Please contact Beckie for current prices and availability of the works on this site.

Ordering

If a piece is already in stock, it will be shipped as soon as payment is received. Limited editions may not always be in stock. If you wish to purchase an edition, a 50% deposit is requested to cover casting and finishing costs. As soon as the piece is ready for shipment, you will be notified, and the piece will be sent as soon as the balance is received. Please be aware that it may take from 8-12 weeks to get a finished piece back from the foundry. Rush orders will usually incur additional charges from the foundry.

Payment

Sculptures can be purchased through checks in US dollars or through PayPal using the “send to email” feature.   If you wish to use a credit card, I am charged 2.9% fee by PayPal, and this fee may be added to the purchase price of the sculpture.

Shipping, crating and insurance fees will be added to the purchase price of the sculpture.

Commissions

Custom commissions are a collaboration between artist and client, and elements of design, installation and budget will be agreed upon at the beginning of the project. Please call or write to discuss your ideas. Commissions require one-third deposit before the sculpting work is begun, one third after the clay sculpt is approved and before the piece goes to the foundry, and the balance upon completion of the piece.

A Note on Limited Editions and One-of-a-Kind Sculptures

The Sculpted Arias (Opera Art) portrait masks with interior tableaus are created either as unique, one-of-a-kind pieces or as limited editions of up to 5. However, the faces by themselves are available in limited editions of 25. These editions are hollow masks cast in bronze, with no sculpting or painting on the interior. The masks are available in either a free-standing version, mounted on a granite, marble or steel base, or as a version designed for wall-hanging . Each face is approximately life-sized.

The bronze figures, faces and relief plaques seen in the Sculpture and Opera Art galleries are all limited editions. Edition numbers vary, depending on the piece. Once an edition is sold out, the mold is destroyed and no further copies will be cast.

The ceramic figures and faces are one-of-a-kind. Some have also been cast as limited edition bronzes, and most of the ceramic pieces have this option A price for the bronze would be determined upon request.

Figures and Faces have many possibilities for mounting. Beckie will work with you to come up with a presentation that will enhance your decor as well as the sculpture. Reliefs can be either hung on a wall or displayed on a custom wooden stand.
