How to Commission a Sculpture

Triptych of Trees

Commissioning a sculpture should be an easy and enjoyable process.

If you already know the style and design of sculpture you require then please contact me here /contact-akers-of-art with all the details and I will get back to you with a quote.

If, however, you are still unsure of what it is you are looking for then I am here to make the process as simple as possible.

Free Form Wall Mounted Sculpture

If you wish to have a free form sculpture attached to the wall then firstly, I am happy to come to you, to see the space that you require a sculpture for. There, I will take pictures, measure the area and discuss any ideas with you. I can then create a design and put together a quote.

If, for whatever reason, be it a surprise, long distance or it is not possible for me to come to see the space then I would require some measurements of the space to be taken and a few photos at different angles. We can then discuss any requirements over the phone before I create a design and put together a quote.  

The quote is usually given as an estimate based on materials and time and once you are happy with the design and any adjustments have been made I will then require a 30% deposit before I begin. The deposit will be based on the lower end of the quote and removed from the final invoice.

I will then liaise with you throughout the project sending you photographs and updates.

A further 30% of the final balance will need to be paid on completion and photographs of the complete piece being viewed.

Then the final 40% payment needs to be made within 10 days of delivery and installation of the sculpture.

As a rough guide these pieces can range from £3000 to £7000 (The cost will be higher if the piece is larger than 6 foot wide or high)

Free Standing or Framed Sculptures

Any of the sculptures seen here can be re-created but because these pieces are all hand made they will have differences. 

To create any of the framed sculptures or free standing sculptures, I can either come and view the wall or space and take measurements to make a piece to fit or you can send measurements to me.

You choose the stone colour and wire colour and I will have a frame custom made to your requirements or choose a ready made frame if it is of the correct size. 

I require a  30% deposit before I begin. 

I will send progress pictures if required and the rest of the payment will be invoiced to you on delivery of the piece and must be paid within 10 days of receiving the piece. 

As a rough guide these pieces range from £280 to £2000.
