Each project can vary wildly in the amount of research and drawing, or making needed, so I price for each job, but for the majority the following will give you a general idea.
Your individual initial set of designs is included in the tile price + I set of modifications. NB.This work is charged for only if the project is cancelled.
Further drawings will be charged at£50 each . New glaze colour research for a project will be charged for at an agreed rate.
Prices are for the UK only. No V.A.T. is chargeable. Price reflects the cost of materials and amount of work needed, so for example a panel using multiple layered glazes costs more; it can include up to 30 glazes – each individual glaze has to be weighed, made up, and then applied- It takes time!

All PACKING, POSTAGE / CARRIAGE are EXTRA at cost. If practical please collect tiles- Packing safely for post or carriers is expensive. eg. 170 tiles = 5 large boxes [each 10kg+] = 8 hours wrapping and packing safely, added to cost of carrier!
