Lovely, I have never seen anything like this!

Don't unplug your hub. said...

Beautiful. Which seems an odd thing to say about a sink.

How lovely! I like how the sequence brought me to the drain.

I know nothing about ceramics, but how do you paint a sink and not have the colors wash off? Maybe it's a pedestrian point of view, but I'd rather see what's clean and what's not.

An intriguing detail, brattcat. Not what I would pick, but then again, no one is paying admission to walk through my house and check out my sink.

Looks real nice... wouldn't feel like using though, it's too pretty.

Great, an original and elegant way of washing your hands!

Ah, to rinse your hands in such a sink - you'd have to smile.

Tres original Brattcat and so pretty. Welcome back, sorry it's taken me so long to catch up as you might have guessed I've been having a few very annoying computer problems, even still it's not 100% (well actually is it ever!!) Love your spring image from yesterday, it is indeed very lush! I awoke this morning to 1.3C, very unusual for this time of year, but it does warm up through the day! Soon you guys will be showing all the blue skies and it will be brrrrrrr! here in Perth.

This artwork creates an optical illusion regarding its appearance. If it gets a bit dirty, the person won’t notice it because of the design. This will create a refreshing, and energetic mood for the user. Using it is sure to be enjoyable, especially for young ones. Great work!

Wow… Seeing this makes me want to redesign my bathroom sink. It must be wonderful if I’m gonna paint the whole marble part. However, I think any beautiful home component will be wasted if it’s not maintained. So it’s best to check the sink’s pipes and toughen ‘em up to prevent leaks and to avoid any major problem.

It looks like an ancient bowl. No kidding! Anyway, it’s a unique piece of sink! However, I agree with Darryl about the dirt that will possibly clog the sink. You might as well place a strainer on the sinkhole to prevent any debris from falling right into the pipes.

That is probably the most magical sink I’ve ever seen. It’s just so beautiful! It would be a real shame to soil it with dirty hands. Anyway, I really like the design and the colors just boosts the color of the entire kitchen.

How could you not make a great first impression out of that, tell me? It’s beautiful, honestly, but I don’t think I could ever wash my dirty hands there. Too bad. :D If there is such thing called as vanity mirror, I think this would be a vanity sink. I’m already including this in my list for my next bathroom or kitchen remodel.
