I am happy to answer any of your queries personally (as, admittedly, I am the only one here).
I have included a short list of answers to some general queries below, but if there is absolutely anything else you want to know about any of my creations please just let me know.
How do I commission something and will it be hugely expensive?
Commissioning work is a) easy and b) not as expensive as people seem to think.
Tell me what you want, approximate dimensions (especially if it has to fit a specific space) and what kind of things you like - comtemporary design, traditional etc.
From this I will send you a design with an associated cost. If you are happy with these you will need to pay a 35% deposit then we can start work.
If you have a specific budget for the work I am happy to try and work within it to come up with the best solution for your price range.
A lot of people ask why are you called Dalmatian Creations? Many think it is in some way linked to the region in Croatia called Dalmatia, but it isn't.
Nor is it really to do with dogs.
Dalmatian Creations isnt in fact really a name of a company. It is the company. It sums up the way I approach each project. This business was borne out of a desire to change my own way of life and become my own boss - to do something different while I was still foolish enough to do so without worrying too much about the "what if's". Whenever I was in a world of my own thinking about starting a business I kept seeing a man walking his dog - a Dalmatian. From then on, seeing a Dalmatian would make me think of starting a business. Once this trigger word had well and truly taken up residence in my subconscious, you would be surprised at the number of Dalmatians there seem to be in the North East.
So I built a business around this trigger. A Dalmatian creation is something created from a small spark of inspiration - the smallest of things can inspire, so you have to keep an eye out for them. Just in case.
