If you need a quote on your next beautification project, we can help. From concept to completion, we work together to bring your make your ideas reality. Whether you are commissioning a large or small, public or private sculpture, the process remains the same. We specialize in sculptures that are larger than life, cast in resin, bronze, aluminum, and other materials.
The sculpture commissioning process begins with a few questions:
What size would you like your sculpture to be? You may provide the size in measurements, such as 25 feet feet tall or 30 feet long, or in relation to the object such as life sized or half-life sized.
What medium would you like the final piece cast in? Some commonly used casting materials are resin, bronze, stainless steel, aluminum, and silver.
What is your budget? If your budget is tight let us know. We will be able to work with you to let you know how to decrease your costs.
What is your deadline? If possible, make available photographs of the subject to help the us determine the level of detail needed. This will also enable the us to give a better estimate.
We will give you a quote for the final sculpture. The quote is an in-depth explanation of what you can expect and will receive as an end product. The quote also includes the estimated cost which is determined by a our unique configuration, size and proportion and, therefore, varies for each piece.
You may take some time to consider the quote. The timeline, however, is based on the foundry’s schedule so consult us on exactly how long you have to decide without affecting the timeline and pricing.
Note for large sculptures (i.e. life-sized, large than life): A finished maquette of the approved sculpture is required to calculate the cost of the bronze. The foundry must be consulted and requires accurate measurements in all dimensions; height, width, depth, direction/ movement of the piece as well as other factors to be able to calculate the total cost.
After accepting the quote, a down payment will be paid and work will begin on the sculpture.
Once the sculpture is complete, the final payment equal to the remaining amount of the quote is due to us and the finished artwork is given to the client.
If the sculpture needs to be installed, necessary artisans, craftsmen, and professional installers will be employed and the we will oversee the installation process. The cost of the installation is calculated separately and added to the initial quote.
Now you understand the sculpture commissioning process. Please keep in mind that the process may vary slightly because each piece is unique. Also, it takes several months to complete a sculpture, so please allow at least six to nine months for life size statues and a year or more for larger than life pieces.
