Commission a Sculpture

Become part of the experience of creating sculpture.

Commission a sculpture and collaborate with Mark to create a unique work of art for your home, office, or landscape.

STEP 1:  Contact Mark

Contact Mark by calling 480-310-4822

or email:

Discuss your idea for a sculpture with Mark. Together, we will work on creating the perfect work of art to meet your needs.

The creative process begins with brainstorming possible design ideas. Drawings or small maquettes (models) can be made. Your input is important. Feel free to make suggestions and changes to the concept drawings or model until we reach a final design that meets your needs.

This is the time to try out different ideas, change forms around, or suggest different materials. Critique the proposed drawings or maquette until we are satisfied with the final design.

After arriving at a final design, Mark can give an estimate of the price of the sculpture, and how long it will take to create it. An estimate can also be made for the cost of shipping and installation, if applicable.

In some cases, a down payment may be required to help cover the cost of materials and labor before work can begin.

A number of sketches are done to begin exploring different possibilities.

The sketches give a variety of directions to go in to help decide on the final design.  

STEP 2:  Decide on a Design

Once a design concept is chosen, Mark will make final drawings, or sculpt a maquette (model). This will help you visualize how the finished sculpture will look.

To help visualize how the sculpture will look once installed, you can send Mark a photo of where the sculpture is to be placed, and Mark will add the sculpture drawing to your photo with Photoshop so that you can get an idea of what it will look like.

After your approval of the design, the work begins.

Note: Making significant design changes after sculpting begins may incur price changes.

A final design has been chosen. The horses were originally to be made of stainless steel. Later, it was decided to paint the horses.

Now it is time to make a more accurate drawing that can be used in the sculpting.

Work Begins

With the final design in hand, work can begin. Once the work is underway, only minor changes can be made. A major design change will result if an additional  charge.

STEP 4  Installation

Installing a sculpture of a horse

Once the work is completed, it is ready for final approval.

The finished sculpture is then ready for delivery. Upon receipt of payment, the sculpture will be delivered.

Small sculptures can be shipped through FedEX. Large, heavier sculptures can be shipped by Craters&Freighters or Navis

Mark can provide estimates for shipping charges.

If the destination is within reasonable driving distance, Mark will deliver the sculpture. Arrangements can also be made for Mark to do the installation if necessary.

For moderatley sized sculptures delivery and installation within the Phoenix area is free.
