Commissioning a sculpture - the process

Portrait sculptures can be sculpted from life, with a sitting at my studio or at a clients home, or even from photos if time is short or the piece is posthumous. When the clay bust or figure is finished the client can be shown a photo or call and see the piece (images can be emailed if a client chooses). When they are satisfied, casting into bronze takes place at Castle Fine Art Foundry, near Oswestry. If a budget doesn't run to a bronze, other mediums can be used to cast the finished piece ie: reconstituted stone, concrete, plaster and resin fiberglass. The whole process from start to finish takes approximately 2 months (longer for a larger statue).

Many clients prefer to pay in installments, with a third paid when the work starts, a third when you are happy with the clay sculpture, and a final third on delivery of the finished piece.

What will commissioning a sculpture cost?

A life size portrait bust in bronze costs around £5000 and other mediums vary in price and start from approximately £1000. A life size figure in bronze costs in the region of £15,000 to £20,000. An 8ft bronze statue costs in the region of £40 to £50,000.
