Commission

wax sketch

I enjoy working with my patrons and strive to make the entire process enjoyable. For those interested in a project there is no cost or commitment to meet and discuss possibilities. The ideas of the patron can be specific or loose, either way we can collaborate together and envision further. From this meeting I am able to work up small 3-d sketches. This is an effective step to materialize possible designs.

Finished Bronze

Next, we meet again to review the sketches. Once a patron is pleased with a sketch I am able to work out a bid for the full scale clay creation and the bronze casting. With the price agreed upon the project begins. My terms are 1/3 payment to begin the project. The next 1/3 is due at the completion of the full scale clay, and the final 1/3 due upon delivery of the finished bronze sculpture.

Timing varies, but generally takes about 90 days to design and sculpt the piece and another 60 days to cast the project in bronze.
I am located at the Alpine Art Center in beautiful Alpine, Utah.

Many have found it enjoyable to meet with me at the studio to view current projects and have a tour of the foundry and learn more about the bronze casting process.

Let’s work together and create something beautiful!
