It’s always good to meet a client in person during the initial stages of a commission but it is by no means essential.
Increasingly we find ourselves conducting the entire consultation and design process via email and phone where clients are not within easy reach of our studio. This was very much the case in respect of this piece we produced for the new-build property of a client based in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Based on an original design by Lightworks artist Abigail Fielding, the entire process of adapting/amending the design, choice of colour and glass type, frame configuration and dimensions were all sent, discussed and confirmed via email backed up by numerous telephone conversations. As with this project, it is very often necessary for us to liaise directly with a clients other contractors in respect of production dimensions and specific structural details.
On completion of production we took a quick trip down the A1 to Kent and back to install the commission on site.
