How to commission glass art
Steve Robinson glass art ranges from small, decorative pieces to large-scale domestic, commercial and public space wall hangings.
Commissioning bespoke glasswork means that the aesthetics, textures and physical dimensions fit their space flawlessly, in all respects. It is a way of creating a new, unique piece. It is a simple, and thorough, five-step process:
The design brief
Steve Robinson will talk with you in detail about your ideas and aspirations and from that will formulate a design brief. This will take account of the style of the room in which the glass art will feature, the colours and materials used and the overall look and feel you want to create.
Clients often send us samples and paint swatches to match and, because we specialise in raw-colouring techniques, we’re able to build the exact shade they are looking for. We will confirm the precise cost of your commission. If you want to proceed then a non-refundable deposit becomes payable before the design work can begin.
From the design brief, Steve Robinson will produce a number of concept drawings. These will be discussed with you and refined (perhaps combining elements of each drawing) until your perfect design is formed.
You will be given, alongside the concept drawings, specially made glass samples enabling you to see the design colours and textures in their true form. These can be adapted as necessary until you are completely happy.
Once the design is finalised then the balance of payment becomes due. Production will begin once that payment has cleared.
When the glasswork has been made, we will send you some images so that you can make sure that you are completely happy before taking delivery. The entire commissioning process usually lasts between eight and twelve weeks.
