What is commission work? Do you do commission work?
Commission work is art that is custom made for a specific person or location. If you see a sculpture of mine that would be perfect for you if only it were a bit larger or a different color, I may be able to create a custom piece just to your specifications. I love making commission pieces, because I usually get to know the people for whom the work is being made, and am able to think of them as I am creating. This personal connection is very inspiring to me. Prices for pieces vary according to size, materials and labor requirements. My smallest sculptural spoons begin at about $400, and most of my sculptures range from about $800 to $5,000 or more. A deposit of half of the final price is required upon initiation of work. Please message me via my contact form if you'd like to discuss the possibility of having custom art made for you.
Do you teach classes and workshops?
Yes, I teach one- to six-hour-long lecture/demonstrations and weekend- and week-long workshops on woodcarving, woodbending, woodturning, and design. I'm a very enthusiastic, energetic teacher and love to share what I know. Please contact me if you'd like to have me teach for your organization or school. You can see my upcoming teaching events here
