. Each creation bears the original imprint of "Zografov and Son."

 

Speaking about the people who can appreciate and afford their luxury creations, Lyubomir shares that they are all very different. Among their most loyal customers are bakers, politicians, lawyers, brokers, high-ranking businessmen - people with taste who appreciate the art of craftsmanship, quality, and luxury, and have a higher standard of living. Recently, there has been an increased interest from IT sector professionals who not only appreciate the merits of expensive artworks but also infuse antiquity with new original ideas. One client contacted us with a desire to craft a silver jug - a completely clean and minimalist design. We discussed how he envisioned it, and in the end, the simple pitcher, familiar to all of us from a certain time, transformed into an elegant silver water jug. This is how our new models usually come to life - with the desire and idea of the client," shares Lyubomir Zografov.

 

 

 

 

At the core of this luxury brand beats the heart of art, transforming the primary craftsmanship of extracting noble metals into a perfect act. All creations of "Zografov and Son" are elegant enough to take a pride of place in the home, yet they are joyfully used in daily life - the technology by which they are made allows for this. Many of them are designed to satisfy "indulgent" habits - sipping from a glass made of walnut wood while the gold offers a luxurious sanctuary for amber whiskey is not only enjoyable but also beautiful. Those who enjoy tobacco and cigars can find a worthy accessory for their delicate art, steeped in rituals.

 

 

 

 

The jewellery creations of Zografov and Son have long surpassed the borders of Bulgaria, gifting the world a piece of our rich cultural heritage. Replicas of the magnificent ancient vessels from the Rogozen Treasure and the Thracian mound "Golyama Kosmatka" are now owned by high political leaders, presidents, aristocrats, diplomats, luminaries in science and art, and actors.

 

 

 

 

Specifically for the foundation "Center for Global Dialogue and Cooperation" of President Petar Stoyanov (1997-2002), "Zografov and Son" crafted awards presented to the American President Bill Clinton, actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie, and chess champion Anatoly Karpov.

 

 

 

 

Beyond official protocols, the valuable treasures of Zografov and Son find their new homes far in Japan, Australia, the Philippines, and the USA. Ancient, contemporary, patinated, or gleaming to perfection, they carry the spirit of authentic art and a fragment of the soul of their master - as a gift for eternity.

It is interesting and remarkable how much history and how many artifacts there are in a territory as small as Bulgaria. During each excavation, archaeologists find a piece of the life of our ancestors. We are a nation with a rich past, and that is priceless. All these discoveries made by archaeologists are changing scientists' perceptions of the oldest centers of human civilization. The historical artifacts prove that a civilization flourished on the territory of Bulgaria long before the Hellenic one. A culture existed which created items of high artistic value.
