HOW YOUR PIECE COMES TO LIFE
When someone first comes to me to commission a piece, there are usually 3 reasons they want one - firstly, as decoration for their garden. Secondly, as a gift and thirdly, as a memory piece for someone very special.
Sometimes, they know exactly what they want. However, usually I will come up with a design based on where the piece is going and anything that is special to the person. For gifts, I will try to make it as personal as possible and the more information I can get about the person, the more personal it will be.
When someone comes to me for a memory piece, this is an extremely personal and emotional sculpture. I try to find out as much as I can about what made their loved one special, what makes them remember them.
I have created a lot of pieces in memory of children or babies born asleep. The most important part of this kind of design is the emotion - what kind of feeling does someone want from the piece.
From there, I will come up with a design that will be unique to you and give you ideas. Then it's down to me to bring your piece to life.
To see the stories behind some of my designs, have a look at the gallery below.
And, if you would like a piece, I would love to hear from you and come up with your design.
