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 slag glass panel. My 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.  After making the mold it then takes about 2 hours to bend each panel of slag glass on the mold.  Installation time and labor can vary depending on the method of installation.
Custom mold- (1-12") $125      Custom bent glass panel - (single or compound bend 1-12") $85ea
