MEDIA  Sculptures are executed in clay, which can be fired or transitioned into a range of cast or carved materials. The main differences between these end products involve durability, material costs, and one-of-a-kind pieces vs. the production of multiples. In addition to portraits of people, other subject matter is possible (animals, architecture, etc.).

COST  Prices for custom work vary with size, material, complexity, and quantity. A 1/3 initial deposit (non-refundable) is requested to begin work, 1/3 is due upon approval of the model or design, and the final 1/3 due at the time the piece is shipped or delivered. Contact us to draw up a custom quote.

PROCEDURE  Work can be done from life as well as from photographic reference. The initial meeting often involves choosing a pose or design and may entail photographing the subject. Additional studio visits or correspondence provide opportunities for client feedback during the creation phase.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?  The length of the process depends upon any backlog of projects, the scope and ambition of the work, and coordination with third parties (such as a foundry).
