Linaksink’s bronze sinks are made from spun cast bronze with each sink being hand-cast one at a time. This technique gives more uniformity to the finished sinks. The sinks are made by craftsmen using an old-world Turkish method enabling them to construct intricate details and shapes, producing a sink that radiates beauty and warmth.
Craftsmen carve an intricate pattern into a two-piece wooden mold. The mold is soaked in water so the wood can withstand the molten bronze. Once poured into the mold, the bronze instantly solidifies and the sink is popped out of the mold. The craftsmen then hand chase the mold pattern using wood carving tools to bring the pattern back. The water soaking and bronze pouring process is repeated, and, surprisingly one wooden mold can cast almost 1,000 sinks before a new mold is carved.
The bronze sinks come in a variety of finishes including antique bronze, vintage brass, unlaquered brass, white bronze, and polished white bronze. Originally, Linaksink’s bronze sinks were available in two color types – antique bronze and white bronze. The antique bronze sinks are made from a standard bronze material resulting in a solid bronze sink in the expected bronze color. The white bronze sinks are made from white silica bronze which is also a solid bronze product but with the appearance of a satin nickel finish. The white bronze sinks are far more durable than a metal sink with a satin nickel finish because the white bronze color is present throughout the composition of the sink.
The use of white bronze was originally made popular by the decorative hardware industry to produce high-end residential door handles and other hardware that would stand up to heavy use and the outdoor elements. Linkasink is among the first companies to create sinks in white bronze.
Linkasink produces a unique bronze bowl sink that is unlike any other in the marketplace. Inspired by an antique Peruvian bowl, these vessel sinks are created to be both authentic and rustic in appearance.
Botanical, Wing, and Brocade
These vessel or drop-in sinks feature intricate patterns on the interior of the sink. The patterns are inspired by nature as well as historic designs.
Linkasink has taken inspiration from the Pantheon in Rome to create this unique bronze sink. The basin of the Pantheon Sink features a geometric pattern of coffers which is a remarkable replica of the domed ceiling of the Pantheon.

A variety of bronze sink styles are available as vessel as well as drop-in sinks. The styles include Wave, Semi-Recessed, Wok, Round Fluted, Oval Smooth, and Round Flat-Bottom Fluted styles.
