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 design and research work is normally included in this tile price -within reason! This is charged for if the project is cancelled.
Occasionally an extra charge may be need to be agreed to cover extra costs, or time for numbers of further drawings and research beyond the initial package covered.
Price reflects the 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!
