Ceramic sinks have been a beloved mainstay of kitchens for centuries. There’s no substitute to the look and feel of genuine fireclay. HOUZER fireclay sinks are created through a process that is both old and new.
We start with a proprietary blend of clay slip that is shaped using the most advanced injection molding techniques on the market today. After being hand-brushed and sponged, the raw sinks are cured for up to 48 hours. Then they are then sprayed with glazing materials and fired for over 20 hours in the kiln at 2200° F. Being fired at such a high temperature causes the clay material to fuse together on itself and with the glaze, creating the glossy, cool-to-the-touch finish that defines fine fireclay.
Our modern-traditional process results in sinks that are chip, crack, and scratch resistant—ideal for high-traffic kitchens. Fireclay sinks will last a long time if properly maintained—some of the oldest sinks in use today are of this variety. Our sinks also have the soul-satisfying benefit of being made from all natural materials that are completely lead-free, making them eco-friendly.
HOUZER fireclay is used in Platus, a line of modern apron-front sinks available in biscuit and white. All are crafted with the same quality and durability that are a signature of HOUZER sinks and all are backed by a lifetime warranty.
Make a HOUZER fireclay sink the heart of your soul kitchen.
