About Commissioning a piece of pottery or ceramic sculpture
Things to know about commissions
If you are interested in commissioning a clock or other piece from me, then this section will apply.
Commissions have been forming a larger part of my work as a whole. This was not something I had initially given a lot of thought to and always approached the idea with a degree of reticence. However, I have found that I enjoy discussing and working with many ideas that have been requested. As a spin off it can also open up a new and fruitful areas that I may not have considered.
Simple commissions have taken the form of a request for one or other of my regular pieces, perhaps specifying the colours or decorative design..The other end of the scale has been the design and production of a completely new shape ,style and content. (see ‘susie’s clock’).
If you wish to contact me regarding a possible commission, I am willing to discuss any ideas.
How it Works.
After an initial consultation I shall get back to you with a price , start/delivery* date an any other matters arising. I would then ask for a deposit (min. £100). The final payment upon completion.
What you get
You will receive a piece that is signed and made by myself in consultation with yourself and completely unique to you.
As a guide ,commissions work out between £1500-£3000.
For any of the current work with minor changes/ alterations, considerably less.
*Due to the risk of cracking/ other problems with new designs , delivery times are approximate , but I in the case of a special anniversary or birthday etc I have not been late yet. I will always keep you informed of progress.
