“Sculpture commissions from private individuals or public organisations are an exciting part of my work as a sculptor and I’m proud to have sculptures in private collections and public spaces around the world. I enjoy, not only the sculpting aspect, but the whole process from initial consultation to final installation.” (Hamish Mackie)
Hamish will consider bronze sculpture commissions or silver. Initial discussions will include what you are interested in commissioning, the medium, size of sculpture, your budget, time frame and installation. This may involve providing photographs & measurements and, if it is a big commission, a site meeting for Hamish to see the space where you intend to display the sculpture. He is very experienced in working collaboratively with clients, architects, builders, interior designers and landscape designers and will advise on all aspects of installation and maintenance.
Hamish will show you the original clay model of the sculpture prior to it going to the foundry to be cast, so any minor adjustments can be discussed. It takes three to four months to cast the sculpture and wherever possible he will oversee the installation himself.
“Working with Hamish was very easy, it just seemed meant to be. I suppose I took a leap of faith when I commissioned him, but the sculpture has turned out beyond my wildest dreams. It looks like it has always been there. He’s captured the bird’s jauntiness and the slightly rough, rural feel that I wanted, in the texture of the bird’s plumage and the muscularity that shows beneath. Unveiling the sculpture at the investor’s launch was also an unveiling of Hamish’s incredible talent.” (Dan Szor, Founder & CEO, Cotswolds Distillery) You can read more about Hamish’s Bronze Pheasant sculpture for Cotswold Distillery on the blog.
“Berkeley’s vision for Goodman’s Fields was a Piazza that would stay in people’s memories for years to come, and at the same time create a locality that reflects the heritage of this great site. We held a competition and we loved Hamish’s enthusiasm. The concept of the bolting horses won the design competition from a field of 40 sculptors – a fantastic achievement. Hamish – your vision, your energy, your passion – these are the reasons why we awarded you the commission.” (Tony Pidgley, Chairman, Berkeley Group) You can read more about Hamish’s Goodman’s Fields Horses here.
“Hamish also understands people and business. His ability to work across the board with the architects, designers and builders involved with the project, to understand the project logistics, his flexibility and problem solving skills make him an exceptional public artist. His enthusiasm for his work and his boundless energy are a source of inspiration for everyone who worked on this project with him.” (Nancy Minshull-Beech, Arts Curator)
