Commissioning an original piece of glass art for yourself or someone else is a very personal and creative process. I’ve been blessed over the years to be hired by both art collectors and interior designers to create custom, commissioned works of glass art for both residential and corporate art collections, and I want to share my top tips with you that will help make your commissioned glass art piece something you can treasure and enjoy looking at forever.
Why have glass art commissioned?
Art is very personal. It should be a true of expression of who you are or represent a special time or place in your life that you want to remember and treasure. Plus, it’s going to be displayed in your home, so it needs to be in line with the aesthetics of your interior, the colors of the room and be in proportion to the size of your wall.
Seth Godin said:
“Art is anything that’s creative, passionate, and personal. And great art resonates with the viewer, not only with the creator.”
Commissioning glass art is a true collaboration process between the artist and you, so it’s really important to be able to communicate what it is you want. My Ultimate Guide – How to Commission Glass Art walks you through the process of choosing a color palette, right through to working collaboratively with your artist to achieve the piece that you want.
Quite often, art collectors or designers approach me because they love my work, but they want something that’s really unique to them. They want to be part of the creative process – and that’s what makes it all the more special.
