This week we learned of a new line of ceramic sinks from kitchen design company Devol. The sinks are designed by Devol ceramicist Ed, a 3-D design graduate from Loughborough University, with Devol director Paul O’Leary. It’s the company’s first line of ceramic sinks and took 13 attempts for a handmade sink to function like any sink. Here’s a closer look at the new offering.

Above: Some of the sinks are slip cast while others are slab built. The sinks shown here are slip cast before being glazed.
