CUSTOM ART SERVICES
Search through our statuary catalog with over 12,000 statues in our online art gallery. Or get a custom art quote for anything you want made beyond what you see in our current collection of existing sculptures and statuary decor art pieces. Commission us to make a custom carved marble statue or custom sculpted architectural ornamentation for you. We can make almost anything in either real marble stone, bronze, or quality hard wood using whatever artwork you supply us with and the combined abilities of our staff of archive researchers, concept artists, faux finishers, sculptors, and expert carvers. When producing custom artworks our art department primarily uses the materials/mediums: bronze and marble (which often necessitates a clay version to be generated first).
Instead of a marble carving, get an original custom metal casting made in either bronze, aluminum, or welded steal plates - available as limited edition art pieces.*
Hire our crew of faux finish painters to repaint your home, office, and garden statues. Or get a wood carving created as a relief, or "in the round" (three-dimensional, 3D). We can also make any scale model imaginable with our staff of Hollywood movie model makers! From butterflies to spaceship cockpits, rockets to robots, and any building, car, or boat, and even launchpads, trains, and planes. As well as for architectural firms to present their ideas to investors and the public; And at the site dedication ceremony where the ribbon is cut next to a scaled verison of the building to go on display afterwards in the lobby.
* A bust of any person ,or other art subject, can be made in clay first and then carved into marble right next to the clay model for referrence by the carvers. This allows for more adjustments to be made to the sculpture before the concept is carved in stone, an additional fee applies for creating the additional clay sculpture.
We specialize in providing historical and classic statuary art reproductions. There are over 7,500 reproduction statuary pieces to choose from that can be painted [by our faux finish professionals] with any faux finish you desire, to look like: metal, marble, any solid color, antiquing, and other aging effects. Most of our statues and sculptures are reproduced in any of the following mediums: hydrostone, cement, fiberglass, or resin with the faux finish painting typically included in the price. Feel free to call our art department directly if you need help figuring out which statue and color is best for your particular decorative application. Our staff is amazing at statue sourcing from both our archives and using our extended contacts both in the overseas art world as well as domestically in the United States.
Our statuary is available as either an unpainted, or painted, hydrostone casting [as wells as other materials] in anything from simple colors to any metal finish you can imagine! You can also choose to have your sculpture painted with any custom faux color or texture you may need - built up in different paint layers to create the faux effect that only our staff of faux finish professionals can achieve. Many schools, colleges, and even universities use our painted, and unpainted, classic statues for their art classes, history lessons, and for individual artists to do their own art projects at school, or as homework, or for a hobby project involving working with an already sculpted art piece. Our statue collection is also great for gluing objects onto, to draw on with markers, or for painting on the surface to create a uniquely personalized work of art made by an individual, or completed as a group art project. Each reproduction is under strict quality control to minimize any imperfections that may occur. The surface of all of our statuary artworks must be refined after the casting phase has been completes and before any painting occurs. Sanding and chiseling to almost every casting is required where the seams of the mold were to achieve a smooth uninterrupted surface over the entire statuary art piece, and any random bumps are removed by by our staffas well. Finally air bubbles, or holes, that may have been created during the casting process get filled-in before the statue goes to our statuary paint booth for the final faux finishing.
Should you need a different size of statue, or statuary piece, than what you see available in our online sculpture catalog, we can sculpt it for you using our talented team of artists and sculptors. Recreating classic masterpieces is something we've done many times before from our work recreating Alexander the Great to enlarging the Hercules and Diamedes sculpture and even a custom enlargement of the Venus Di Milo. To enhance the presentation of a masterpiece we also make custom bases within any size parameters you require - at a museum level of display standard. Use any pre-existing columns, or dispay stands, from our collection of economical cast reproductions in hydrostone, painted in any faux finish of your choice - or made as a real marble carved column (fill out a custom art quote form for more info).
Browse our carved marble sculptures in our catalog of over 4,500 marble statuary pieces. We can custom carve out of marble a new design, or one based on a classical subject - depending on your art preferrences. We make only the best real marble carvings in the form of busts, heads, male and female full-figure statues, land and sea animals, mythical creatures, water fountains, and architectural elements like columns, fireplaces, staircases, hand railing, doorways, gazebos, benches, sinks, bathtubs, urns, planters, and even grave markers and head stones, and much more!
|Marble and Granite Color Options
Considered as a custom original artwork, a one-off marble carving can be created from a basic picture, or sketch art, that you give to our art department before commencing. Instead of having the marble artwork carved from beginning to end without your input, or if very fine adjustments are required for the sculpture to turn out according to exact specifications, then it may be best to start the sculpture as a clay [or plasticine, to be more precise] maquette, aka a sculptor's model, so that any modifications to the artwork can be made before it is "cast in stone," as the saying goes. After the intitial clay sculpture is finished and approved (where it is easier to make any changes in this particular medium) the marble carving process can then begin with full confidence. However, for a clay sculpture to be made, in addition to the marble carving, there is an extra fee - since technically it would result in two sculptures that must be made: one sculpted in clay, the other carved in marble. Often, our clients opt to skip the clay version and have our carvers go directly to chiseling the marble carving out saving time and money.
Using only a photo, or drawing, our sculpting team can make a bronze, aluminum, weled steal, or copper plated custom sculpted artwork for you from start to finish. Whether you are looking to have a portrait made of an important person from history, you need a custom trophy award, or you want an outdoor metal statue for your estate garden, our staff of artists and custom sculptors can custom sculpt and cast your artwork in any standard metal while keeping you informed throughout the entire process via pictures and regular updates - making you an active participant in the creation of an artistic masterpiece! Castings in bronze and other metals are available with standard patinas, as limited edition art pieces. Typical subjects for a bronze statue include: the head, a bust, torso, full-figure statue, torso, hand, foot, etc.

The types of wood we carve with regularly are rosewood, rain tree, ebony, walnut, mahogany, and redwood for laser etching applications.

Typically our portrait sculptures are made of athletes, sports figures, organizational leaders, company founders, presidents, historical figures, loved ones, etc. We make busts in any scale, from small to oversized, often only the head, bust, or a full-figure statue isrequested by our clients - at the larger-than-life scale (a 25% enlargement) or figurine trophy size. Usually the body of a person will need to be fully sculpted in the case of a body builder, an athelete, or for a nude figure; As was often the case with the classical style of sculpture art. However, for uses where the subject will be shown, and on display fully clothed, only the head, neck, and hands may actually need to be sculpted - essentially this would be a wax museum style portrait. The rest of the body's volume will be roughly and quickly sculpted in a relatively inexpensive material to hold the form of the majority of the body shape so that the clothes can be draped over the figure. Clothing on a statue portrait gives it almost the same look as if the entire body had been sculpted from top to bottom. Wax museum style portraits save a great deal of time and money, while keeping the quality highest for the important parts of the portrait sculpture, like the face and the bust.
Economical compared to bronze and just as classy, a marble carving can be custom carved for you, as a one-off; Otherwise, a clay artwork will usually have to be sculpted first, then a silicon rubber mold made, plus casting of the sculpture, finishing work to the surface, and any smoothing or texturing that must be done by our expert faux painters. Afterwards, a casting of the art piece can be made in a relatively inexpensive material like hydrostone, durable cement, lightweight fiberglass, strong resin, or wax to be used to make a real bronze metal casting.
In addition to marble carvings, cast bronze, or other portrait sculpture mediums we offer portrait drawing as well as portrait painting services where you get to choose the artist you want to commission to make an artwork for you based on recent examples of their previous works of art so you know what type of results to expect. Review a few of our top artists and pick an artist that is already actively creating the type of art that you want your portrait to look like. Select from a wide array of art styles including: ink pen art, graphic illustration, monotone painting, watercolor, oil, etc.
