Commissioning a sculpture is easier than you might think, and starts with an informal chat
A Simple 3-Step Process
During our initial, obligation-free chat I do my best to find out what you have in mind. This could be a rough idea, a strict budget, an idea of the size or a specific location the work needs to fit. You may have a highly developed idea of what you want or conversely you might wish me to produce ideas for you. Although I specialise in animals and pets (specifically dogs, cats and rabbits) sculptures of homes, or nature and landscape, I’m happy to discuss any ideas you may have, likewise if you’ve seen a specific work of mine and would like to commission something similar.
If you decide to proceed we can exchange ideas and discuss design. Prior to producing any drawings, I ask for a deposit to secure the commission. I start with ideas/plans of what can be created. I will require good quality images for reference and will provide initial rough sketches.
I will give a basic time frame for completion of the work. It is entirely dependent on the size and complexity, and other deadlines I have. If it is needed for a specific time I’ll do my utmost to accommodate, and I advise you to get in touch well in advance.
Once we’ve agreed terms, you’re happy and a 50% deposit is paid, I will start the creation of your sculpture. I record the process, and keep you regularly updated with photographs and information as I work so you will be reassured everything is proceeding satisfactorily.
The remaining 50% is paid on completion of the final work. I can include the cost of tracked and insured shipping with your initial quote, if required.
