Frequently Asked Questions

Please read our FAQ before sending us a message.

We will need to know the shape, color(s), size, and ideal turnaround time of the piece you would like. This information will allow us to determine a price quote for your piece.
We can also have our artists design pieces around a budget, but custom work ranges $150-$300/hour, depending on the complexity of the piece and risk of it breaking and needing to be remade.
For custom pieces, we require a down payment of half the cost to begin work, with the remainder due when the piece is completed. Large projects, such as chandeliers or outdoor sculptures which require an initial meeting, drawing time, follow-up meetings to discuss designs, etc require a retainer and have a different payment schedule, which you can see in the next question.

For the site visit, design work, and a follow up meeting to discuss Ryan’s ideas, there is a $1000 retainer.  This will be applied to the total cost and is non-refundable.
Upon agreement on a concept, a 50% deposit is required for work to commence in the studio, and the retainer folds into this cost.
When the project is completed, 25% of the cost is due, with the remaining 25% to be paid the day of delivery and installation.

The time required will depend on the size and complexity of your piece(s), as well as the studio’s prior commitments.  Small pieces average 2-3 weeks.  Custom chandeliers require a design consultation, drawings, and follow-up meetings before work in the hot shop can begin and will take more time.

We are able to incorporate a small amount of cremated remains into the glass to create keepsake pieces for friends and family.  Sculpted hearts, paperweights, or ornaments offer beautiful presentation, but we are open to your ideas and honored to be a part of creating a remembrance of your loved ones.
