Can I talk to you directly?
Yes, we encourage people to talk to us directly. This can help you get a better feel for what Clayton and his art are all about. You can telephone the studio at (610) 347-0555 or email us at StudioJCB@aol.com
How do I place an order?
Please telephone us at (610) 347-0555 or email us at StudioJCB@aol.com. Due to the high cost of casting bronze sculptures we require a 50% deposit to initiate the order.
How is my sculpture shipped?
Shipping depends upon the size of the bronze. UPS is our usual shipper, but larger pieces require other shipping companies
Does my new sculpture need maintenance?
Bronzes age gracefully. To preserve the patina on sculptures installed out-of-doors we suggest that the piece be waxed three times a year. We ship outdoor pieces with wax and instructions.
How long does it take to get my sculpture?
It depends if we have the sculpture on hand, or if we need to get it cast. The casting of a bronze sculpture involves a lot of hand labor and it can take approximately 10 to 12 weeks to complete a table size piece. Large pieces might take as much as 16 to 20 weeks.
This will vary, because at certain times of year (such as November – December), the foundry is backed up with a heavy schedule.
How are larger pieces installed? Does it matter if they are on the grass or a patio/walk?
It is not difficult to install a large sculpture (with a little help) almost anywhere one wants. However, each piece has its own requirements, so it is best to call us about a specific piece. It is important to understand the weight of life-size bronzes, and the necessity of planning placement carefully in advance.
I would love to have a sculpture of my pet. How do I go about commissioning Clayton?
Call or email us to start a conversation. Clayton will need to meet your pet and find an appropriate place to sculpt him or her.
I like a painting but it has been sold. Is there another similar one?
Clayton is willing paint portraits (people or animals), landscapes, house scapes and still lifes on commission.
