to order a customised SculptureALL YOU NEED TO KNOW TO ORDER FROM THE ARTIST
- your budget
- the size of the sculpture
- the material used (bronze, resin, etc.)
- the expression of the animal
- the animal standing or lying down, whole or bust
- with the realization of a base or not
- The complexity of the subject: An animal can be represented as a bust, or sitting, lying or standing or moving. With a base or not.
- The dimensions of the sculpture: All dimensions are possible, from the small sculpture to be displayed on a piece of furniture or in a showcase to the life-size sculpture where the animal is represented at its real size.
- Whether you want a unique or numbered sculpture. For example, a unique piece will be more expensive than a sculpture that is part of a series.
- A SINGLE PIECE is a sculpture that has been made in a single edition. The mold used for this unique print is destroyed once the bronze sculpture is finished. This uniqueness gives it more value, artistically and financially, because there will be only one copy in the world.
- An ORIGINAL SCULPTURE in bronze is drawn to 8 copies numbered from 1/8 to 8/8 + 4 additional Artist's proofs numbered from I/IV to IV/IV. That is to say a total of 12 copies. The artist can sell the other copies.
- A SERIES : a sculpture is considered to be part of a series when the number of sculptures published from the mold is more than 12 copies
- All my sculptures are : signed Certified Numbered
Once your sculpture project is defined, here is the ordering process
For a sculpture of your pet
- If you have photographs: You will have to send me as many as possible so that I can have an idea of the volumes of your animal. If you have the possibility to film it, it is a plus because it allows me to discover it in action. If I can meet your pet, it's even better but it is not a necessity.
- If you don't have photographs and/or videos: I can come to your home to take photographs, videos and also take measurements. According to your geographical distance, I will send you an estimate concerning my travel expenses (mileage, time spent on the shots, accommodation, meals).
