I will sketch up some outlines from your ideas and share them with you (either face-to-face or via email). You select your preferred sketch, and I work it up further. At this point, I should be able to give you a completion price. For example, this frog would cost £120.
Once you have approved the more detailed sketch, I will begin your carving. This can be at yours – if I am working from a tree stump – or at my workshop – if I am using bought-in timber.
