We've sold our exclusive Mother of pearl sinks all over the world. Mother of pearl is a composite material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer. It is also what makes up the outer coating of this sink and is strong and resilient. Mother of pearl appears iridescent because the thickness of the aragonite platelets is close to the wavelength of visible light. These structures interfere constructively and destructively with different wavelengths of light at different viewing angles, creating structural colours.
These mother of pearls sinks are made up of individual tiles of mother of pearl adhered to a high-density glass bowl with super strength aerolite glue. This glue was originally designed for aircraft production and is water and heat resistant. The sinks are solidly sealed and coated so there is no risk of mould or dirt entering between the tiles.

My name is Lee Dashiell, and I created Unique Sinks in 2016 to offer handcrafted, unusual and beautiful sinks to Australians, where most sinks available from retail outlets are white and standard, lacking any character or unique quality. I now sell sinks all over the world from both this website and my UK website.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
So, we were travelling in Mexico and saw these beautiful hand-painted sinks in a quaint stall. As we were about to renovate our bathroom in Sydney, we thought it would be a great addition to the design. So...there we were with this cumbersome, fragile sink as hand luggage - which we dragged across our travels in the US, Europe and Asia.
WORTH IT! We got it home and were so please with it. And, we got to thinking - why aren't there more unusual sinks/basins available across Australia... and so Unique Sinks was born.
Over the years, I have sourced basins from all over the world. And not always with success. I have received sinks with very poor glazing, bad packaging or even broken. (Well, I turned those into a mosaic birdbath, didn't I?) But over time I have found suppliers with reliable, consistent quality who I can depend on.
I hope you love the variety available here which can transform the smallest room in the house to one filled with personality and style!
