Commissioning your own
MetalCrafters will work with you to design and create a custom work that is special to you or your loved ones. While I specialize in metal, mixed materials can be interesting. Wood concrete and stone can be incorporated, and if it gets more exotic, I have a network of artists I may engage to assist. You can be involved as you wish to be- the process is fluid and fun.
Examples: The links below are examples of preliminary sketches, a brief design proposal, and a formal proposal for a custom bicycle rack created for an art park. The above right is a custom bike rack made for a local optometrist office.
The commissioning process:
I'll contact you for an initial meeting or telecom to discuss your interests
I'll submit a series of hand sketches and brief descriptions with very rough ranges of cost
If you wish to get serious, then I'll begin the design process
I will submit a formal design proposal with 1-2 designs modelled in CAD, a draft schedule, and full itemized price quote. Large sculptures are commonly quoted installed including pouring concrete pad, etc.
Here are some examples:
