Can Van Tetterode restore glass?
Yes, we can restore very well (UV-bonding), provided you still have all the pieces. Costs are € 50, - per hour plus € 5 for the UV lamp and the glue.
Can I rent part of the glass blowery?
No, we only let the glassworks as a whole, per day or half day.
Can different types of glass be melted together?
That is not possible. But different types of glass can be glued together very well.
Can blown glass be hardened?
No, that is not possible.
Can Van Tetterode imitate an industrially blown lamp?
That is difficult. Often these bulbs are blown into a mold, that we obviously do not have. Making a mold of a single piece would be a costly affair.
Can a broken lamp be repaired?
We generally cannot melt a broken lamp together again. But glueing is possible.
What size of a job can I ask Van Tetterode to do?
Van Tetterode Glass Studio can accept assignments of almost any size.
Rent and other costs have to be paid by return at receipt of the invoice. The amount must have been received by us before the first day of renting.
Should the actual cooling time be different from the reserved cooling time, then the appropriate cost will be settled afterwards with tenant.
Cancellation must be done in writing. Free of charge cancellation is possible up to four weeks before the rental day. After that and unless tenant can find a replacement himself, the whole amount is due.
Customers who take an option on a rental day should confirm this to Van Tetterode Glass Studio at least one week before the rental day. If an option is not confirmed in time, the rental day in question may be given to another customer.
Tenant will leave the hotshop tidy and clean, including emptying the water buckets, putting away casting sand, cleaning up blow molding tools and molds, siding colors and sweeping the floor.
Failing this, we will charge € 25.

If the tenant causes damage to the equipment and tools of if same are lost, the tenant is liable and will reimburse the damages to the landlord.
Tenant is entitled to reimbursement of the rental amount if the cooling ovens or garage malfunction or if landlord cannot make the reserved equipment available. However, landlord is not liable for the tenant's costs of materials and labor, and cannot be held responsible for the consequences caused by electrical failure due to faults at the energy supplier.
In the case of "bad glass" on the rental day, it is the tenant's responsibility to report this to the landlord before 10 am. If the tenant decides to continue working, or if the tenant does not report 'bad glass' by 10 am, tenant cannot claim any rent reduction.
Although there have never been any problems to this day, work with glass continues to be risky. Lessor assumes no liability to the tenant for any damage or injury.
The landlord has the right to refuse a tenant without giving reason.
