The client wanted a panel for her entrance hall that could be viewed from two sides. I designed a panel with solid and fretted ceramic and alternated this with chunks of stained glass: all to be supported and surrounded by a carefully made wooden frame. This very early commission taught me a good lesson. I sub-contracted a cabinet maker for the wood work and he had to scribe all the wood to fit the uneven ceramic pieces. I did not think to ask for a quote before he started on the work, and understandably he charged me plenty for what he had to do. I thought that I had given a realistic quote for the work but I ended up only just breaking even.
