There are really two paths to acquiring a piece of sculpture. You can purchase and existing work and have it shipped to the site in relatively short order. You can also commission a work and it takes just a bit longer. In either case you need to take into account the site and a good art dealer or our studio can help you out with that.
The process really starts with listening to the goals of the client. There may be parameters of space, budget and color that are most important in the beginning.
There is first and foremost the scale of the work relative to the space that it inhabits. Bigger is not necessarily better. A good scale is often a gut feeling that is derived from how you intend to see the work from different vantage points. It is also about how the space is to be used and its intrinsic environmental conditions.
Material becomes important to pragmatic concerns as much as visual. For spaces that need the ultimate in low maintenance, stainless steel is pretty hard to beat. However sometimes color is a necessity and the use of an industrial marine urethane is the best solution.
