Pet Portrait Commissions

Would you like a three dimensional, ceramic portrait of your pet? I would be happy to make one for you. I aim to illustrate the character and personality of your pet, so I love to hear stories about them so that they can feed into the finished piece. 

Here are some examples of recent commissions:

You can see my portfolio of recent commissions here, which includes some behind the scenes shots of work in progress. So far I have only been asked to make portraits of dogs, but I will happily consider other species.

 

How to commission me to make a portrait of your pet

Commissions take around 6 weeks to complete, but please do specify if you have a specific date in mind, and I will see what I can do.

Portraits are available in 3 approximate sizes:

Small (no taller than a coffee mug, 9cm) £95

Medium (taller than a coffee mug, but no larger than a pint glass, 15cm) £145

Large (about the height of an electric kettle, 25cm) £225

 

Getting started

In order to make your pet portrait, I will need 5, high resolution images: close-up of the face, whole body profile left, whole body profile right, front and back views. It is also helpful to have a picture of your pet in the position you would like replicated in the portrait.  If you live in north London, I would be happy to come and meet your pet and take photographs for you.

deposit of fifty per cent of the price is payable on acceptance of the commission, with the remainder to be paid upon completion.

Please email me if you would like to commission a pet portrait. If you have something slightly different in mind, please ask. 

 

Gift Cards

Gift cards are available – email me here (put Gift Card as the subject) with details of who your Gift Card is for, and what message you would like to add. I can also add a photograph of the relevant pet if you like!  I will send a you a PayPal invoice for the deposit, see above, and (upon payment) send an email Gift Card to your friend or relative. All very simple!

Here is an example of how your gift card could look. All your friend or relative has to do is make contact with me, stating who bought them the card (easier to remember than a code), and we can we can make a start. Please see small print at the bottom of this page*.

 


Everyone loves a lurcher!

I made this lurcher from memory, based on a combination of a friends dog, and the ones I see when I’m out for my morning walk.  He’s not perfect, but he’s very cute! Available in my shop.
