DESIGN


A small collection of unique designs have been created. These are extensions of existing motifs in the artist’s work. 
Accuracy is at the heart of this creativity. It is the artist who creates: he pushes and refines the elements of each work. Unlike mechanical computer controlled creations, his designs emanate from aesthetic decisions, from the materials themselves and from his work precision.
Nonetheless, as a visual artist, he models upon techniques of computational architecture for creating architectural elements on the interior surfaces of buildings (floors, walls, ceilings).

His work makes possible constructed elements created to exact sizes, ready to be installed. Some have the advantage of creating visual space by their three-dimensionality. His designs adapt to straight, broken or even curved surfaces, while keeping their accuracy.
Most designs have no visual center and are unlimited in their horizontal and vertical repetitions. Thus, they can be created in any size. Visual compression and decompression of design elements play an important part in the rhythm transmitted by these static forms.

How to order a Design proposal?

To purchase an existing design?

For existing Cork Art designs, the designer or architect needs to provide dimensions and to specify the materials desired for imprinting the design. A cost estimate will be available for review and discussion at the creationdm studio.

To request a new Cork Art design?

New Cork Art designs can be created directly with corks - supplied by the client or in stock - or from new design images. The client should specify the design use, display space characteristics and color requirements, if any. A cost estimate for the creation of each design, when accepted, is due upon billing.

A rough idea of costs for a Cork Art design?

The cost of design work is divided into four segments:

Initial client discussion of renderings created for the client is without charge.

Creation of final designs (in the form of images ready for reproduction) is billed on a time basis @ $650 per day - a blended rate including the time of the artist and of a computer graphics assistant.

The actual costs of production and instalation (with artist supervision) are billed at 125% of cost. 

A royalty, if the client undertakes commercial production and sale of the design. 

Recent and earlier collages available?

What are Cork Art collage prices and conditions of sale?

For commissions, an estimated cost is proposed. When an agreed price is achieved, an invoice is sent. At the start of work, an advance is usual. A discount may be proposed for full payment in advance.

 

The completed collage is delivered upon reception of full payment. All packaging for transport, transportation costs from the artist’s studio, insurance, and other associated expenses, are charged at cost.

 

 

How are Cork Art collages created & priced?

About three thousand corks, selected one by one, from over ten thousand, are needed to create each medium sized Cork Art collage. Full months are invested in each square meter of a collage, often with double thicknesses. Accordingly, the current market price of a collage relates the artist’s investment in time, to its costs, and above all to its artistic merit.
