Frequent Asked Questions
Do you need to work from life?
Ideally yes, but equally I can work just from photos.
How many sittings will you need and what do they entail?
If possible up to 4 sittings of 3-4 hours each over a period of approximately 8 weeks. I can either come to you or the sittings can be at my studio in East Sussex.
How much say do I have in the pose and the sculpture?
You can have as much or as little say as you would like. I normally expect to discuss various options on pose and to ask for your feedback as to what you would prefer and consider the end location of the work. You can also make suggestions as the sculpture progresses. It is important that you are happy-as far as I am aware I have not had any unhappy clients!
What happens when it is finished in clay?
Once the clay work is completed it will be shown to you to check you are happy for me to proceed with the bronze casting.
How long does the casting take?
The casting process will take about 8 weeks (unless it is large scale in which case it can take from 3-4 months).
How much will it cost?
I quote on an individual basis as each commission is different.
How do you expect payment?
Payment is normally split into three, a third at the start, a third when the clay is 'signed off' prior to casting and the final third on delivery.
