************ Store Christmas Update **************
Firstly of course and no matter what happy holidays to you and your family and friends.
Orders placed from and after the 21st of December 2020 will be crafted, finished and shipped from January the 4th, 2021.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic weekly bulk shippings are being organised to not have to ask the courier to come for every single parcel as well as to keep emissions down. Even though myself and everyone is doing what they can delivery delays are still happening but I try to upgrade as many deliveries to a tracked service as feasible, by order value and shipping destination, to help manage these better.
Even though I relay on regular material deliveries and on the shipping companies in my workshop it is still just me. A 'covid secure' environment is the aim as well as to dispatch your kind orders within the usual 3 to 5 business days from January.
Please allow me to thank you for your ongoing support and I will do everything I can to keep you up to date in regards to your order. I appreciate any request and all kindly sent emails and I will answer within 72 hours.
How long until dispatch?
Concrete Sculptures & Vessels are made to order and usually take 3 to 5 days.
Photographic Art Prints are generally dispatched within 2 to 4 business days.
Bespoke Designs will take longer and will be quoted during the process.
To craft and finish items on demand is my way to keep crafting in small batches as well as the option of personalisation to embrace uniqueness with every piece. However, if you are in a rush or need something at a specific date, please get in touch with your requirements!
Standard shipping options are available to the UK, Europe and North America. Partners are Royal Mail & Partners, GLS, DPD UK and UPS.
Free shipping is being offered by order value and destination.
UK shipping is free when your order value is £30 or more. European shipping is free when your order value is £70 or more.
Should you live in an area where standard shipping is not being quoted during checkout - please contact me as I will need to check by weight and size which shipping options are available. No worries, I will sort this asap for you!
!PLEASE NOTE__ when shipping internationally custom fees [Customs Charges, Taxes, Additional Postal Fees] might occur when your package arrives.
The buyer is responsible for any of those fees.

What is a 'Certificate of Authenticity'?
The certificate gives proof that this artwork is an original artwork created by PASiNGA. It is not only signed and dated but also numbered and gives other important information about the photographic art print or sculpture.
Photographic art print - good to knows
In general you will find a mark on the parcel where it would be best to start the unwrapping process. Please be careful with knifes and
scissors to not harm yourself but also to avoid cutting too deep into the parcel.
Make sure all tape and maybe dirty packaging is moved out of the way before you start to unwrapping your print.
To avoid damage it is particularly important to handle everything with clean dry hands or maybe cotton gloves. The oils from your hands can effect the PH of the paper and even reduce archival qualities.
For straight/envelope shipped prints please gently remove the print from the cellophane sleeve taking special care that the sticky side of the sleeve does not make contact with the art print.
For tube shipped prints please prepare a clean flat surface where the print can rest for 24 hours.
Take the print carefully out of the tube by sliding it onto the prepared surface. Now gently take off the protecting thin paper. Be careful not to bend the rolled paper as these creases will be permanent. You will feel that the print is moving to unroll itself, be careful with pressure or force as it may leave permanent marks.
Please don't put anything on top or pull on it - it is the best to just let it rest for a bit. Once the print has flattened / is straight again it is ready for framing and to be enjoyed.
Concrete sculptures and vessels - good to knows
Once your concrete sculpture is dry it will have the strength of and behave like terracotta or air-dried pottery. Water and rapid temperature changes will always be an enemy and your concrete art will age, change and interact with it's surroundings. Over time the colour will change or cracks occur.
Most of the concrete creations are not sealed and can't handle water very well. This is great when they are used with Air Plants as these plants and the concrete interact in a similar way with their surroundings. However, if you wish to use it with a different plant or as a vase which holds water you need to seal it.
Many tips and more concrete adventures can you find on my Blog section 'How Concrete'
Air Plant - good to knows
