Lovely you are looking into getting a drum made just for you!
they are hand painted. Also, I will add little variations and changes to each drum as guided.
Color changes and small changes of design elements can be discussed. For the mandala designs it is in many cases possible to swap the middle circle motif with something else, for example a different flower or animal, or make color changes.
OPTION #2 Commission something totally new: None of the drums in the gallery speaks to you, you perhaps want a very specific motif? Ask me if I can create the drum of your dreams!
This option will cost more as it is very time intensive for me.
1. What motif would you like on your drum? Do you want a redesign of a drum from the gallery or something totally new? For a new design: It could be an animal, plant, symbol, etc. No human bodies or faces :). Please let me know the main theme, and if you want perhaps some additional, smaller symbols or elements added.
2. Do you have any color wishes? If you have certain main colors you'd like me to use, let me know. Otherwise I will choose the colors intuitively. Keep in mind I use markers, so I work with a limited color palette with under 40 color tones - see picture below.
If you have a website that represents your work / essence, I can create a drum fitting to that. Please send along the link. Alternatively, I can have a look at your FB or IG.
3. What is your intention for this drum? What wishes and desires do you have when you imagine yourself working with this drum?
4. What is your budget? Prices depend on complexity, so something more minimal will cost less than a fully covered mandala style drum.
5. What country do you live in? / Your post address I will need this information to calculate your shipping costs. I am located in Germany and I ship my drums worldwide!
Please note that during the creation/birthing process, I don't do back and forth mailing, showing a sketch, getting feedback, making changes.
I communicate before creating and once everything is clear, I create in stillness. The finished drum artwork will be a surprise.
I will send you a photo of the drum before I mail it out.
A Redesign will be done in 1-2 weeks and a totally new commission could take longer as I will need to draw a new template. Ideally, you ask me when your drum will be ready and I will give you a rough estimate. I prefer not to rush a creation, as each is still a unique piece of art with codes received just for you.
starting at 520€ (560 USD)
+ shipping costs: EU 20 € / UK 30 € / US 70 USD
Final price depends on complexity of the artwork.
I will be in touch with the exact price after you have contacted me with your wishes.
