What you need to know!
First steps usually consist of you (client), getting in touch! You can find out more details on the process of a commissioned piece below. After that simply send your enquiry by filling out the Commissioned Piece contact form.
Once I received your enquiry I will get back to you using the email you provided and discuss what it is you'd like me to create for you. We will go over all the details needed to start an initial sketch or 3D computer sketch where applicable. Once we've come to a final design I receive a deposit before commencing work. Once that's received the best part of the process begins, for both you and myself. I will purchase the materials needed and start your bespoke piece. I will also send photographs/emails upon request whenever you'd like to be updated during the whole making process. Some clients like to see updates, others like the element of surprise and only seeing the piece when completed. The choice is yours!
Every piece I make requires a different process. I use a combination of modern and traditional techniques, a mixture of hand tools and machinery. This can take several weeks depending on the scale and complexity of the project. I usually take on commissions and spread them throughout the year. If you'd like to work with me just fill out the contact form...I'd love to hear from you!
