COMMISSIONING A NEW DESIGN
The process begins with you, a concept for a Ritual Object and one our Collective Artists.
Once you have an idea of what kind of piece you are looking for, either contact Hiddur or browse our Collective Artists page to see whose design style and choice of materials suits your needs. We will put you in touch with your Artist of choice and they will discuss the scope of your project and outline the requirements before beginning the design phase.
Typically a non-refundable design fee ranging from $200-$1000 (depending on the scope of the project) is required in order to start the design phase.
When a design and price for your 'Object' is settled on, the design fee is then subtracted from the initial deposit on the work.
COMMISSIONING EXISTING WORK
Placing orders from Hiddur’s Collective Collection can be done at anytime. Existing work can often times be customized in different materials and dimensions varying from what is pictured in the Collection. Pricing is subject to change from the displayed Collection price depending on materials chosen, specs or quantities.
Lead times for Commissioned New Designs vary, given the nature of the work and the time required to make each piece. It is not uncommon for our Artists to be booked six months in advance.
Work is booked into their timeline based on a deposit.
PRICING & PAYMENT
Once the design of the piece, timeline and budget are agreed upon a 50% deposit minus the design fee is required before proceeding. The remaining 50% is paid upon completion of the work, prior to delivery or shipment. The Artist, whenever possible, meets with the client in person and delivers the work themselves. For greater distances and international orders much of the communication happens online or over the telephone. Samples and final work is crated and shipped at the clients cost when applicable.
