With a commissioned sculpture, an artist creates work for a specific setting. This allows the client to select the artist, the scale, and materials and to have input with the design. The client makes an advanced deposit, the artist completes sketches, and June LaCombe oversees the agreement, design, payments and completion schedule. Some artists work primarily through the commission process, others not at all. Commissions are agreements in trust with the artist and the client and, with experienced oversight, can be a creative process for both.
