Getting someone to take on a small custom project is difficult in most cases - as I soon learned, trying to find someone to do some bronze work was even harder. The commercial/industrial foundries weren't interested, most of the retail-level service providers don't allow for much consumer input or customization and anything done overseas involves shipping costs that will can exceed the cost of the project.
Brett agreed to take on my project - he produced a custom design, informed of all the steps in the process and provided an exptremely reasonable quote. He was creative, communicative and easy to work with. The final product was beyond my expectations.
