here if you would like to request a quote for a custom
or bronze sculpture
can be ordered in plated or glazed ceramic, in lost wax
cast bronze, or in cast granite. The main differences between
these three mediums is that ceramic produces a one of a kind
sculpture that is breakable. Cast granite is a hard material
(used to make high end counter tops) and is very sturdy, although
it can break if dropped. Cast bronze is considerably more expensive
to produce and results in a virtually indestructible sculpture
of molten metal.
copies can be made at a substantially reduced cost
since the modeling and moldmaking for these will have already
been done for the first copy. You may also order additional
granite copies (for your office perhaps, or to give as gifts)
of a piece that was molded for bronze.
custom work vary greatly (from $2,500 to $50,000+) and will
increase with size (available from 1/3 to 2X scale (30 - 200%)),
material (ceramic, cold cast, or bronze) and complexity. Inclusions
can consist of head and neck, upper
chest, torso, full body,
two individuals in one piece, or the inclusion of a pet,
doll, or piece of furniture.
bases are standard, but marble, granite, or rotating bases
can be ordered. Dog
portraits are available as well and price will depend
on material, size, complexity, and inclusions.

I request a 1/3 initial deposit (non-refundable) to begin, 1/3 upon approval
of the clay model, and the final 1/3 at the time the piece is ready to ship or
hand deliver (local clients). During the creation
process, I'll send digital photos for your review and approval and
I will not send a piece to be cast until I obtain approval from you to do so.
is currently a waiting list to begin any new commissions.
