Commission Process

Great art starts with a meeting of the minds.

Steven Bush, the owner of smARTworks, loves meeting with clients to bring their vision of functional and beautiful metalwork into three dimensions by crafting metalwork to life.. A visual thinker, Steven uses those in-depth conversations to craft free-hand sketches – the first step in a successful commission process.

Clients are involved every step of the way, from the first meeting to the final installation of the piece. Steven’s gift as an artist is to be able to create several different iterations of a client’s idea of vision, and then investigate the many ways to bring it into existence.

Steven wants his ideas to expand on his client’s ideas and dreams, opening possibilities and limitless potential for the art.

Once a design is chosen, Steven refines the drawing and quotes a price – and he is only limited by the budget of clients because his talent and imagination are boundless.

For art connoisseurs and those who appreciate unique yet functional design, Steven’s process provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for clients to work exclusively with an artist to bring their vision to life. This relationship with Steven is about more than just creating art – it’s about building a relationship and making an investment in a lifetime piece of beauty that will bring joy for years to come.
