Most of my work is with Art Consultants, Interior Designers, Architects and Galleries. References are available on request. The public is usually looking for inexpensive work and can locate that on Ebay.
Most of the work I do is commissioned and site-specific. I often do designs on paper or clear mylar or actual maquettes using the final materials.
I’ve learned I have to charge for shipping and a small amount for crating. It can take sometimes 8 hours to build a box and get the piece secured inside. I ship everywhere in the USA and Canada via UPS, Fed Ex and Yellow Freight. They have all been very fast and reliable for me.
Internationally, I have shipped via UPS to England, Fed Ex to Canada and these and other shippers are available for international service.
I require a 50% down payment to start on a project, with the balance due on shipping. I find this keeps everyone invested and focused.
I have the equipment to cut, shape, weld and finish aluminum, steel, stainless steel, bronze, copper and brass. I am quite skilled with patinas. I can also do coatings: clear, transparent colors and opaque colors.
I strive for on-time delivery. However, quality of design and craftsmanship are always my primary concerns. I will not ship until the work meets my standards. Sometimes the unforeseen occurs and brilliant solutions are not always immediately at hand.
I provide complete installation instructions and usually provide the installation hardware as well. I often ship a transparent Mylar ‘map’ with the piece, noting the exact location of the fasteners. This enables the exact positioning of the piece to be accomplished without actually holding it in place and facilitates a very quick, easy installation with no need for corrections.
You can right-click on any image, download it and then use it for your presentation materials. If the definition isn’t high enough for your needs, please contact me and I will send you a 300 dpi image. I will also soon have many PDF files for your printing needs. I can send you packages of prints and other presentation materials. I will be working on a CD-ROM with a PowerPoint presentation as well.
Please feel free to contact me for pricing, drawings and ideas. I will do whatever I can to assist you. We all want to make the world a more beautiful place.
I am currently working on many new design concepts. Stay tuned.
