COMMISSIONS / FIGURATIVE / ABSTRACT
Figurative and abstact sculptures come in all shapes and sizes. Some can take a day, others many weeks or months. I accept commissions from small pieces for your home or office to larger work for gardens and monuments. My work is cast either in plaster, resin, bonded stone or bronze.
On accepting a commission, I require a preliminary meeting in my studio, your home or office to become acquainted with you and discuss your ideas and requirements. Cost will depend on complexity and size. Included in the overall fee will be design ideas in sketch or photographic form, and the use of models if required. Life size pieces or larger require the creation of a small-scale version 'Maquette' of how the sculpture will look before progressing to the full size version and will be reflected in the fee.
An informal contract will be drawn between artist and client, outlining what has been discussed and a quote for the total work. On commencement of the sculpture I will ask for a third of the agreed fee in advance. On completion and acceptance of the clay I will ask for the second instalment with the remaining balance to be paid in full upon delivery of the completed sculpture.
If a bronze cast is requested then please allow up to 90 days from completion of the clay, as the foundry may be busy.
Mark oversees all aspects of the casting to ensure that the utmost quality is maintained throughout.
