Pay only for David's time
You provide the surface (or indeed wall – the artist paints murals too), and David will turn it into your own bespoke piece. The prices of many of his pieces are in part determined by where the 'surface' came from, and how much it cost to source and purchase. Maybe you have an old table, a set of antique letters or postcards, a wooden drawer or tray – something that means something to you.
Or, invite David to come and look around your barn / out-house / basement / attic. This way, you only pay for his time.
Maybe you've seen one of David's exhibitions, and you'd like a small souvenir. Postcards, sketches and matchbox-works are frequently available. Contact the artist directly to see what's in stock, or visit his eStore.
Due to the nature of Cass' works – his use of antique objects – the surfaces will naturally show evidence of their previous function. No artworks ever leave the studio without thorough termite investigation (in the case of wooden works). But be advised that when bringing wooden items into your home, you shoud check your own home for woodworm or damp. These factors will of course influence your painting. Damp environments are not advised for watercolour works, or works on metal.
Many metals used show evidence of age – this is welcomed by the artist and adds merit to the works – but to avoid rust from spreading it's best to keep in a dry and well ventilated environment. Watercolour works especially should not be hung in bathrooms. It is not advised to store works on metal (or, in oil) wrapped. By wrapping works you may be sealing in moisture – which may cause deterioration to the surface of your work.
If your artwork has been waxed, you will be advised of this upon purchase. Waxed artworks will require extremely light buffing one or two times per year, and must not be wrapped for prolonged periods. The artist advises the delicate use of an extremely soft bristled (natural-hair) polishing brush. All other works are partially sealed with the appropriate fixative. This provides a medium level of damage limitation but can not protect against (for example) spillages, exposure to steam or frost or surface scratching.
Of course, it's your decision how to display or care for your work, but the artist must stress that these are fragile works. They will remain as stable as such works can if they are properly cared for. For more cleaning or dusting advice please contact David: firstname.lastname@example.org. Owners must be aware that any hanging or care decisions are their own responsibility, whether the work comes fitted with hanging devices or not.
Commissions + Terms of Sale
Updated April 2018
You pick the size and the subject: the artist is happy to travel. Cass has worked around Europe on commissions for private individuals, as well as businesses – notably Frasers Apartment Suites, and Quartermile Edinburgh. David is part of Bespoke, the Mall Galleries commissioning service too. Please read the below.
*General payment: if commissioning work, clients must be aware that if initial payment (whether arranged in full or by installments) is not met within 30 days, the quote will increase by 5% for one month. If payment is still not met an increase of 10% for one extra month will apply; and thereafter the artist has the right to terminate the contract. The artist requests clear and open communication directly.
If sale is agreed on existing works, and payment is not made within 2 weeks, a deposit will be requested. Thereafter, the same rules apply as when commissioning work.
**Outcome of a commission: the artist decides when a commissioned work is complete, though requests for minor alterations are often possible at the artist's discretion. It is important to be aware that when commissioning works for specific spaces (wooden/found works) the surfaces that the artist sources may vary very slightly though always be fit for original purpose.
