Tony Ingarfield Forgework

Commissioning

The commissioning process is a natural progression and usually follows these steps:

1. Initial contact - This is when you get in touch with me via phone, email, see me at a Show, or pop into the forge, and you tell me what you would like to be made. Hopefully at this stage you have some idea of a motif or theme for the item as it should compliment your personality and the location in which it will be sited. An idea of your budget would also be helpful at this time.

2. Design and quote - from all the requirements that you have given me at the initial stage, I will produce a concept drawing or sample piece; this may require a site visit/survey. This is when things can become more technical, and making, fixing and finishing options can be discussed. Once all the options have been agreed I will produce a quote. Once the quote has been accepted, I will generally ask for a deposit to cover the material costs and commence the making as soon as possible.

3. The making - this is where things get hot and noisy! I might have to make tools and jigs specifically for your job to assist me. Once made I'll send it to a specialist galvanizer and/or sprayer to get a professional finish applied.

4. Site fixing or delivery. The final stage is site fixing, or if no fitting is required you may want the item or items delivered. This is when final payment is normally required, and where you are hopefully delighted with the end product.
