Miscellaneous Services

Additional services are available for Artists:

  • Custom Base Making  

Original Hardwood Base Designs by Gary Maiers

Handcrafted bases include your choice of fine hardwood, shape, size, routed edge, and stain -  with a satin or gloss finish.  Custom, rnamental brass name plates are optional and can be shipped attached to the base at the location you desire. (See wood samples.)

 

 

  • Firing Service 

Available for local artists, I can fire your ceramic sculpture anywhere from cone 018 to cone 6 and am limited to 27 inch maximum height or width. Although I have over 20 years firing experience, I can make no guarantees that your piece will come out perfectly without breakage. Repair service also available if needed.

 

 

  • Finishing Service 

Finish your fired piece by applying a simple or complex patina. Patinas for ceramic pieces can be simple wax finishes, or complex metallic patinas with many layers of metal coatings, dyes, acids, and waxes.  Finishing service includes mounting and mounting hardware if a custom base has been ordered. 

 

 

If you are an artist without a website (or would like your current one redesigned), you can contact me to discuss this service. You provide the photos and content, I'll design the website on your host web space. Presentation only, no forms or interactive web pages. (See details )

 

As much as I love seeing other people's work, I do not offer critique services, either paid or otherwise. Please, please, please do not send me photos of your work and ask for a free critique. You can, however, email me to join the forum where you may get valuable information and post your photos for feedback from any forum member who wishes to comment. Thanks for your consideration!
