Description

We all do it. We each have our own unique experiences and preferences. From those we form the foundation of our worldview, which is constantly updated as new experiences flow. No two people share the exact same world view.

"Creating Your Own Reality" is about that situation where our experiences define the foundation of our opinion and world view - essentially, our own reality.

Most simply, the hemisphere represents the mind and our thoughts are flowing out from it, building the foundation on which the mind itself stands, in a somewhat figurative appearance. At the fore, we see a stylized mouth speaking from those thoughts. As with many of my works, though, the true meaning and purpose are open to your own interpretation and would be a great conversation starter.

This is an original unique sculpture created by me, William Deskin, carved from limestone, clear coated, and sitting on a painted wood base. This sculpture is 9.5" wide and 10" deep. The entire work is 6" tall.

My work is best viewed on a pedestal or other space where it can be viewed from all directions, but there are certain angles that are better than others. So, a bookshelf, wall shelf, or corner area would also benefit from this piece.

This particular piece has some very distinctive brownish color zones. One aspect of limestone is its unique surface appearance, as it is sedimentary and contains the skeleton fragments of tiny aquatic animals like coral. You can see in the photos above that these remains give the stone character and a somewhat mottled appearance. There is some visible cracking in this stone, which is also a natural aspect of this kind of stone. No two stones are identical.

* I have tried my best to recreate the colors, textures, and overall appearance of my work via photographs. I am not always completely successful. Most obviously, some color differences may vary across monitors.

If you have any questions or would like more views of this piece, please feel free to ask!!!

Thanks for taking the time to view my work. Have a great day!

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about this or any other of my sculptures! I'll be happy to answer.

Shipping cost is for continental US only. If you live elsewhere, message me with your address and I'll calculate shipping. All artwork is shipped with a direct signature confirmation.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept payment through Direct Checkout on Etsy, and via PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can still use your credit card to pay using PayPal.

I also accept Etsy gift certificates, which are perfect LAST MINUTE GIFT options, and a great way to let recipients select their own ideal gift.

Returns & exchanges

I want you to be thrilled with your purchase!

However, if you are unsatisfied, please contact me within 5 days of receiving your order. You’ll need to pay your own return shipping expenses, and return the item to me in new condition - this may require some effort to re-package the item as it was received. Upon receipt of your return, in new condition, I will refund you the full amount minus shipping fees.

If you prefer a credit or an exchange, that can be arranged also, with additional shipping costs.

Custom orders and commission works may or may not be returnable, depending on the item. I am open to discuss it.

Shipping policies

Because most items shown are already made, one-of-a-kind pieces, I will have those items packed and shipped from my studio within 1-4 business days.

Custom or special request items will obviously require more time before shipping, since they will be made after purchase. Photographic prints fall into this latter category, and typically take about 5 working days, as they are printed after an order is placed. The timeframe for commission requests will be discussed on a per-item basis.

All Items shipped to US addresses will require Direct Signature Confirmation.

I am willing to ship INTERNATIONALLY. Shipping costs listed in my shop are for the Continental US only. Please feel free to contact me (through Etsy) with your complete address in order for me to get an accurate shipping quote for you for shipping anywhere else.

For items shipped outside of the US, all brokerage fees, tariffs, duties, fees, and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. Please include your phone number when you are checking out as the carrier requires this in case they need to reach you.

ALL SHIPPING COSTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER.

US buyers: please make sure your Etsy mailing address is correct! All items shipped within the US will be shipped to your Etsy address, so make sure the one you have on file is correct. If you need it shipped to another address, please let me know IMMEDIATELY, as some orders ship the same day.

Purchased items will not be shipped until payment is received and CLEARED, no exceptions.

Additional policies

Custom orders must be prepaid after approval of finished product and before shipment.

Many items are unique pieces, and are represented as accurately as possible in my photos. I have tried my best to recreate the colors, textures, and overall appearance of my work via photographs. I am not always completely successful. Most obviously, some color differences may vary across monitors. Items that are not one-of-a-kind may vary slightly in size and shape from the ‘representative’ image, as each piece is hand-made. Part of the charm of hand-made work is that no two pieces are exactly the same. If you are uncertain, please contact me prior to purchasing. I will be happy to answer your questions or send additional pictures to help you with your decision.

If you are unsatisfied with your item after purchase please refer to the Refund Policy.

Returns or exchanges on custom orders are on a case-by-case basis.

** Please contact me if you are interested in a wholesale account and wish to carry my products in your retail shop.
