Decided you want a Lumencrafter light sculpture? Most of our business is commissions; let us know which design you love and Reid’ll construct a sculpture along those lines for you. But no two Lumencrafter sculptures are ever exactly alike.
Want something special? Reid loves doing custom designs. Here’s how to start the process:
- Consider which of Reid’s sculptures appeal to you most.
- What colour, shape, or materials do you like?
- Do you want to light up a space [functional lighting] or create a mood? Or are you simply wanting to create a centre of interest in a certain space?
- Do you already know where you want to place it? Wander through your home and imagine your light sculpture in particular spaces. Are you thinking:
- wall sconce, floor sculpture, pendant, table or ceiling light?
- battery-powered, plug-in or wired-in, worked by a light switch or remote?
- light effect: moving or static?
- Check out the prices of our sculptures and think about your budget.
- Measure and photograph the space where you’d like to place it.
- Send us an email with the photographs, space dimensions and details. email@example.com
- We’ll contact you to set a time for you and Reid to talk.
- If you’re comfortable, we’ll video-conference so you can see a variety of sculptures in our home setting and we can see where you want yours to go.
- We come to an interim understanding; Reid does some sketches and maybe a maquette if it’s a totally new piece for a special space.
- You and Reid agree on a concept, design, materials, timeline, budget. This may take a few conversations.
- We draft a contract; you sign it and send us 50%; the balance is due on delivery.
- Reid can install it for you, if it requires special wiring or careful hanging, and if you live within 150 kilometres of Flesherton, Ontario. Basic installation fee is $100.
An acquaintance walked in to our living room, saw City of Light, and said, “Can you do me one like that?”
Reid certainly could and did – but, as Reid said, “You never know when the Muse will demand changes in a concept.” The new version was made with a transparent acrylic tube, instead of a wire cage.
Making a maquette starts with pencil, paper and scissors, proceeds to cardboard and sometimes plywood models. There’ll be no pingpong tonight, I’m afraid.
