Frequently asked questions...

What is the process for your art?  The glass is fused together in a kiln, then mounted over aluminum that has been polished to
match the design.  I make the stand offs myself and they are exclusively used for my own art and not available for sale.

Can these art pieces be installed outside? Once the aluminum has been polished, I spray automotive clear coat before installing the
glass. This prevents any type of corrosion when installed in outdoor living spaces.

Are they heavy? The weight depends on the piece, for example the "Oceanic Splendor" 60" X 30" weighs 60 lbs.
"Paradisius" 46" X 22" 35 lbs, "Odysseys" 10"X 52" 15 lbs. "Crystal Reflections" 12" X 24" 9 lbs.

How do they hang on the wall? Each piece is ready to hang with picture wire hangers installed on the back. Simply locate where
you want the piece to hang and use picture hangers or gorilla hooks.

How do I Order a piece?  Simply send an email of the piece you are interested in to me and the process begins there.
I can then quote prices and let you know what I have available or if I need to make one for you.

Are these pieces in stock?  I do try to have a version of every piece on the Glass Art page to sell at art shows, if not,
I can make one for you.

Can you make a custom piece? Absolutely, custom sizes and colors are available.
Each project is unique and I work on them one at a time.

How are these pieces shipped? Any art piece up to 24" can be shipped UPS with no problem.
The Paradisius and Crystal Reflections(46" X 22") can be shipped in 2 boxes by UPS and some assembly is required.
Odysseys can be shipped in pairs. Larger pieces are shipped via freight and on a pallet.
I use museum quality boxing and crating to make sure the piece arrives safely.
What is your Return Policy? We want you to love your new art!  If for some reason you are not satisfied, simply ship the piece back
to us and if we receive it in new condition, we can issue a refund.

What is your payment policy? Once we reach an agreement for purchase, I will send an invoice to you by email.
You can then pay direct from there.

Do you have a gallery?   YES! And its really cool too.
    I made it from recycled materials from Hurricane Rita. The rest of the studio is also a conglomeration of recycled material buildings including...The kiln room, fused glass
    shop, metal working shop, spray room and an observation tower overlooking a pond. Visitors are by appointment only. We are located in a rural setting about 30 minutes
    north of Lake Charles LA. We are located 2 1/2 hours from Houston and 2 1/2 hours from Baton Rouge. Picking up your new art piece directly from here is the best way to
    see where the inspiration came from, saves shipping costs and risk of breakage.
