The first step in commissioning a custom bronze horse statue involves a collaboration between the artist and the client to discuss the sculpture concept. Often, the client already has a idea which they wish to have captured in bronze sculpture, whether it is a horse, human or other beloved animal. Photographs and sketches are used to determine the exact pose and movement to be sculpted by the artist. Reference photos will be taken of the subject from all angles to capture the details more closely. Whenever possible the artist prefers to photograph the horse or subject in person.
The price of the sculpture is based on several determining factors:
The artist reserves the right to create a limited edition series from the commissioned sculpture unless the sculpture is specifically purchased as an exclusive edition of 1. For exclusive editions of 1, the artist reserves the right to create an artist proof for exhibition purposes only.
After the artist and client have agreed on the pose that is to be captured, the artist creates the sculpture in clay. On average, this takes between 2-7 months, depending on the size and complexity of the sculpture and artist's schedule. The sculpture is then reviewed by the client either in person or by photographs and any necessary changes are applied.
Upon final approval of the clay model, the sculpture is taken to the foundry to begin the mold making and lost wax bronze casting process. The mold making and casting processes usually take between 10-16 weeks. During this process the artist inspects and puts the finishing touches on metal chasing the bronze and supervising the patina application. The patina can be anything from a traditional bronze patina to a custom patina to match the color and markings of the subject horse and tack.
