A commission begins by discussing your ideas for the piece youâ€™d like created, as well as the artistic process and interpretation of your vision. I will then assess the project to determine cost and timeline. Considerations for both include the size, complexity of the design and materials to be used. Once the project is approved and the work of hand cutting and applying tessarae has begun, periodic emails with images and updates will be provided. You will also be welcome to visit the studio to see the progress of the project first-hand.
