Elle Décor magazine (Nov 2012) conducted “The Luxury Survey”, a survey of more than 400 members of Elle Décor’s Designer Registry. “Quality beats everything else in determining what constitutes true luxury, with 68% of designers citing it as the single most important factor. No other aspect reached even double digits in the survey.” When collecting contemporary sculpture, quality should always be a major consideration. Is the craftsmanship of the highest quality? Does the artist have the skill level to execute his vision? Has the artist taken the same amount of time and effort to complete the sculpture as the time and effort put forth in creating his vision? Next time you are looking for a sculpture take a look at the execution in the creation of the sculpture. As in anything, quality always shows through.
