700 years. Linkasink’s cloisonné sinks are authentically hand crafted at a factory
in China that has been creating cloisonné objects since the 14th Century. Raw copper bowls serve as the structural base for the sink. Copper ribbons are bent to form the design patterns. These cloisonné pieces are attached to the copper sink. The areas formed by the cloisonné wire designs are filled with powdered glass. The sink is fired in a kiln to melt the glass. For multi-colored sinks, each color is filled and fired separately. Each sink is individually polished by machine and by hand to create the smooth finish.
