How to Make a custom order with Burnt Offerings …
Question - I have seen something I like but its not in the Available section
Please still make contact with me, I maybe able to source a similar piece or we can talk about putting the design onto something completely different, there are many possibilities.
Question - How do I see your new pieces
Every week I create new pieces for the week. I put these up for sale on Sunday around 4.55pm. They will appear across my social media pages and on this website. All pieces for sale, need to purchased via this website.
Question - How do I go about asking for a commission piece
First step is to make contact with me. We will then discuss what you are looking for. I have a large stash of items ready to be upcycled and I may have something suitable or I can source a piece. I will send photos of piece/s that might work and you can choose any that appeal. Once the piece you want has been established, I will ask you what you like or any ideas you have for a design. I will create a design on my computer and send it through and once you are happy with it, I will start burning. I may ask for a deposit at this stage. Once I have finished the commission, I will send a photo and if you are happy, full payment is then required. Once funds have cleared I will send your unique piece to you.
Question - Shipping costs
Question - How do I pay you
The shopping cart at check out, gives you the option of bank transfer or credit card payment via an invoice sent to you. Credit card payments will incur a additional fee.
Question - Would you work on something i already own
Yes, as long as the piece is suitable. I can not burn onto bamboo or custom wood. Most wood pieces will need to be sanded before I work on them, as I don’t like to burn through varnishes or other finishes. If your piece is glass, I can not guarantee that the glass won’t crack while I am working on it, so if you are happy to take the chance and I feel the glass is thick enough for etching, I am happy to work on it for you.
Question - Can I come and have a look at your pieces
Yes, I work from home in a lovely studio. The studio is only open to the public by appointment, so just make contact to arrange a time and date.
Question - Do you send pieces overseas
Due to the extreme cost of sending items overseas, often costing more than my pieces, I only send to NZ addresses.
