It is lovely when I get asked to do commissions for customers who have a special idea for a piece of glass they would like to have at home or give to someone as a gift
See below for some examples of completed commissions
Commissions are a collaborative process and require lots of open communication between artist and client to make sure we are all clear about the desired product and process. I am always happy to chat about what might be possible and whether I can help. I will always be honest about what is achievable, taking into consideration glass stocks available, time, processes and skill set!!
Is bespoke glass expensive?
The term 'bespoke' is often interpreted as expensive, but it doesn't need to be! Bespoke simply means that the customer has a say in the design, shape, size and colour of the piece that they commission. It is made to order and personal to the customer. If you would like me to replicate a piece that I have already created, but just in a different colour or with some slight changes, it is likely that it will be priced as the same or very similar to the original piece. Commissions for completely unique pieces are likely to cost more, but I will always discuss budget and agree a cost before the glass is made. I ask for a 50% deposit at point of order.
If you would like to discuss a possible commission, please contact me via the form on the contact page or email email@example.com. I would love to hear from you!

The Bass Guitar
I was asked to create a piece featuring a bass guitar for a musician who was celebrating a special birthday. This piece was created on stone opaque glass, with kiln fused black vitrigraph and murrine. Mounted on a white wood block for hanging. He loved it!
This lovely customer had a love for the Northern Lights and wanted me to create a scene with black mountains in the foreground. After searching for some very special artisan glass, I was able to create this beautiful freestanding wave.
I was asked to do a unique piece of glass for a special 18 year old. The brief was to incorporate her love of music and ballet, her initial, the number 18 and her favourite colour green.
She loved it!
This customer loved the statement piece on my home page which is a transparent circle with a mosaic, painstakingly designed with more than 20 different hand cut blues and greens, mounted in a stunning handmade iron stand. The customer asked for a similar piece but in the colours of the rainbow. I LOVED the finished piece and so did the customer! It looks stunning with the sunlight behind it.
