If you are interested in a bespoke piece of glass I am very happy to have an informal chat so that you can get an idea of what your idea might cost. Please feel free to call or email me (see my contacts page for details).
Below are a few notes to give you an idea how I work when I get a commission.
1. Initial ideas
You might already have some ideas in mind for a commissioned piece of work or you might prefer it for me to make some suggestions. Although most artists like to have a degree of creative flexibility, I like to work with my clients to come up with some initial ideas, timescales and costs. It is also important to establish if there are any limiting parameters – for example you might have certain colour preferences or size restrictions etc. I prefer to have a face to face meeting but it is always possible to do this over the phone.
2. Working up ideas
Once we have had an initial discussion I will work up some design options based on our conversation; design, colour, size, timescale as well as the estimated cost will be taken into account at this stage.
3. Refining and deciding
I would suggest a phone call or meeting to discuss your commission in more detail. If you are happy to proceed I will confirm the agreed brief in writing. A 50% deposit of the final fee would be paid before work commences; this is to cover initial design time and materials.
4. Keeping you in the loop
Depending on the scale of the project I like to keep my clients in the loop and you are always welcome to contact me for updates.
5. Finished work
I will contact you once the work is complete and to arrange delivery. I will also provide any special care instructions. Final payment is settled.
