Commissions – public and private

I have worked with a variety of clients to create bespoke glass pieces from domestic house number plates and fan-lights to large scale windows in public buildings.

I am Level 3 City and Guilds qualified in glass design and I enjoy working closely with the client and producing designs which can be modified to reach the best solution for the job.

There are three stages to the commission process:

  1. The initial discussion leading to a working design, which can be further modified. The cost of this would normally be 15% of the total cost or £50, whichever is the greatest. This is agreed and paid at the outset.
  2. After agreeing the design, a time scale is worked out and a further 25% of the full cost is paid up front (for materials).
  3. The project is constructed and full balance is paid on delivery.

Examples of past commissions :

Most recent public building commission – Colchester Sixth Form College, Balkerne Gate commemorative window for the IT Building – 2018.
