Commissions

I am more than happy to undertake commissions for you. Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and other special occasions sometimes requires that unique gift that you simply can't find on the high street. I work from photos and your ideas in terms of pose, style and finishing details -  both for animals (pet dogs being a favourite!) and people or even one off decorative items. The style is more caricature as opposed to truly lifelike...one day I may be proficient enough for that..

 

Prices can be agreed up front based on size, level of detail and sometimes timing can have an influence! With this in mind it is worth noting that clay takes time to dry out thoroughly before firing. The whole process from idea through to completion should take around six weeks in total, possibly longer if I happen to be really busy. I have created some dogs in under a month, but this has proved difficult and is by no means ideal. So please build this into your present plans!

 

It is best to contact me via email and then we can discuss ideas over the phone if you wish. I keep in touch with you during the process, emailing photos of work in progress so it can be adjusted if necessary whilst still wet.

 

My email is lord.jan.c@googlemail.com

 

Thank you.

 

TESTIMONIAL

 

I was looking for a present that was truly unique and certainly found it at Cow Ark Pottery. Surprisingly the process was easy and very reasonably in price. The Sculptor (Janet) took the time to discuss and get my gift just right.  I would recommend this bespoke experience to any person looking for something extra special.
