Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for current pricing & availability.
Terms for Payment
For bronze editions, half down and half upon completion of the artwork in bronze are the usual terms. Commission pieces require 3 separate payments. One to start the project, one upon completion & approval of clay, and the final payment on completion of the bronze.
Methods of Payment
Cash, check and major credit cards are welcome.
If I do not have your bronze in stock, production time varies according to size and complexity of the bronze and foundry schedules. To give a rough idea, a 35″ bronze can generally be cast, assembled, chased, patinaed and delivered anywhere in the world in eight to twelve weeks, and a ten-foot monument can generally be ready for delivery in four to six months. Rush production may be possible.
Black granite is the usual choice. Other colors or stone may be available. If you would prefer wood, we can accommodate. Concrete sub-bases may be needed for outdoor monuments.
Delivery and Installation
Sculptures that are under 200 pounds may be crated or boxed and shipped to you. If I have occasion to be near your area around the time your sculpture is ready, I may be able to deliver your bronze personally.
In many cases, eight to ten people are all that are needed for unloading and installing a monument. Sometimes the half-hour use of a small crane is needed. Specifics regarding monument installation will be discussed in detail in the months prior to the installation.
I want you to be satisfied with your bronze! Bronze is a medium that will endure for 10,000 years, or your money back! The patina will vary slightly from piece to piece as each one is done individually. The foundry will try very hard to replicate each one to the standards of the artist and client.
We want you to have an enjoyable experience!
