Luxury 18" x 16" hand-molded SOLID fireclay farmhouse bathroom sink. Modern design with 1/2" radius interior corners, straight sidewalls, flat front apron, 1" material thickness, and glossy glaze.  All sides of the exterior are glazed, allowing for the 16" side to be used as the front (16" x 18" reversed orientation).  No drain is included as drains are typically included with bathroom faucets.

EXTERIOR: 17-7/8”W x 15-7/8”L x 7-7/8”H
INTERIOR: 15-7/8”W x 13-7/8”L x 7”D


Designed for double-sink and narrow-width vanities, Fossil Blu’s 18-inch fireclay bath sinks make the most of their size. The apron (sink-front) measurement of 17-7/8” x 7-7/8” still allows for the timeless rectangular architecture of the farmhouse sink, while staying within the given space limitations. And because our 18” sink boasts an interior front-to-back length of 13-7/8”, you can still expect a comfortable workspace that is likely much bigger than the sink you’re replacing. See specification sheet (below) for spec data and dimensional line art. As a natural product, minor variances in dimensions may occur. QA tolerances are held at +/- 2%.

SINK MATERIAL: Fine & ultra-fine fireclay
MANUFACTURING:
Hand-molded, low-fired

Fossil Blu Fireclay Sink Manufacturing

Fossil Blu fireclay bathroom farmhouse sinks feature authentic SOLID fine and ultra-fine fireclay. Authentic fireclay is a semi-rare natural white clay containing higher concentrations of fine-grained quartz (silica) than typical ceramic (kaolin) clays. When the silica-based glaze is applied (learn more about our glaze below) and then fired at extremely high temperatures, the silica of both the quartz and glaze fuse together, creating a single structure. This “single structure” is what separates fireclay from typical/inexpensive ceramic products, which are fired at lower temperatures, exhibit little fusing, and are thin and/or hollow structures. This is also why genuine fireclay sinks, such as Fossil Blu, are more expensive than inauthentic “fireclay” sinks found in the marketplace.

We source our fireclay base material from mines following reduced-input/output (more sustainable) mining practices in Italy, France and Israel. Once at our factory (in Mexico), the clay is mixed, then hand-formed using plaster molds and hand-scraping techniques. The sink is then low-fired (mild heat) for two days to dry before heading to the glazing room for finishing.

FINISH DETAILS: Ultra-thick, silica-based glaze
COLOR:
Appliance White
SHEEN: Glossy
APPLICATION: Hand applied, high-fired

Fossil Blu White Fireclay Finish

This sink features Fossil Blu’s legendary silica-based glaze, which is hand-applied by skilled artisans. Fired (kilned) at over 2200-degrees Fahrenheit, the glaze fuses with the fireclay substrate to create a permanent enamel. This high-gloss enamel has a very high hardness rating, which means it is non-porous and nearly indestructible. Standard household cleaners and mild abrasives (including bleach and Bar-Keeper’s Friend) are safe to use in moderation. Our white finish is similar to Appliance White (sometimes called Smoke White). RGB value averages are as follows: R: 235, G: 235, B: 237. The consistent RGB values of our finish means the white color has neither a warm nor cool tint. The high RGB values means the white is near perfect white (RGB each at 255).

17-7/8" x 7-7/8""
APRON THICKNESS: 1”

Fossil Blu White Fireclay Fluted Front Sink

Fossil Blu’s flat-front fireclay bathroom farmhouse sinks provide a clean and classic look to updated bathrooms. With no imprint, the rectangular shape is itself the design... a muted elegance, allowing for other bathroom elements to share the spotlight. Our flat-front fireclay sinks feature soft edges and a supple appearance to the front, characteristic of the natural fireclay material underneath. At 1” thickness, it presents as a contemporary sink and is therefore a neutral fit in a variety of bathroom themes. The left and right sides of the sink are fully finished, allowing for the sink to be reversed, with the 16" side used as the exposed apron, resulting in a 16" wide, 18" front-to-back sink.

INTERIOR CORNER RADIUS: 1/2””



With straight sidewalls, tight ½” radius corners, and its apron-front design - which extends past countertop - Fossil Blu bath farmhouse sinks provide for a sink space likely much larger than that which you are accustomed. If you have a busy bathroom, you’ll love the roominess it affords.

Fossil Blu fireclay sinks feature a very durable silica-based glaze. Silica is one of the hardest substances on earth, and is the base element of quartz, crystal, glass and more. Given this hardness, your sink will never stain, can handle boiling water being poured into it, will never pit or craze (spiderweb-like cracks in the finish), and aside from major events involving heavy weight, will never crack, chip, or break.

Of course, the best thing you could do to maintain your sink would be to dry it after every use, but we recognize this is unrealistic for busy households. Good news is that whatever daily soap and/or cleaner you normally use is the same cleaner you can keep right on using in your Fossil Blu sink. And should you ever see hard-water mineral buildups or other such deposits, semi-abrasive chemical cleaners such as Comet or Bar Keepers Friend are also fine to use in moderation. Nylon scouring pads such as Scotch-Brite pads and sponges are great options and will not hurt the finish.

We do not recommend steel wool or other heavy abrasives as, while they won’t hurt the sink, over time they will dull the sheen. Do not use semi-abrasive chemical cleaners on metal finishes, including the drain, grid, faucet or any other metal hardware as these finishes are not as durable as our silica glaze.

SOLID CONSTRUCTION

SOLID CONSTRUCTION

Cheap and inferior "fireclay" sinks are usually just hollow-core ceramic products. When you buy Fossil Blu, you're buying authenticity and long-term durability. Our SOLID hand-casted and hand-trimmed sinks offer unbeatable quality and differentiation.

SILICA-BASED GLAZE

SILICA-BASED GLAZE

A sink is only as good as it's surface, and we take no shortcuts here. Our proprietary silica-based glaze is the best in the industry; It's easy to clean, very durable, and highly resistant to scuffs/scratches. Best of all, it can be cleaned with the same cleaners you already use, up to and including mild abrasives, such as Comet and Bar-Keepers Friend.

REVERSIBLE ORIENTATION

REVERSIBLE ORIENTATION

Fossil Blu bathroom farmhouse sinks feature exterior glazing on all four sides. So should you be limited in left-to-right space, each of our sinks can be installed with its narrower side face-out. This gives you install flexibility, which is not usually available in the bathroom sinks category.
