How is a fireclay farmhouse sink made?

Fireclay is a type of ceramic that is made when clay and glaze are fused together at extremely high temperatures (most brands bake their sinks at over 2000 degrees F). The manufacturers have their own proprietary process, however, this is typically how these sinks are made.

  • First, the clay is poured into molds based on the shape and size desired
  • It is then left to dry in a mildly heated room for up to 2 days.
  • Once the clay is dry, porcelain enamel is applied before putting the sink inside a kiln to bake!
  • The temperature is cranked up to over 2000 degrees F for almost 24 hours, and this is when the magic happens!
  • The high temperature fuses the enamel to the ceramic making the sink extremely non-porous, durable, and heavy-duty.

The fireclay farmhouse sink is born and it is hard and resistant to chips, cracks, stains, and rust. Fireclay sinks have a handcrafted quality to them and that's what makes them all the more special.
