COMMISSIONED SCULPTURE

I specialize in commissioned sculpture and create likenesses of dogs.
I also create likenesses of people. I work live or from photos.

Contact me if you are interested, and we can talk about your project.
Price and timeframe depends upon the size and complexity of the piece.

A small dog or puppy takes 6-12 hours to create, whereas a life-sized adult
dog can take 20-40 hours. It also takes a few weeks to move the piece through
the firing process, because the sculpture will be fired twice; bisque and high fire.
