Nick Duval-Smith - Private Commissions

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 

In August 2001 I completed my biggest 
commission to date, which was for Hope and Sons, a Dunedin funeral parlour which has an extensive collection of local art.
Hope and Sons requested a feature for their chapel (right) and a group of free standing pieces (below)
for an atrium.

This is the maquette for the chapel relief, to give you some idea of how initial concepts can change with scale (the piece above is about 300mm wide).
