Katerina works closely with a range of venues in the hospitality and corporate sectors including hotels, restaurants, offices and lighting companies.
Working to a brief, the project is executed through meticulous care and communication to fully grasp what the client is looking for. Time is spent on as many in person or telephone consultations that are necessary before quoting the project and the bespoke sample process can begin. As no two projects are the same, new samples are created for each client to show the quality of work on a smaller scale to the finished works, also ensuring both client and maker share the same vision for the commissioned works. The handmade making process is documented and shared with clients keeping them in the loop every step of the way. Hand delivery is Katerina's preferred method of transport, showing the works the level of care it deserves; a truly bespoke service from start to finish.
Commissions are also taken for private residencies and gardens where Katerina creates one-off works including stained glass windows, fused glass wall pieces, home and garden sculptures, and anything in-between. Katerina is able to work closely with interior designers to create bespoke works tailored to the customers desires. Past corporate and commissioned works include a wide range of handmade gifts for guests in the hotel sector, a lighting commission in the corporate sector, private residencies wall pieces, garden sculptures, stained glass windows and contemporary tables, restaurant serving bowls and hotel covid screens. A particularly large scale commission in recent years has been the design and manufacture of many pieces for a bespoke hotel spa including a nine metre reception desk and food and beverage area, an ice bowl plinth feature, floor to ceiling shards of heavily decorated glass, large scale wall pieces and in keeping bar seating area separators.
Many processes have been used in the creation of the corporate and commissioned works to date including fused, stained, cast, blown, UV bonded, toughened and waterjet cut glass. Feel free to get in touch if you have a project in mind and Katerina will be on hand to assist.
