Note: 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.
- 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).
& Base: I supervise the patination process
in the foundry and mount the sculpture portrait onto a base if
- Delivery/Shipment: Finally,
upon completion of the work in bronze, I
supervise the shipment of the work to the installation site.
- 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.
