Do I need to pay deposit to start a project? How much?

Yes, after all details of the sculpture project have been decided by both parties, we will sign a contract with you and a certain amount of deposit is to be made for starting the project. The amount of the deposit is as specified in the contract.

How long will it take for you to produce a bronze sculpture? Say, a life-sized figure.

The time to complete a sculpture varies depending on some factors: the scale of the project, its complexity, its specific requirement, etc. Generally speaking, it takes around 25 working days to cast a life-sized bronze figure upon our receiving your pattern.

How will you handle my pattern after receiving it ?

Your pattern (original work) will be carefully used and kept during the casting process and we will ship the finished sculpture together with the pattern back to you. We view the pattern as your important property and will never use it for other purpose

In our foundry, your sculpture patterns, molds or digital representation will be closely guarded and won’t be forwarded to a third party without your prior written permission. We promise to use the any material you send us in a way that both of us agree previously. We will ship back the pattern or destroy it after the metal castings are made upon your request.

Besides, we will sign a Copyright Guarantee Contract with you to make all those rules clear.
