Commissioning Engraved Glass

Hand-engraved glass is an ideal medium for gifts, presentations and other commemorative events.

If you feel that a piece of engraved glass, or a set of glasses is appropriate for your needs, please do not feel inhibited from approaching me by email, to discuss your requirements. I would be happy to discuss, explore and bring out your ideas for a commission without any obligation on your part.

Do ensure early on in the discussion that I am aware of the price which you are expecting to pay. Glass engraving is a hand craft technique, and many hours of design will have gone into the finished work, so it will be priced accordingly.

If you decide to go ahead at this stage, I would wish to discuss in detail with you the exact type and size of glass, and I will work closely with you over the final design. I will, for example, take great care to ensure that the final design is entirely suited to your needs, and that you will be the owner, or presenter, of a work of art which will continue to give pleasure over the years.

To give you some guidance, I have a page of blanks which Bob Crooks has blown for me for previous commissions. Bob is willing to blow glass to my specification, as agreed with the client

As a guide to the scope of possibilities, I have compiled a list of recent commissions with short notes on the principal motifs leading to their commission.

I believe that commissioning work is an activity involving exchange of ideas and discussion. This can be done either face-to-face, or by email and/or telephone, Please write to me or telephone at either of my studios listed below, or email to arrange a meeting if you wish to have a piece designed and made for you.

I do however, from time to time, have pieces executed for exhibition display which I make available for sale. Look for the link "Occasional Sales" on the Home Page.
