SLIP CASTING

The process begins with a mixture of locally sourced clay and water being hand poured into porous moulds ? this is known as slip casting.

HAND-FINISHING

When the newly formed sinks are dry enough, our master craftsmen expertly hand-finish these artisan products through a process of sponging and ?fettling? to create a smooth surface. It?s at this stage that the craftsman proudly imprints his name on the base of his creation.

TWICE GLAZED

Only after leaving a sink to gradually dry out for a period of over 40 hours, is it deemed ready to be prepared with a first coat of glaze. It is then glazed for a second time to improve the feel and durability of the product.

FIRING

Each sink is then carefully fired in specially designed kilns at temperatures of over 1200 degrees Celsius to complete this rigorous process.

WHEN SHAWS OF DARWEN WAS FOUNDED IN THE CLOSING YEARS OF THE 19TH CENTURY, WE HAD A VISION ? TO MAKE THE FINEST HANDCRAFTED FIRECLAY SINKS IN THE WHOLE OF ENGLAND.

Today, some 120 years on, that vision has been more than realised; Shaws now enjoys, not only a national, but a worldwide reputation for the beauty, quality, craftsmanship and sheer practicality of our unique artisan products.

We?re immensely proud of our heritage, and the fact that our sinks are still handcrafted at our premises in the same quiet corner of North West England as they were when we first started out on Valentine?s Day 1897. We?re also extremely proud that the techniques lovingly used by our time-served craftsmen haven?t changed in all those years.

So much so, every handmade Shaws sink carries an impression on its base of the name of the master craftsman who created it. This, along with our Certificate of Authenticity, is your assurance that your investment has been handcrafted for life.

Sizes shown are nominal as a tolerance of +/- 3% must be allowed for shrinkage and/or expansion of finished production item. Please do not prepare cabinetry or benchtops without having the actual sink to use as a template as every sink is slightly different & this adds to the individualistic beauty of the Shaw?s handcrafted kitchen sink.
