Our One Finger Salute beeswax candles are hugely popular, but we often hear "I could never burn it!"... so we thought we'd give you a more permanent option - in concrete!

Perfect for relieving stress and giving yourself a little confidence boost every time it catches your eye, this sculpture is also very popular for waving at people who need it.

 This also might be the most versatile gift out there:    it's wonderful given as a symbol of solidarity and standing up to the world, or.... let's face it, everyone knows someone they'd like to give the finger to.  Which way you meant it?  That's for you to know and them to guess!

 

Handcrafted by Kev & Dee, our concrete sculptures are made to our own special formula, which gives a beautiful white concrete with a smooth-marble like finish, while retaining occasional rough concrete texture. 

We now offer four finishes:

  • White - our naturally white concrete sealed with a satin finish.
  • Gold - Gold paint over white concrete with a satin finish.
  • Black - Black paint over white concrete with a gloss finish.
  • Unfinished - for our artistic friends, we now offer all our concrete decor as unfinished¬†"blank" so you can decorate it as you like.¬† We have used acrylic paint and alcohol inks with great results, but a range of mediums could be used - and of course we'd love to see your finished pieces!

Each White, Black or Gold piece is sealed with a clear satin finish to protect against dust and staining, and the base is covered in natural cork to protect both your decor and surfaces from scratching.   (Cork base not shown in some photos)

Concrete is a wonderful complement to your home, providing both stability and style.  It is also naturally variable, with minor colour variation and small bubbles adding to the individual character of every piece.  

We will always do our best to send your order out within 2-3 working days.  Occasionally we may need to make your products to order, so if you need an something in a particularly tight timeline, feel free to drop us an email or give us a call on 06 876 8852 and we'll do our best to help. 

 

Delivery Costs and Timelines

New Zealand:

$7 within urban areas, $9 to rural areas.   (2-3 working days after dispatch) Free delivery on orders over $100.

We currently send via Courierpost. 

Australia & Rest of World:

 Sadly, due to rising costs of international delivery and extended delivery delays, as of 3 November 2020 we have removed our international shipping option. 

 

We hope to resume international deliveries when the situation improves, but for now we believe this is our only option to avoid disappointment to customers.   

 

International Orders and Bee Products

Different countries have different rules around importation of natural products, and it's common for beeswax not to be allowed in order to protect the health of their local bees.  We get it.  After all, Kev and I (Dee) are beekeepers, first and foremost.

HOWEVER, we have very tight biosecurity and good bee health here in New Zealand, and as many of our products are a blend of beeswax, tree resin and other oils, there is no risk they will ever end up being used directly in a beehive, as a block of pure beeswax might.   

Therefore we've had no problem with border restrictions, and as at the date of writing this, our products have been sent without problem to Australia, the US, Canada, the UK, and a dozen other countries . 

Some countries may have various border or import charges - please note that you will be responsible for any such charges. 

 

Route Shipping Insurance

At checkout you'll see the option to purchase Route shipping insurance on your order.   

It's usually a very small cost, and Route is underwritten by Lloyds of London, so you can trust them to pay for a replacement for your order if it is lost for any reason. 

We don't think this insurance is really necessary in New Zealand, so feel free to untick if you like, but we highly recommend it for international orders, as these travel via untracked airmail  (tracked is about four times the price!). 

 

What about packaging?  Do you use plastic?

We're committed to eliminating plastic wherever we can - the clear bags our kits are packaged in are NOT plastic.  They are genuine cellophane, made from vegetable cellulose and are fully biodegradable and home compostable. 

And we're very happy to announce that the black courier bags we use are also NOT plastic!  They are made from plants (mostly corn I believe), and are fully biodegradable, and home compostable.  And, a little oddly, they smell like fresh toast, or maybe popcorn!

It's not just plastic we're about reducing though - You'll see on our naked DIY blocks you have the option to buy without packaging, and on every one of our ready-made wrap pages we encourage customers to let us know if they don't need individual packaging on the wraps.
