How to make a custom order with Burnt Offerings…

I have seen something I like, but it’s not in the available section

Please make contact with me as I may be able to source a similar piece. Alternatively we can talk about putting the design onto something completely different. There are many possibilities.

How do I go about asking for a commission piece?

First step is to make contact with me so we can discuss what you are looking for.

I have a large selection of items ready to be upcycled and I may have something suitable, or I can source a piece. I will send photos of pieces 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 you a photo. If you are happy, full payment is then required. Once funds have cleared I will send your unique piece to you.

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.

Would you work on something I already own?

Absolutely, 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. 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.

How do I pay you?

The shopping cart at checkout gives you the option of a bank transfer or credit card/debit card payment. Credit card payments will incur an additional fee.

Shipping costs

I have included postage and packaging into the cost of each piece. At check out you will be asked to pay an additional $8 if you live at a rural address.

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.
