Good Evening,

I just wanted to thank you for posting our sink! I truly appreciate it!

Each Erosion Sink takes more than 40 hours of hand-crafting to create just the sink mold itself. Most of that time is spent rounding and smoothing the layer transitions so there are no sharp corners for dirt and grime to accumulate. We then seal each piece with an industry leading water based sealer that was initially developed for the aeronautical industry but was found to work extremely well on concrete. Needless to say, this sealer far outperforms all other concrete sealers on the market.

The combination of the smooth transitions and nearly stain-proof sealer make this sink a breeze to clean. Simply mist the sink with cleaner and wipe with a towel. The owner of the sink pictured has used it on a daily basis for more than a year now with no upkeep issues.

Should anyone have any questions please feel free to email me directly at brandon@goredesignco.com
