If you are interested in commissioning a stained glass window, door panel or decorative piece, the procedure is usually as follows:
If you are local, Flora will make an appointment to visit you and discuss your requirements, or you may prefer to visit her workshop (by appointment) where you can see reference books and glass samples. If you are not local, you can still proceed using email, phone and post.
Once initial design ideas have been discussed you will be given a ball park quote. If you are happy to proceed, Flora would then finalise design ideas and send you sketches (if required) and a formal quotation. At that stage you will be required to pay a one third deposit to confirm the order.
Once the deposit has been received, the full size plans would be drawn up for you to approve and the glass can be selected (samples can be posted or viewed at the workshop).
From this point, lead time is usually 3-6 weeks, depending on workload. The balance is payable on completion of the windows. Fitting of the windows can be arranged, or you may prefer to undertake this yourself.
Prices for stained glass can vary enormously depending on the complexity of the design, the type of glass used and whether there is any kiln-fired painting involved. As a general rule, you can expect to pay £80 - £300 per square foot plus fitting and/or delivery costs.
