Consultant on large mold-formed glass heads?

Hi - I've blown glass a minute, and made some fairly sizeable pieces - up to 20" diameter closed form lights, and 28" chandelier bowls, etc.

A designer is asking me to price a job that would require big glass made in molds. I have not used molds before, and this size is quite large for me. I have worked with her before, and would like to satisfy this order for her.

Anyone out there I could hire as a consultant for an hour phone conversation (or two 20 minute calls) to determine if this is a realistic project for my studio, and later for several hours here and there over the next couple months to get into the nitty gritty of producing these?

Alternatively, anyone who has done anything close to this before who wants to talk to me about taking the order? I do not have any interest in someone else who would 'try it'. I will 'try it' myself, and I do not want to send this to anyone the designer (who is very particular, and a bit difficult) will be unhappy with when they don't deliver.

The order also calls for one low-relief face (I'm thinking slumped or cast glass) 35" wide x 39" tall.

Thanks for any thoughts!
Brice
