Commissions

Commissions are always welcome, and no job is too small. Use the contact form on this site to send me your request and I will get in touch as soon as I can.

We will then discuss size, material, design, finish, pricing and lead time. Once we have agreed on all the relevant details, a 50% deposit is required before work can commence. This is to cover expenses for materials, but also to show commitment from your side to the deal.

For simple pieces I will generally finish the items in one go, and then agree on a hand-over or delivery and payment method. I accept payment in cash, via Paypal and direct bank transfer, but I won’t take cheques. If you collect in person, I can also accept credit and debit cards.

For more advanced work I will keep you up to date regarding progress, either via email, SMS or instagram, and you can influence the course of work as it proceeds.

Payment of the remaining 50% is due on delivery or handover of the finished work.

I have completed commissions for a wide range of customers:

Moseley Violins: a set of 16 button pins made from camel bone, to replace broken ivory pins on antique musical instruments

Julie Kay: a stand for a sculpture

Gurcharan Singh: 30 ceremonial martial arts clubs in varying sizes and finishes

Many holders for antique Chinese porcelain plates

Trophy stands and brandy bottle holders for Dawn Crystal

20 fence post finials in oak for a fence in Oxfordshire

Two complete sets of pieces for children’s high chairs

6 plant pot stands 100cm/60cm high in a variety of finishes

A segmented and tilted fruit bowl from oak, walnut, sapele and holly

These are just a few examples.
