What does a commission process look like?
As you may know from seeing previous posts here I have been happily and excitedly working on a fused glass commission piece for a sea side home.
The overall panel, divided into 3 segments, is framed in steel, and measures 23″ tall by 68″ long.
These pix show some of the process as I play with the orca imagery in paint, felt pen. I also created with orca imagery in a couple of trial size fused glass panels you can see here.
This process developed over the space of a few months.
Sometimes large commissions can take several months from start to finish, depending on how busy my studio is and what is the timeline for the project.Â Â Sometimes it waits for a renovation to be completed, or a new house to be finished.
I like to have time to mull things over, for the project to have some breathing room in my head before it takes life in glass, wood or steel.Â I am fast “muller” at times also. It is variable.
â€œMay what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.â€
â€• Rainer Maria Rilke
I love it when a project FLOWS like this one did. Stay tuned for pix of the finished piece on my next post!
