Bronze Busts: Whole Figure Sculpture Commissions
Capturing both Spirit & Likeness

You are interested in a whole figure sculpture commission? Mantelpiece, lifesize or monumental...

  2. Formal commission: you confirm to me the commission in writing by e-mail or mail and you send an initial payment - usually one third of the total amount and a start date is agreed on.

    Prices for a whole figure sculpture commission vary according to size (lifesize sculpture, or larger than lifesize, i.e. monumental sculpture or mantel piece size), whether the figurative sculpture is for a home garden (private residence) or for display in a public space.

  3. Moulding & Casting the artwork: The sculpture is cast in the foundry,and I rework the piece at the wax stage (there is always some finishing required as there is a limit to wet clay as a material and some details are best worked in the wax).

  4. Patination & Base: I supervise the patination process in the foundry and mount the sculpture portrait onto a base if appropriate.

  5. Delivery/Shipment: Finally, upon completion of the work in bronze, I supervise the shipment of the work to the installation site.Unveiling of a lifeisze figure sculpture commission in public space

  6. Timescale: Estimated time from first sitting to finished lifesize whole figure sculpture 2-4 weeks (for one figure). Foundry work takes 4-6 weeks and shipment depends upon which foundry I use and the location of installation.   Location is never a problem - I travel all over the world for sculpture portrait commissions.
Note that all such commissions can be executed in bronze or other media (such as marble or granite) to your requirements.
