Antique lighting dealers and vintage lamp specialty companies requiring bent glass panels should know I stress perfection.

My professional portfolio is broad, from a lighting fixture in Korea to the Christian Science Center in Boston. Brows and enjoy some the bent glass projects I have completed. To be less intimidating repairs range between $75-250 for small jobs. Day projects can be priced. Before doing so, you may wish to look over and digest the costs of the repairs, which I set forth as follows.

A (mold) must be made from your original broken or good panel. Our master mold making method requires about 8 hours of labor to complete. The process requires 2 kiln firings to set the mold at 900 degree's. It also requires a paper patterns displaying the mathematical shape of a bent panel after bending. Each glass panel bent on our mold (limit 6-8 per mold). It takes about 2 hours and in some cases of compound bending we perform a test bend before doing a copy.
Custom mold- (1-12") $125 Custom bent glass panel - (single or compound bend 1-12") $85ea Basic Box Shipping is $28.50 (up to 4 panels UPS-glass boxing and insurance) Domestic ground only. Click here to print our PDF basic panel order form.

If your lamp requires additional labor by us to remove and replace the damaged panels or other repairs then a rate of $65.00 per hour, in 1/2 hour increments will be applied.
If a lampshade will be shipped to my studio. Please note lamp shades shipped to me (must) be bubble wrapped, use peanuts and must be double boxed. You should also insure for the value to avoid any losses via your shipping method. The additional labor plus OUR return shipping will be applied to your final bill based on weight, size and zip code using the method above via UPS ground.
