For private commissions the terms and conditions are simple:
Between us we fix a price or price range for the work we decide on, – often an up to price is more realistic, and yes, it can happen that you get some change, but I won’t promise.
I will ask for a 50% deposit upfront, to cover subject research, materials, design and labour. Please note this is non-returnable. Depending on the size of the work I may ask for another 25% at the halfway stage, and the rest of the payment is due when the work is handed over, most of the time though it’s 50% up front, 50% at the end of the work.
As I’m a bit of a perfectionist and quality freak, obvious when you look at my work on this site, you will find there are no shortcuts or shoddy work to be seen, whatever your artistic taste. I am a NETT qualified tiler and forum moderator on tilingforum.co.uk, have studied mosaics with the legendary mosaic master Saad R Mikhaiel in Egypt and stone sculpture with the wonderful Janet Hollins in Harrogate, which means both technical installation aspects and artistic flexibility are a given.
Just give me a ring, tell me what you envisage, and together we will come up with the perfect solution for you.
