To Purchase

 

To inquire about or to purchase a work of art, please send your contact information and the title of the piece to Merck Studio using the form below.

 

All work will be professionally packed, crated and shipped. Taxes, shipping and handling costs will be added to the final bill. Thank you for your interest.

 

To Commission

 

 

The process of commissioning a work of art is time honored and straightforward.

For a bronze medallion, bas relief portrait or most other forms of art, a prospective client will share her or his ideas with Ms. Merck, which she will then render into a number of sketches.

 

Normally there is some back-and-forth during this phase in order to understand and narrow down the client’s needs.  Subsequent to the client’s final sketch approval and a price agreement, Merck Studio will prepare a simple contract.

The contract will show three stages:

 

      1. Down payment equal to 1/3 of the total price.  Upon receipt of the down payment Merck will begin the sculpture and work until she determines it has reached a good midway point for the patron to review the piece — not so much done that changes would be difficult but not so little done that the client could not get a good sense of the final product.

     2. A second payment, 1/3 the total price, is made upon approval of the work by the client after the mid-process meeting with the artist described above.

     3. The final payment is due upon completion of the work.

 

 

Merck has done portraits of living and deceased subjects, landscapes, animals, and buildings. She looks forward to new design and sculptural challenges and to fulfilling her client's expectations.
