Though challenging, the act of translating the ideas of a patron into reality through the
creative process has great reward. The finished art is not solely a product of the artist,
but rather the culmination of the teamwork between artist and patron through
clear communication, creativity, and dedicated effort.
If you are considering commissioning a sculpture Mr. Schwaiger would be happy to discuss your idea with you directly. A ballpark price and timeline can generally be supplied within a week of initial discussions, the final version of these being given after drawings have been made and the final form of the sculpture has been selected.
Indoor and outdoor sculpture are available of any subject ranging from the abstract to portraiture and in any feasible medium including bronze, iron, aluminum, wood, stone, resin, or other cast synthetics.
For cast bronze, iron, or aluminum work, Mr. Schwaiger works directly with an art foundry to produce the sculpture. Casting time is often dependent on the work load of the foundry. Likewise, cost is variable depending on the cost of foundry labor and changing price of metal.
The price of any commissioned work depends on the desired size of the sculpture, complexity of the subject matter, and materials used.
