Quick guide to buying a sculpture edition

  • Dimensions

    Consider the dimensions of the sculpture and where you want to display it. Does it fit? How will it interact with its surroundings?

  • Weight

    Take into account the weight of the piece, which is noted on the edition page. Heavy works may require advance planning for installation and placement.

  • Shelves or pre-existing surfaces are not the only options for displaying a sculpture – consider using a plinth!   Tip: many collectors use our custom sculpture boxes as plinths. Or, for a more premium option, a turning plinth will let you view the work at 360 degrees.

  • Care

    Don’t be intimidated by the upkeep of a sculptural work. Always feel free to ask our team for advice on the best way to care for the sculpture. It's often as easy as dusting with a microfibre cloth!

  • Consider the colour and finish of the work. How will it compliment or contrast the rest of your home?  Glass works, for example, will reflect back their surroundings – something to keep in mind when you’re imagining where to place a sculpture.

  • Is there enough natural light to illuminate the sculpture? If not then you may need to consider artificial lighting, like spotlights or lamps.   As sculptures are 3D objects, light has a big impact on the way a work looks when displayed in a space – from the finish of the sculpture to the shadows it casts.

  • Installation

    When installing a large or heavy artwork, we recommend placing baize or some other material underneath in order to avoid scratching or damaging your furniture.

    If you’re unsure, get in contact with our team to ask!

  • Evolution

    A sculpture piece is sometimes subject to evolve with time.

    Bronze or wood works might shift slightly in colour, for example. We think this is a beautiful example of how art lives and grows with us! But if you’re ever worried that something is not right with your work, let us know.

  • Space

    Make sure the work isn’t in the way of daily life and could get knocked over.

    Smaller items work really well on mantelpieces or shelves, as close to eye level as possible. Larger sculptures look great at turning points so that you can appreciate them from different angles

  • When handling a sculpture, make sure to use gloves. When you buy a sculpture from Avant Arte this will be provided.

Sculptors at work

Studio visits are a tradition shared between artists, curators and gallery owners, meant to facilitate meaningful discussions. During a studio visit, an artist will tour their studio space, showing completed or unfinished pieces, and sharing the nuances of their creative process while illuminating themes and ideas most critical to their work. Studio visits answer a visitor’s most burning questions, like why a sculptor chose to work with ceramics. Or the reasoning behind the colours used.

The discourse brought on by studio visits has the power to deepen a collector’s understanding of their favourite work and the artist who conceptualised it. The thing is, collectors can’t take part in such visits, which can alienate them from the work they own and the artists they love. To bridge this gap, we give collectors access to conversations they wouldn’t get anywhere else by filming our studio visits and posting them on our website.

At Avant Arte, we’re obsessed with empowering collectors by providing exciting opportunities that they might not otherwise have, and that runs deeper than giving collectors the opportunity to buy outstanding works. We give collectors exciting opportunities to learn, understand and enrich their relationship with art.
