commission process starts with a discussion between artist and client
to determine the extent of the project. Through discussion and exchange
of ideas Troy will then create a maquette of clay, which is a model
of the proposed final piece.
this point all parties discuss any changes that need to be made.
Once the maquette is to the satisfaction of artist and client, work
begins on the final sculpture in the requested medium, typically
wood or bronze. See examples below.
final model may be an enlargement of the maquette, or just a refinement
of the original maquette to create a finished maquette in clay.
If casting in bronze, a mold is made from the finished model which
is then used for the casting process. The final piece may also be
carved in wood using the finished maquette as the model.
this process of dialogue between artist and client, the vision of
both can be realized. If you would like to discuss the commission
a sculpture, please contact Troy directly.
