FAQ's


How long will it take to receive my order?

All of our geometric art sculptures and glass pendant lights are individually hand-made to order by glass artisan, Asaf Zakay and there is currently a waiting list for his pieces.  The current waiting list time is 24 weeks.  If you need your sculpture sooner, please do contact us as we may be able to assist and move things around for you.

We will always do what we can to help.  Please contact us for assistance.

Is is safe to send the glass sculptures via post?

Yes.  We have an extremely safe packing system that we have developed over many years.  We have sent from Australia to the US, Canada, Japan and Europe with no issues.  We use several layers of double-sided eco bubble wrap, packing beads and thick custom made cardboard boxes.

Can you send outside of Australia?

Absolutely.  We can send our pieces safely all over the world. We have recently sent sculptures and lights to Spain, USA, Canada, Switzerland and South Korea!  Please note that the client is responsible for any import tax that your country may impose.

Can I visit the studio or see the pieces before I buy?

At this stage, the studio is unfortunately not open to the public - however we are still available for Skype or Zoom chats, phone calls and would love to share images and videos of our work via email.  

All artworks are made to order - so we don't have them on display for immediate purchase, however, our team would love to share information and photos/videos of the pieces with you, so please get in touch.

Can I order in another currency?

Yes.  On the order page, please see the drop down menu with other currencies that we offer. Please note that for overseas orders that you may be responsible for import tax.

What is your refund and return policy?

On the very slim chance that your sculpture or light arrives broken or defective in some way, we will replace it for you (by making  new piece or repairing the original piece if possible).  Contact us at info@zakaystudioandgallery.com

If you change your mind about your piece, unfortunately we are unable to offer a refund as all artworks are made to order.

Can I order directly with the gallery rather than online?

Absolutely. Feel free to call or email Asaf or the Gallery Manager, Jodie, anytime and we will be more than happy to take you through our range of geometric art ceiling lights and find the perfect piece for you. Contact details are here.

Are there any other glass types available?

Yes.  We are also able to use sapphire blue, rose gold and emerald green in the clear glass range.  For dichroic glass, we can also use dichroic blue and dichroic green.  We can also do a mix of glasses. Please click here to see the full range of glass types.

How do I install my light into the ceiling?

This must be done by a licenced electrician.  Unfortunately we cannot take any responsibility for incorrect installations which may cause the components to fail and the light not to work.

We provide you with one metre of cable, to which your electrician can adjust to make shorter if needed.  If you think you may need more than this, please let us know in advance.

I need to replace the globe in my light

Our pendant lights take a two-prong 12V halogen globe.   We recommend using a 20W globe.  The brand of globe we use is the "Sylvania" as we have found them to be of the highest quality and they last 2000 hours. Please note, that it is important not to touch the halogen globe, it can be easily damaged by any oils on your hands.

How do I change the globe in my glass pendant light?

Our 20 watt halogen globes last up to 2000 hours, however there will come a time when you will need to change the globe - it is a very easy process.  We have prepared a video to show you how.  Please note, that it is important not to touch the halogen globe, it can be easily damaged by any oils on your hands, causing it to not work.

Will your glass pendant lights work outside of Australia?

Yes.

When your glass pendant light is ordered with a half-moon or full-moon stand stand, we provide you will a fully adaptable plug that can be used in any country.

If the light is purchased without a stand (which means it is being installed by an licenced electrician), you will need to ask your electrician to use the correct transformer to suit your country*.  We will provide a chrome fitting to cover the transformer.

* If you are in Australia, we will provide you with an Australian transformer.  If you are outside of Australia, when your electrician comes to install your light, please ask them to bring a compatible transformer.  This is generally an inexpensive part.

Do your pendant lights work on a dimmer switch?

Yes.  When your light is installed, talk about this with your electrician.

Do you offer a design service?

Yes.  Asaf is able to sit down with you and the plans to your new home or renovation and assist you in choosing the perfect geometric ceiling light for your space.  This can be done face-to-face or over Skype.  Please contact us to make an appointment.  Learn more about the Zakay Design Service or complete this form to tell us more about your space.

Do you take commissions for hanging pendant lights?

Yes we do.  If there is something you would like, but can't see it on the website, we would be more than happy to make something especially for you.  Please see previous commissions here.

How do I care for my glass sculpture or light?

We recommend the use of a soft cloth  If it is really dirty, you can dampen the cloth a little. Do not use excessive water or chemicals.

We recommend you don't spin the light or sculpture as this can causes fraying of the cable.

How do I choose the correct stand size?

On the product pages, at the bottom of each image, we have listed the size of the sculpture.

stands for glass sculptures

Each stand also has it's size listed.

When choosing a stand, there are two important considerations:

* Ensure the sculpture can fit into the stand, with around 5-10cm clearance
* For a glass sculpture (without the light), please ensure you order a stand for "sculptures" or if you are ordering a light, order a stand for a "luminary".

We understand choosing a stand size can be confusing.  We are available to help anytime.  Please contact us.

 Can I suspend my glass artwork outside?

Undercover is totally fine, many customers do that.  But we do recommend to keep your sculpture under-cover and out of the rain to ensure longevity.

Are there any other finishes available?

Yes, we can finish your glass pendant light or sculpture with a copper or a black pantina.  There is an additional cost. Please contact us to discuss.

Where is the Studio and Gallery located?

We no longer have a retail gallery space, however we are available on the phone and via email and can set up Zoom meetings to take you through our range.  We apologise that at this stage we are not set up for visitors.  Please get in touch though as we would love to take you through our range.

Do you do lay-by?

Yes. We are more than happy for you to pay off your sculpture over time at no extra cost.  Please note that once the item is paid off, the 24 week waiting list then applies.  At this stage, due to volume, we do need to prioritise orders that are fully paid. Please contact us to discuss.
