Sculpture Commission Process
In order to prepare a sculpture commission proposal and a quote, I prefer to do an initial consultation with the clients and do a site visit to discuss the requirements, site conditions, materials, budget and timeline.
When creating any sculpture for a client, it is important to know what inspires them and to discuss which elements of my sculptural work appeals, so that I can create a truly special sculpture to compliment their home or business.
Initial Consultations and Site Visits
To create a sculpture that is unique to each client, the following elements will be discussed during the initial consultation.
- Why do you want to commission a unique sculpture?
- What is the scale of the available area for the sculpture?
- Which materials would you like the sculpture to be created with?
- How much is the budget range?
After the initial consultation, a proposal is presented with concept outline, sketches, scaled drawings, materials, time lines and proposed costs.
At this stage the concept is discussed with the client and feedback is taken on board and ammendments made if needed.
After the proposed sculpture is agreed upon, the sculpture is paid in installments, with the 1st stage paid before work can commence and is non refundable. The second stage is paid when the sculpture fabrication is complete and the final payment is due when the sculpture is delivered and installed.
Ideally the initial consultation would involve meeting with the client and a site visit.
This consultation stage is billed prior and seperate to the fee for the creation of the sculpture, the consultation price starts at €150 and may vary depending on travel distance to site location.
