Did you notice there are no prices on our pieces? Since they are all hand made to order, each on has a different price. I have listed our pricing formula for you. If you need further assistance, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pricing for custom work varies with each picture, however, this is a general guide.
There is a $25 consultation fee for all custom pieces. This includes design, alterations on design and pattern drawing.
BASIC PICTURE COST
Our pictures range from $125-$150 per square foot. This is calculated by multiplying the length and width, then dividing by 144.
What is included in this? This is the “materials” cost and includes: glass, foil, came, chemicals, solder and framing.
PRICE PER CUT
$4.00 per cut. This means it is $4 for each piece of the picture. If the picture has 15 pieces, an additional $60 to the basic picture cost.
This is the “labor” cost.
Sun Catcher Pricing
Prices begin at $6.00 per cut. No basic picture cost is included.
Prices begin at $15.00
$3.00 per section. Sometimes a picture will require painting on top of the glass.
Glass containing golds, reds, oranges are more expensive.
Specialty glasses such as Mottled, Stippled, Fractured and Streamers are also at the top of the price chart, as they require special fusing
Handling and Shipping Costs
As all my work involves delicate glass, when shipping, I always have to be very careful. Each piece is generously wrapped in “bubble wrap”, then packed in either peanuts or additional bubble wrap.
Once you decide on a design, you will be billed 1/2 the total prior to work beginning and then the balance of the piece when completed through PayPal.
Metals Used to Color Glass
The recipe for producing colored glass usually involves the addition of a metal to the glass. This is often accomplished by adding some powdered oxide, sulfide, or other compound of that metal to the glass while it is molten (hot).
