Marble

PROCESS

 

Earth Stone Basins are carved from a single slab of natural marble stone.

 

Exclusive stone pieces are first pre selected in various mines & quarries.  Only the finest marble and best quality stone is chosen.

 

The individual character of each stone piece shines through on all Earth Stone Basins and reflects the unique character of the block from which is it carved.

 

Marble is sourced from all over the world including Greece, Italy, Spain, China & Turkey and individually hand chosen to ensure only the finest marble is used.

 

Once the Marble is chosen, the slabs are then taken to the manufacturing plant for processing.

 

The Master Craftsman Stonemason spends countless hours by hand chipping away and carving with various small hammers and chisels to create each vision of inspiration.

 

Much of the carving is done by hand with calculated blows from various shaped hammers, flat pointed chisels and small diamond saws.

 

Using the natural personality of each Marble block - the Craftsman works with the stones natural crystalline structure and with the veining to design beautiful colouration which match the spirit of the stone.

 

Quality time is spent in this manufacturing process.....

 

The skilled workmanship that goes into these wonderful creations is awe inspiring.

 

The Basins are then polished to a fine shine and remain endlessly beautiful in form and appearance.

 

The Basins are completely waterproof and sealed - so are not porous - the sealing brings out the natural veins and glow of the Marble.

 

Each Basin has its own unique character and style therefore no two basins are the same.

 

If two or more basins are required for matching purposes on one vanity, it is beast to order all the bowls at the same time so the Marble batch will be taken from the same part of the quarry.

PROCESS

 

Earth Stone Basins are manufactured from carefully constructed 'Tempered Glass' and are completely waterproof.

 

Ordinary Glass breaks at approx. 6000 pounds per square inch while our Tempered Glass can withstand much more and is 4-5 times stronger than normal glass.

 

Tempered Glass is strong and safe and is usually used in oven door applications and also cookware and furniture.

 

We mix our glass at a unique high ratio of 63% Silica Sand, 22% Soda and 15% Limestone and heat to 1200 degrees celsius.

 

This quality mix ensures that only the finest 'Tempered Glass' is created.

 

A float process is used to make a single sheet which is then moulded around the template whilst reducing the heat from 1200 degrees to approx. 600 degrees celsius.

 

The creation of the mould is skillful and the craftsmen are very experienced.

 

Once moulded, the glass is allowed to cool completely and a drainage waste hole is then created.

 

After again re-heating the Basin in a kiln to at least 650 degrees celsius, it is subjected to blasts of cool air from fixed and rotating nozzles to cool the glass down to a temperature of 200-300 degrees celsius.

 

The Basin is then carefully examined to see the effects of the rapid stress cooling on the glass.

 

By cooling the glass over the area, an inital compression is created on the surface of the Basin.

 

This initial compression stress process repeated over and over again enables the glass to hold superior strength.

 

From decades of experience, our craftsmen know the exact colouring mix, for this reason Earth Stone Basin can create many glass basins alike or as one off individual made to order pieces.

 

All Basins are individually hand crafted with internal colouring and/or hand painted.

 

Spending quality time in the manufacutring process ensures all Earth Stone Basins are created perfectly symmetrical.

 

The final process is a delicate fine shine polish which completes the Basins beautiful form and appearance.

 

All Basins come individually packaged to ensure its safe arrival with no breakage during transportation.
