Most of the artworks I make are commissioned. Usually in consultation with the customer-client I first design a small model that serves as the basis for a final work of art. You can read below how this process of art-in-commission works.

Read all about the steps and working methods on this page to arrive at a personal work of art or sculpture.
Steps in design
I would like to design a personal sculpture for you on assignment. In practice, when realizing an art assignment, I usually follow these steps:
Free introduction and meeting
We make an appointment for a meeting by phone or e-mail. I would like to hear your wishes and ideas for a work of art. I can show you some examples and possibilities of stainless steel finishes. If possible, I would like to agree on a roughly price so that we both know with which budget we can work.
Is there a click and do we move on?
A few days after our conversation, I ask you if what we have discussed meets your expectations. Is there a click? Are we going to continue together to realize something beautiful and fitting?
If there is a click, I make a number of designs and sketches based on what we have discussed. In this I am happy to process your comments and comments into a customized design. I’m going to make a model out of this at scale. Sometimes multiple variants. If this design appeals to you and we can continue with this, I will ask for EUR 1500 for this.
From the small approved fashion I make a full-size test model of cardboard or MDF. In this trial model we can still adjust everything. Only when you are completely satisfied with the full-size design will I start with the final artwork.
Get to work
Usually, realizing a work of art takes a few weeks, depending on how busy it is. At the start of the execution I ask you for a deposit of 50% so that I can pay part of the costs of the realization. After delivery, you can pay the remaining part of the agreed amount.
Finished or placed?
Once the sculpture has been executed you can pick it up in my studio, but in many cases I will place the artwork on the spot.
A certificate of authenticity.
On request I can provide a certificate of authenticity with possibly a few lines of personal text.
