THE PORCELAIN SINK STORY
The Linkasink line of porcelain sinks are hand thrown and then carved by artisans in China who create unbelievably detailed pieces of art. The sinks are available in a number of shapes, patterns and finishes. The Porcelain Series features carved patterns including fish, lotus, leaf, and stripe motifs. These sinks are available in a variety of glazes including white, celadon, and the popular bronze glaze that simulates golden bronze. Unlike bronze sinks that are difficult to maintain, these porcelain sinks with a bronze glaze are easy to maintain using a gentle cleaner.
Unlike many porcelain sinks that are mass produced, each Linkasink porcelain sink is hand thrown and formed into a bowl shape. Artisans then carve the porcelain design into each sink. Although each sink is hand carved, there is a high degree of accuracy and continuity among the pieces. However, each artist will usually leave their own distinctive mark on the piece in the form of a small symbol. For the Ming Dynasty sink and others with a pattern, artists paint the designs by hand on each sink.
