customised Sculpture

YOUR SCULPTURE PROJECT

Define your project
  • I mainly realizes sculptures in bronze or resin to order.
  • I study each customer the best possibliltés of achievement based on the following criteria:
  • its budget
  • the size of the sculpture
  • the material used (bronze, plasticine, resin, etc.)
  • expression of the animal
  • the animal standing or lying, whole or bust
  • with the realization of a base or not
  • You understood, each sculpture is unique  and my work is customised
Sculpture Choice
  • The PRICE of a sculpture is based on the following:
  • The complexity of the subject: An animal can be represented in bust, or sitting, lying or standing or moving. With a base or not
  • the size of the sculpture: All dimensions are possible, small sculpture for display on a table or in a display case at the life-size sculpture where the animal is shown at actual size.
  • If you want a numbered sculpture or a unique piece
  • Indeed, an original bronze sculpture is drawn to 8 copies numbered from 1/8 to 8/8 + 4 additional prints. These 4 additional prints are numbered I / IV IV / IV and are called Artist Proofs. A total of 12 copies. The artist may sell the remaining copies.
  • A unique piece is a sculpture that has been fired at a single copy. The mold used in this single print is destroyed once the bronze sculpture completed. This uniqueness gives it more value, artistically and financially as it does exist in only one copy in the world!
  • And so, to provide a rate, I have to know what you want.
  •  
  • All my sculptures are  certified  signed   numbered #/12
What I need for?

  • - Quite numerous photographs to get an idea of the volumes of your pet
