the colors chosen will be supplied on request. The work is meant to enhance and blend with the colors the client is

occurs with you throughout the process?
The mosaicist and interior designer will generally communicate by phone and email. Project reviews will
occur for the design, colors and tile selection, midway progress and at the end. In-person meetings can be arranged.
How will the mosaics
The mosaic will be hand-delivered to the contracting source, either the interior designer or the client at which
time final payment will be due.
Who is responsible for installation?
The mosaic requiring site installation will be the responsibility
of the interior decorator or their client. The mosaicist will be glad to recommend professionals to install pieces and suggest
products to use. Grouting in the agreed color(s) and final cleanup of the mosaic may or may not be a part
of the installer’s work. Mosaic will be adhered either on paper or mesh and cut for delivery
and installation into pieces less than 20 inches on a side. The cost for the installation is not included in the mosaicist’s
charges. The mosaicist and interior designer will work together to arrange the best installation for the beauty and longevity
of the work.

an idea of the cost?
A budget, timetable and contract will be implemented and the first half of the project cost
will be due on signing by the interior designer or the client. Cancellation of the project by the interior designer or client
before actual mosaic work begins will require payment of the design fee and any materials acquired to that point. Cancellation
after contract signing will result in all design and material charges including artist’s time ($25/hr) expended to that
Project Price is based on the following:
- Design fee
- Cost of the tiles
- Artists fee: the square
footage of design X a basic cost according to intricacy of the work (between $100 and $150 per square foot)
to and from non-Rockport locations for in-person meetings, but not for delivery of the finished mosaic. 48 cents/mile.
