Commissioning John Makepeace

"Commissioning is a creative initiative often inspired by a practical need to give expression​ to our times."  
John Makepeace

In addition to commissions for private and corporate clients around the world, John is represented in many permanent collections including: the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; the Museum fur Kunsthandwerk, Frankfurt; and the Arts Institute, Chicago.


The commissioning process has five distinct stages:

  1.  Detailed discussion to establish the client's requirements, an indicative budget and timescale.

  2.  A letter from John Makepeace will confirm the above to include:
    - a summary of the client's brief
    - the proposed budget, including stage payments.
    - the anticipated timescale

  3.  The preparation, presentation  and approval of the design proposals.

  4. The making.  Following receipt of a deposit, regular photography will record work in progress.

  5. Delivery and installation.
