      Just unpacked my glorious copper + zinc bowl; I could not be happier! Many thanks to the entire team for sharing your art with the world ... I'm honored to have one of your bowls in my home and will treasure it always.

      Quick update following my previous comment, following which the Saffar team contacted me with the required DHL reference. I was able to pay the £20 customs fee and the bowl was delivered today. Very pleased, it is beautiful and very high quality. Excellent customer service. Thank you.

      #Iain Bonehill - Hi, I have also had a partial message on answerphone from DHL also telling me I need to pay £20 import charges, however there is no reference or waybill to allow me to do so. Does anyone have any information on where you can get the DHL waybill number from? I also did update my address and email, yet I have not received any email with the DHL tracking number?

      Received my bowl today. Very happy with it.

      Hi. Any UK backers been told they have to pay 'importation charges' of £20? Don't mind paying it, I just want to confirm it isn't a scam as I can't find any information on the DHL website.

      Received mine. Very happy with my investment. This piece of art is going to be a center-piece in the living room.

      Dear Saffar,
      I have just received my bowl and it is AMAZING! 😍

    12. Saffar Creator on

      To everyone,

      sorry for the delay in response we are working as hard as possible to send out the bowls, and have almost one shipment left. However please note if you have not sent your phone number or address, we cannot send your pieces till these are received. Once your bowl is sent out you will receive DHL tracking to your registered email.

      All the best,

      I would love to get an update on where my bowl is since I’m in the USA and haven’t received any type of shipping notification. It seems like people here are starting to get their bowls.

      Can you give an update for those of us still waiting to receive our bowls? I had expected to receive mine by now.

      Just got my bowl. It is lovely.

    21. Saffar Creator on

      @A @David L Joyce as previously mentioned we are working through all the orders and are planning to send them all out by the end of December. However it's a priority that they arrive safely and to the correct individuals. We have already had a dhl mix up in the us. Its important to manage this correctly. Considering there are over 600 personalized custom orders it's not a small task. If anyone needs their pieces urgently, or is traveling please do send us a message and let us know. But keep in mind working through the shipments in order gets them to everyone faster.

      I mentioned in prior comment the bump on the bottom of my small bowl whech makes it impoosible for the bowl to sit flat. Also just noticed there is a small hole that appears to have been drilled into the bowl near the upper lip of the bowl.
      I am looking now for a way to grind the bump off of the bottom.
      Comment or advice please from Saffar.
      Did I just get a problem one?

      I just received my bowl today. It is absolutely beautiful. From a very satisfied backer.

      Received my bowl today. It is very nice and my family will enjoy it.
      But one possible problem. Was it supposed to sit flat on the table. mine has a large bump out on the bottom which makes the bowl lean to one side.

      Saffar - Sorry to be this person, but I need to follow-up on my first comment: Upon closer inspection, the bowl I received is nickle & brass (instead of copper & brass). Hope orders just got mixed up! Thanks again

      Hi Saffar, I received my bowl today. Firstly, the packaging is lovely and the bowl itself is so beautiful! Unfortunately, upon closer look there are two issues: 1) the bowl is powder coated (I requested none) and 2) the engraving is missing. Is it possible I accidentally received the wrong box? Anyone backer out there receive a small, poured, copper & brass, non-powder coated bowl with a numeric engraving? Hope this can be resolved! thank you

    35. Zelda on

      Hi Saffar,
      Got my bowl this morning - its GORGEOUS. Thank you so much. For those who are wondering I am in Australia - outside a major city, so they are starting to get out there!!!

    36. Saffar Collaborator on

      @matthew @jan thanks so much for asking. We started shipping the first 50 small dual bowls and will be shipping another 100 in the next week. It's important to make sure everything goes smoothly with Dhl so none of the packaging gets damaged in the process. They are bubble wrapping the boxes for extra protection and we are taking care to manage each size of package in the best way. Hence we are going according to size. So we plan to ship everything by the end of December. It may be a be a week later then Christmas but if anyone needs their pieces urgently will send it out as soon as possible. I hope that's ok.

      All the best,

    37. Matthew

      Hi Saffar, it's been a couple of months now since we have heard from you. Just wondering if we are still going to receive these in time for the holidays, as they would need to be shipped in the next week or so for that to happen now. Thanks :)

      Hi Saffar — I'm going to be moving countries soon, and honestly can't remember if addresses have already been collected for our beautiful bowls. But I definitely won't want it shipped to Portugal, which is what my order form says — will there be a new opportunity to provide our shipping address? Many thanks!

    42. Missing avatar


      Do you have any idea as to when these will be shipping?

    43. Saffar Creator on

      @James Stewart I'm sad I won't get to meet you both, but I hope I do get the opportunity in the future. Thats a shame. Look forward to getting them to you and hope they are worth the wait!

      Hey Saffar, hope you're all well & this wonderful idea of yours is progressing nicely.

      I haven't been in touch since filling in the survey and I'm really not worried as to when we receive the first bowl we've ordered as we appreciate quality takes time. That said, I am really excited about receiving it as I'm sure it will be beautiful and I hope you're ready for several future orders once my friends & family see it!

      I was hoping to tell you this in person at Design Junction next week as my wife & I are in North London & a short journey from Kings Cross, however we're out of the country at short notice for a few days, leaving on the 20th & returning on the 25th September which means we'll miss you by a day either side - terrible timing!

      Hope the event goes well & let us know when you're next showcasing your wares in London... we would love to meet you & your team and we're incredibly excited to receive our first bowl.

      All the best,
