Commissioning

Are you interested in a piece of glass artwork? Then I would love to help you. If you would like to phone for a chat, my details are at the top of this page, or send me an email via the contact page. Take a look at one of the galleries of work to see if you like my style!

Before starting any design work I will visit you at the proposed site of the piece of glass to discuss ideas and requirements and to get a feel for the environment and available light.

After this you will receive design ideas and price quote for discussion, before agreement of final design.

Q&A

strong Do I have to pay for the whole job in advance? | No - you pay nothing until a design is agreed, then 50% of the quoted price to cover the cost of materials, and the balance on completion.

strong Can I have a stained glass window in double-glazing? | Yes - there are a number of ways of displaying glass artwork in a window and still retaining the safety and energy-efficiency of double-glazing.

strong Does glass artwork add to the value of the house? | Absolutely, especially in a front door, it's the first thing people see as they enter the house - estate agents love features like stained glass which add to the uniqueness of your property.

strong Is it difficult getting the work installed? | No - most handy-men could cope, but I am happy to quote for installing the panel for you if you prefer.

strong If you design me a window, will I see the same one elsewhere? | No - I don't use templates, each window I design is unique.

strong 'Stained glass' or 'leaded lights' - what's the difference? | Leaded lights are the clear glass windows, often in a grid pattern, joined together with lead strips. Stained glass is a coloured design (strictly speaking one containing 'silver stain', a compound used to create the glorious yellow through to umber colours in church windows).

Any other questions don't hesitate to ask!
