purchase

from the forest to you

There are several options for how to make a purchase, whether you've found just the right piece of art that speaks to you or whether you are commissioning a new creation from the studio

We typically invoice for carvings using our accounting software which accepts payments online. In the gallery/studio we accept cash, debit and credit. Payment plans can be set up for new commissions.

It all starts with a conversation.

Purchase Art

Contact us to let us know which piece you're interested in. If the art is finished and ready to go we will make individual arrangements with you to accept payment and arrange for shipping. You may claim works of art in progress with a deposit.

Shipping fees include insurance while in transport, any necessary custom crating and packaging materials.

If local/regional, installation services can be provided for an additional charge.

Pricing is in Canadian dollars and taxes apply. We are able to ship internationally.

If there is something similar in Gordon's portfolio, let us know which pieces are of interest to you and what you like about them.

What is Pricing Based on?

We set our prices based on the experience of the artist and the requirements of the piece.

Artist experience can be self-taught, learned by mentorship, through formal education, or by time spent studying the work of other artists.

Some materials are a dream to carve, others are a challenge. Complexity of the work is based on the demands of the material and what it takes to execute the design on that specific piece.

There are also operating costs associated with running a studio, like having specialized tools and equipment and taking care of them.
