Commission Procedure

In order to realize a commissioned work the following process has proved most successful:
  • Initial contact with me to establish client needs.
  • Set up meeting, preferably at site for sculpture and discuss concept, material and costs.
  • If agree to continue with project then I draw up details of the concept together with a budget and time line. Client pays $2000 for this work.
  • Submit concept and costings to the client.
  • If client is happy then proceed into project. Client puts down 50% of total costs.
  • Construction of work. Consultation with clients to discuss possible variations.
  • Completion and installation of work.
  • Final payment of 50% balance.
  • Have a beer!
