Copper artisans abound throughout the world, however the artisans that have gained a reputation for making sinks has been primarily centered in India, Mexico and the US. Most of the shops making \"hand crafted\" copper sinks are small and the methods used to construct sinks goes back centuries. The term \"hand hammered\" has recently become synonymous with Mexican sinks. This term refers to the original ancient techniques that artisans have been using for centuries in this area. Copper sheets are literally hammered into shape and hand finished.
Once you’ve nailed down your configuration, next up will be deciding on the material you’d like for your kitchen sink. Stone sinks, especially granite, are extremely popular and the ultimate in long-lasting luxury. Hand carved by a stone artisan from a single block of granite, marble, limestone, travertine or onyx, a stone kitchen sink is a treasure you’ll cherish each time you use it.
You’ll need to remove the old sink from the countertop. Sinks are sealed in with silicone caulk, and there may be mounting clips underneath. The clips will probably be easily removed with a screwdriver. You may be able to peel the sink away from the caulk with gentle pressure, but a plastic scraper can speed that process along. If you’re using the same countertop, be extra careful not to damage it as you remove the sink.
