Traditional craftsmanship for over 100 years.

Shaws have been manufacturing fireclay sinks for over 100 years, using time honored traditional methods and materials. Each sink crafted today is an individual product, bearing testament to the craftsmen who produce them.

Shaws sinks demonstrate the natural characteristics of fireclay ceramics and are created by a 'slip casting' process at the factory in the Lancashire town of Darwen. A mixture of clay and water is poured by hand into a porous mould. When the newly formed sinks are dry enough, craftsmen remove them from their moulds before hand finishing the sinks through a process of sponging and 'fettling' to create a smooth finish.

Following a gradual drying period of up to 40 hours, the sinks are then prepared with a ground coat before being glazed. Firing in specially designed kilns at temperatures of up to 1200 degrees centigrade completes this rigorous process.

Whilst modern technology has improved manufacturing methods over the years, the principles of this handcrafted product remain the same. Each sink is proudly stamped with the impression of its maker and bears its own distinctive badge.
