Commissions

Every commission is unique and is therefore discussed in a personal conversation at the studio. You can make an appointment by telephone or by e-mail, or you can simply drop by at the studio free of obligation (from 10am to 12 noon & from 2pm to 6pm on Fridays or from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays).


Some clients already know exactly what they want on their first visit, while others have no idea or have difficulties to express their wishes. Photos, designs, examples and a conversation with Maud will guide you through the journey from the initial idea to the finished product. 
In only a few steps you will decide on the type of stone, the font, whether you would like an antique or a new stone, whether or not the letters have to be painted, etc.


Once the commission has become clear, a quotation is provided. This way you always know what to expect before Maud gets to work. Since every commission is different it is difficult to provide general price estimation on the website, but to give you an idea: the minimum charge per letter is EUR 25.


The work will be started upon signature of the quotation and payment of an advance. As it concerns a craft, a waiting period will have to be taken into account. Depending on the scope of the project and when your order is placed, this waiting period may range from 3 weeks to 3 months.


Are you looking for something in a lower price category or do you have no time to wait? The online shop contains reproductions of works created by Maud Bekaert. These are cast in a durable blend of marble and limestone. The online shop provides a large number of texts, but it does not give you the option to provide your own text. All the designs are handmade.
