Carol Bruton was commissioned to create the sculpture 'OCEAN’S 9' for the RICHARD EARP AWARD 2018
This was presented during The Superyacht Show in Barcelona to Peter Insull for his significant contribution to the superyacht industry. The Richard Earp Award is an annual prize presented by the Large Yacht Brokers Association (LYBRA) and MYBA The Worldwide Yachting Association, as a tribute to Richard Earp’s gentlemanly conduct and integrity in dealing with colleagues and clients. Nominees are judged on transparency, fair and ethical behaviour, charisma and style.
The International Superyacht Society was proud to be the Official Partner of The Richard Earp Award 2018 and Norma Trease was in attendance to hand over the award on behalf of Captain AJ Anderson, the current President. Nathalie Earp, Richard’s daughter, and his grandson were also in attendance to mark the special occasion.
The award itself is literally a work of art; a beautiful, timeless sculpture called “Ocean’s 9” created and generously donated by artist Carol Bruton. Light moves across the sculpture, mimicking the ever-changing patterns in the ocean.

Roy's People Art Fair 2018 Interview with Carol Bruton
“Some weekends in London are definitely brighter than others”, – I think to myself whilst admiring radiant colours of the bubbly circles on the wall at Roy’s People Art Fair. These sculptures have come all the way from the South of France – I learn that when the artist Carol Bruton starts telling me about how swimming in the Mediterranean Sea evokes creativity in her.
