"I would like to employ The Weathered Mason's services to have one or more ornaments of someone else's property crafted as a gift for their enjoyment."
Whenever I come across an ornament of a landmark in someone's house, they are usually of famous structures that they maybe visited one holiday.
The Statue of Liberty
The Eiffel Tower
Rarely are they truly unique works of art, or locations for which the owner holds any particular emotional fondness. Employing The Weathered Mason's unique skillset, the next addition to such a display shelf could be a beautiful and faithfully hand-crafted celebration of the very building in which it stands!
An intricately detailed, pure white sandstone ornament, presented on a quality engraved wooden base. The overall size of the ornament will naturally vary depending on the real-life dimensions of the property, but I sculpt them to fit either a smaller or larger oak base. The measurements for the oak bases are 10cm x 10cm (small) or 15cm x 15cm (large).
If this doesn't quite seem to describe the service you're after, I also offer the following:
The Weathered Mason's Process
In order to sculpt a truly faithful likeness of the premises, my first step is to visit the property and photograph the exterior from different angles. I do this using a very small drone that's equipped with collision avoidance and intelligent flight technology, and I myself am an experienced drone pilot, with 128+ hours logged flight time.
All without incident.
I'm generally finished photographing within an hour, and at no point will I need to enter the premises, unless it's the only way to gain access to photograph the rear of the property. In any such case, I'll be sure to do so while complying with the current covid restrictions.
I then take these photos away and use them for reference as I sculpt the ornament in intricate detail. I delete them as soon as the ornament is complete, as I take my customers' privacy very seriously. The ornament is then adhered to a quality wooden base, and engraved with "Home", or a custom engraving of your choice, before being carefully packaged up and made ready for delivery.
My charge for this service is £450 for one ornament, whether large or small. This includes all postage and packaging. If you would like to employ my bespoke gift service for several people, please see my discount pricing structure below for multiple purchases.
You may settle the entire bill all at once, or you may choose to pay in two instalments. I require at least £250 per gift recipient as an initial payment before I visit any premises. After I've photographed the property(s) of your gift recipient(s), I'll send an invoice via email for the remaining fees. Once settled, I'll start sculpting the ornament(s), which will only take a matter of a couple short weeks.
If you would like more than one of each ornament, I charge £10 per each additional ornament, with no upper limit.
I offer discounted rates if you would like to employ my services for up to five gift recipients. The rates are as follows:
The £10 per additional ornament(s) of each remains undiscounted.
