FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I commission a piece of sculpture?

Please either use the e-commerce facility, or if you prefer please fill in the Contact form with your order, delivery address and contact number, and when you would like the sculpture for. We will then send you a pro forma invoice. Following receipt of funds we will send you a receipt and confirmation of a delivery date.
Of course, you are most welcome to call with any queries that you may have!

What are the sculptures made from?

The large sculptures are created from ¾ inch solid mild steel bar with the smaller works being made from ½ inch solid mild steel bar.

How are the sculptures finished?

All the sculptures are left in their natural state where they develop a surface patination of rust. This ochre colour is a very similar hue to the actual animals. Due to the thickness of the steel, the sculptures will last for many decades.

Can I have my sculpture delivered on a specific date?

We can arrange to have your sculpture delivered for a birthday, anniversary or a particular date.
However, we strongly advise that the sculpture be delivered at least one day prior to the date needed to avoid disappointment.

How will my sculpture be delivered?

Your sculpture(s) will be delivered on a pallet with steel bands and covered in black wrap.
We use a trusted courier who will deliver the sculpture on a day to suit you between 9am and 5pm.
A signature will be required by the courier so one person will need to be at the delivery address between these hours.
The delivery wagons are normally 7.5 ton curtainsiders with a tail lift. If you have vehicular restriction
or security measures please inform us of this prior to dispatch.

I want to order some sculpture for delivery outside the UK. How do I go about this?

We deliver all over the world using a trusted shipping agent. For you to receive an accurate shipping quote could you please fill in your full delivery address and contact number.

Will the courier site my sculpture?

The courier will endeavour to position his wagon as close to your chosen site as possible and will offload the consignment with a tail lift, but is up to you to finally site the work.

How heavy are the sculptures?

The Watchful Stag is the heaviest studio work weighing 100kgs, with the Alert Hinds and Does weighing 65kgs each. Therefore two able bodied people can easily install the sculptures. For the larger works, for example the Shire Horse or the Angus Bull, and some bespoke work alternative delivery arrangements will be made.

How are the sculptures fixed to the ground?

If your sculpture is to be sited on grass, we provide stakes that can be driven through hidden brackets in the hooves to secure the work. If the sculpture is to be sited on hard standing then we can make a suitable plinth. (Please ask at the time of ordering) If you are concerned about security, then concrete pads can be cast around the stakes to permanently secure the work.
