Price Guides:

Below are some pricing considerations to act as a general guide. Actual prices may vary depending on size, complexity of the work, and deadline (for commissioned artwork).

Other useful information:

All artworks must be pre-paid prior to shipping or delivery. See below for our Layaway Plan. Please let me know if you discovered the work you wish to purchase via a gallery or dealer.

Crating and shipping will be quoted after you contact the studio about purchasing a Borsheim artwork. The price you will be charged is the quoted price for the artwork, plus any applicable sales tax and shipping fees.

All prices are in U.S. Dollars.
Borsheim Arts Studio accepts company or personal checks, as well as payments via PayPal. If paying via PayPal, please contact the studio and later you will receive a payment request via e-mail. Pay PayPal directly, not the studio.


All artworks are 100% guaranteed to please and in the event they do not please are 100% refundable (not including crating, shipping, and insurance fees) except in the instances described below. Once you receive your Borsheim artwork, look it over carefully to insure that nothing was damaged in shipping. If it has been, notify the studio immediately, and together we will resolve the issue to your satisfaction. If for some reason you do not like the artwork as much as you originally did, please contact the studio. Once the refused artwork is received back at the studio, you will receive a refund of the price of the artwork (shipping not included) or, if you prefer, a credit towards another work.

The exceptions to the 100% guarantee policy are noted below. Namely, for layaways that hold artwork from being sold to another party (especially on one-of-a-kind works) and for commissioned work. However, in the case of commissioned work, if the art is not so specific to the original patron that Borsheim Arts Studio would be able to sell the work to someone else, then the nonrefundable deposit may become refundable.


You may purchase existing/available Borsheim artworks via a layaway plan, if you like. Usually a one-third non-refundable deposit of the artwork price is required. Monthly payment amounts after that will be mutually agreed upon, but often, you decide the amount and date each month that you will pay. In other words, YOU set the schedule that works for you. Payments are interest-free, unless a payment is missed. After the price of the artwork has been paid in full, as well as any applicable sales taxes and shipping fees, you will receive your artwork.
If at any time, you change your mind about wanting the work, all paid monies -- less the deposit amount -- will be refunded or you may transfer the entire balance towards purchasing another available Borsheim artworks.

Commissioning an Artwork:

An artwork is considered a commission when the client, not the artist, requests that a specific artwork be created. Commission prices will be discussed and then quoted on an individual basis. Generally, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required before the actual work has been done (and generally after a design has been agreed upon). Although this deposit is non-refundable, it is transferable to another Borsheim artwork in the event that the commission is cancelled.

In the case of a bronze sculpture commission (new work), payment installments will be made as follows:
  1. one-third nonrefundable deposit required to start the actual sculpture
  2. one-third payment due upon approval of original sculpture (in wax or clay, prior to moulding and casting)
  3. final third due upon completion and delivery of artwork

Pricing Sculpture

Sculpture is much more difficult to price than paintings are. Several reasons include the uniqueness of each work (the KIND of space the work uses and its complexity), the labor involved (which tends to be somewhat more physical and involve more people than the creation of 2-dimensional art), time, and the expense of the tools.

Stone sculpture is one-of-a-kind and each time I start a new stone piece, I start completely from "scratch."

With bronze sculpture, I usually offer a pre-casting (10-12%) savings for those who have the vision of being able to imagine what the bronze will look like while only viewing the clay or wax original. Also, the price tends to go up a little as the edition sells out. To learn about pre-casting and other special offers, please contact the studio and request to be added to the (e-) mailing list.
