Commissions are Opening on March 15, 2014 @ 8PM EST !!!!
In two weeks, I will be opening for my next round of commissions. As per usual, I will be taking a limited number of orders. Due to other obligations, I can only offer half of the slots I normally have. After I reach my cap, I won’t be taking any more new orders again until my next round.
I do not keep a running waiting list. I want newcomers to my work have a fair shot at commissioning a piece from me, rather than having to be told that there is a 6+ month wait.
Work time on March sculpture orders will take place in late April through May.
How to Get a Sculpture Commission Slot
1. Be sure to read my commission policy and pricing information in full. Go there now.
2. Place a price quote request through my website. You will receive a response in 3-5 business days. Do not wait until the last second or you may not get a response in time.
3. Upon your acceptance of the price quote, you will be sent a PayPal invoice to keep on hand.
4. On March 15 at 8PM EST, simply pay your invoice. I will e-mail you back to let you know if you got a slot. I will also give you an estimated start date for the piece. Please DO NOT pay your invoice before March 15 or your payment will be returned to you.
Slots Will be VERY Limited!
Commission slots are given to those customers that pay their deposits first at time of opening (March 15 at 8PM EST). I will announce once the slots are full. If you send me a payment but I have already filled up, your deposit will be promptly returned to you.
I recommend getting your deposit in as close to the opening time as you can as I fill up very quickly. My last round filled up in under 3 minutes and I expect it to be even quicker this time. I already have nearly 3 times the requests than I have time available.
2014 Commission Availability and Price Changes
Beginning this month, I am beginning to further limit the number of commissions that I accept during each round. I plan on spending more time on teaching and working on other projects in 2014. If you are interested in getting a commission from me, the sooner the better. There is a strong possibility I will be decreasing slots even further throughout the year or possibly skipping over rounds completely. I am also going to be a lot pickier about what projects I take on since my time will be more limited. I wish I could fulfill everyone’s commission requests, but I only have so much time.
After the March round of commissions, I will be implementing my annual price increase. All outstanding invoices will be canceled at this point. You will need to resubmit your request if you didn’t get a slot this round but still want to commission your sculpture. This means if you want to commission a sculpture at my current prices, you will need to get a slot in this next round.
When exactly should deposits be sent?
I will start accepting commission deposits at 8PM (2000) EDT on March 15. If you live in a different time zone, use this handy time zone converter to figure out when to pay your deposit!
Please DO NOT pay your deposit before March 15 or your payment will be returned to you.
100% of the sculpture cost must be paid upfront before work can begin on the sculpture. This may be done one of two ways. You can either pay 100% on your initial deposit (recommended) OR you can pay 50% to secure your slot with the remaining 50% to be paid on or before the sculpture start date. Go to my policy page to read the full information. 50% option is only available on sculptures priced at $300 and up.
Thank you so much for your interest in my work. I look forward to working with some of you in the coming months.
