How do new Byzantine style Icons come into being? Have you ever thought of having an icon painted ‘just for you’ or a scared image commissioned for your Church, Birth of a child, wedding gift or other special occasion? St Peter’s Episcopal in Lewes Delaware has been an amazing support for my work. I want to introduce you to How to Commission a Christian Icon, New Spiritual Images for Today
Commissioned Christian Icon, New Spiritual Images for Today
If you are so inclined please send an informal email or phone call through this blog. Discussing ideas for potential icons is a delight, hearing what you have in mind for a Christian Icon or some specific saints image. The ancient art form of iconography is not fast or in any way instant so forgive the wait. The process can take 6 months from discussion to completion and delivery.
Prices Range and Details
considerably, depending on the type of board you would like, amount of gilding and gold leaf, repouse, the size and number of figures. Feast days and narrative icons are wonderful. The current cost begins with 400.00 USD for 9”x 12” I do not recommend feast day icons on such a small format – their detail and beauty is far greater on the larger format.
After our initial discussion, we agree to a timetable for your icon, its size, subject, board, cost and postage : at this point a deposit is payable so I can begin work in due course. I use secure packaging; tracked beginning to end by a courier, to ensure that the icons arrive safely and are insured in transit.
Commission your Own Meditation
Commissioned Christian Icons are New Spiritual Images for Today, and absolute joyousness to birth. They are a new image which comes to life, beginning with thoughts and desire for more beauty in the world. I look forward to helping you find the icon you are looking for, to inspire your congregation, to add to your collection or be the first one of many in a new collection.
