Firstly, we are not out to make a fortune just a living. We trust you can see from the example above that our prices are not expensive. By way of further explanation this is how the above price has been arrived at:
Timber and epoxy resin materials
Finishing coatings £ 508.00
560 man hours @ minimum wage of £7.20 ph £4032.00
Workshop costs £ 215.00
(N.B. Please note that new orders will have the new minimum wage of £7.50 applied).
The only draw back with buying something hand made is that any work you commision will take a little time before it is ready for collection or delivery. If time is of the essence, you may wish to consider a purchase from our stock pieces.
To obtain a quote for an individual piece of your choosing, simply email a sketch of what you want. Please confirm if the piece is to be for internal display or a permanent outside installation. We shall also require an idea of scale i.e. life size or the maximum height intended. We shall reply with an idea of the cost. If you then decide to proceed, we shall email you a draft specification and a request for information. Normally in the case of figurative work this will consist of you placing a person (s) in the pose you desire and supplying photographs from all points of the compass. We shall then issue you a fixed quotation.
To order we shall require a deposit (advised within quotation). Once finished, we shall send you photographs by email (or you can visit the workshop) and see the piece for yourself and decide if it meets your expectations. You may then decide whether to buy the piece or not. Payment in full is required before dispatch.
The price of each piece will be quoted to you once we understand what it is you require and the specification is agreed between us before work begins. This price will be a fixed quotation and will not change assuming you do not change the specification. Each piece is supplied with installation instructions and in the case of more than one wooden person, a 'foot print' template is also supplied so that the positioning of the retaining rods can be exact by any competent handy man or builder.
The price of each or any piece does not include the cost of delivery which is charged at cost. Delivery can be anywhere in the UK. Life size wooden figures are heavy and require suitable handling equipment or numbers of people to help unload. This is the responsibilty of the buyer.
Plus delivery and installation if required.
