COMMISSIONING STAINED GLASS
“I seek a distinct solution to every project. Whether in a private home or a public space my stained glass is designed to be noticed.”
Jude Stark prides herself on providing the very best in commissioned stained glass. All clients enjoy the full benefit of her comprehensive and personalised design service.
Commissioning a stained glass artwork is an exciting and multi-faceted process. You are invited to experience this process with Jude.
We are always happy to advise on feasibility and costings at an early stage of any project.
HOW TO COMMISSION
The first step towards commissioning your stained glass is to contact Jude by email or phone to discuss your project and arrange a site visit if required.
This consultation and site visit is free of charge and without obligation. It allows you to meet Jude and discuss your requirements and ideas in depth. Jude will make an assessment of your project and prepare an estimated costing for you.
In cases where a site visit is not possible, you may wish to arrange to come to our London studio. Please see contact page for details.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Designs evolve from exploratory in-depth discussions with you. Ideas are developed drawing on Jude’s extensive knowledge and creative visual design expertise. All aspects of your project will be taken into consideration to create unique and exciting stained glass design.
A sensitive appraisal of the location, architectural style and decor in conjunction with your own individual taste all contribute to the formation of design ideas. Practical concerns of function and installation are also vital componants of the design process.
Following discussions and appraisal, colour design sketches are developed and presented to you for discussion. A specific design direction is established for further development.
Finally a full scale colour cartoon is produced and presented to you on site for approval prior to manufacture. Glass samples are presented throughout the process of design development.
Your involvement in this process is paramount to creating our unique stained glass that reflects the individual requirements of your commission.
Our design process is highly personalised and an invitation to our studio to see the applied skills of the manufacturing process is encouraged as part of our service.
Whether your requirements are simple or complex, our completed stained glass never fails to fascinate and enchant.
It is always advisable to allow for as much time as possible when commissioning stained glass as the process can takes weeks or, in the case of large projects, months to complete.
Jude Stark’s stained glass is made to order and every project is unique. Costings are therefore always given on an individual basis.
