This kitchen copper sink has a standard 3.75" diameter hole in a single bowl. The rim is 2" all the way around it, leaving a bowl 22" x 15" x 9". This hammered kitchen copper sink is a beautiful piece of art.
From a copper sheet the wise artisan hands transform it into this unique piece. The copper sheet is 14 gauge (0.064" thickness). The hammer footprint is very visible, giving it its own character. The reddish/oxidized texture is characteristic of natural copper when it is cooled down from red-hot temperature using cold water, that specific characteristic is what makes it so beautiful.
The techniques used by Santa Clara del Cobre craftsmen are the same ones used for several centuries, where no sophisticated tools are used, just the furnace to heat the copper and a hammer to give it the shape. The finish is in a dark brownish, weathered color. Along your home decoration, this piece it will add a unique touch to your kitchen making it a very special point of attraction.
The patina can be damaged faster if any abrasive substances stay for long periods of time on the sink surface, because of this, rinsing it after usage is recommended; besides that, no more maintenance is required.
