Commissioned Work


Over the 2016-17 school year, our students completed over 45 commissioned orders, valued at over $25,000! Our students do awesome work!

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions below and contact our Production Manager, Jessica, to commission your own glass project.

What Is A Commissioned Order?

If you are preparing for an event or milestone, or simply looking for new art for your home, you can commission Hilltop Artists’ Team Production students to make your glass art visions a reality. Our students can create (almost!) everything: paperweights, floats, awards, jewelry, and sculptures. You can see a few commissioned pieces from recent years along the bottom of this page.

Please note that our students are not able to create light fixtures, or repair broken glass items.

How Much Does It Cost To Commission Glass Art?

Due to the custom nature of commissioned work, your project may cost more than similar items readily found in our gallery.  Orders range in price from $35 to $1,000, depending on color, size, shape, quantity, and order deadline. Additionally, Washington State sales tax will apply, as well as shipping costs (if shipping is required). The lowest price for a commissioned item is $35. While quantity is a factor, there are not discounts for bulk orders.

We usually require a 50% advance payment before work begins. This payment will be refunded in full if for some reason we cannot complete the work.

Will You Ship My Order?

Yes. We will ship commissioned orders. Please note that you will be responsible for paying the cost of shipping, which may include the cost of packing materials. Please be mindful of shipping time if you are commissioning an order that you need to arrive by a specific date.

How Far In Advance Do I Need To Place My Order?

We request orders are placed at least 60 days before they will be needed. Our Team Production program follows the school calendar so Commissions are only accepted from September to June.  The summer is dedicated to learning new techniques, preparing for the Hilltop Artists Visiting Artist Residency at Museum of Glass, and performing hot shop maintenance.

I Want To Commission Hilltop Artists!

Awesome! Contact our Production Manager, via email or phone (253.571.7761), and we will be in touch to discuss your order. Thank you for supporting Hilltop Artists with your commission!
