Our pricing policy is simple. Prices are normally suggested by the artist. We guarantee our prices. The quality of each work of art is guaranteed and comes with a fully documented “Certificate of Value and Authenticity.” Please request one with your order.
We cannot guarantee the accuracy of art work dimensions. They are often an artist estimate as the art is usually hand-made and each piece varies somewhat. If exact measurements are required for a particular installation, please contact us.
We ship worldwide and can ship 90% of items in the gallery. Shipping insurance is included in our shipping quotes unless otherwise noted. All of our shipments are normally insured. Shipping costs are not refundable. Tracking numbers are available upon request. To get an estimate for shipping cost, please contact us. Any duties and/or taxes by foreign governments for shipments outside the United States are the responsibility of the client. Estimated delivery dates are purely artist estimates and are not guaranteed. Crating and shipping of art takes a minimum of 2 weeks. If you need it faster, we will try to accommodate your deadline.

If you have any questions regarding your shipment please contact our administration department.

Bronze Maintenance Tips:
Every bronze will collect some dust. As a general rule of thumb, indoor pieces should be cleaned and waxed once per year and outdoor pieces should be waxed twice per year.
The best way to clean dust from your sculptures is to brush it off with a soft bristle brush or wipe it with a damp rag. Do not use soap or household cleaners as they may strip the patina, react with patina, or leave a residue. Dry the bronze thoroughly with a soft rag.
To wax your bronze, first choose a fine carnauba or beeswax based wax. Many artists use a product called Tree Wax. Waxes for cars or boats are not recommended. Wait until later in the day to ensure that surface condensation is not a problem and make sure the piece is completely dry. Apply a thin layer of wax with a soft bristle brush and allow the wax to dry for the recommended time on the label. Gently buff it with a soft, clean rag. Two to three coats are usually sufficient for most conditions. With just a little bit of time and effort, you’ll have your bronze clean and shiny and ready to put back on display.
