We spec'd a faucet from the Tara series. We assume the one shown in the photo is not available anymore.

Concrete is unique in its ability to be cast into any shape and almost any color.

Since most shops use a GFRC mix design (glass fiber reinforced concrete) the material and weight are kept to a minimum.

If you like plastic you could probably get some kind of acrylic material thermoformed like this. Our industry often uses thermoformed plastics as molds for the concrete.
Slabs of quartz or granite can be glued together but they have seams and only provide flat planes.
A solid piece of stone could be carved into this shape but it would be hard to source, very expensive, incredibly heavy, and produce a lot of unnecessary waste.

Concrete is an amazing material worth learning about.

Custom sinks can vary a lot in price depending on the specifics of the design. A sink like this from JM lifestyles would be about 1400.00 for the custom mold plus the price of the vanity.if it was 6' x 2' the total would be around $3,000.00

Hi Errica,

I am part of a forum for concrete fabricators that started in the US and now has members all over the world.

Many on the forum run professional shops, but quite a few are more along the lines of enthusiasts. I couldn't find a professional capable of this level of work in Texas*. I'm not saying that one doesn'e exist. Not every shop in the country is a member, but most are. High performance cast concrete is a small industry where many of us know each other or at least know of each other. There is a world map showing members, and there are very few West of the Mississippi and East of the Rockies. I'm sure it's based largely on demand/interest and population density.
*If I'm missing someone in that region I mean no offense :-)

There are a growing number of shops that can produce high quality concrete, but it seems they are mostly near the East and West coasts.

Any of us with a professional shop can ship to you. We are based in the Seattle area. We shipped a piece to Key West, and it wasn't much more than it would have cost to ship to California.

I would love to cast a custom concrete sink for you. If you are interested or just have questions please feel free to contact me. You can also still search your local area for talent or check out other shops in the country.

Regards,

Vince

At the moment no one mass produces a stopper for a slot drain. I have worked over some design ideas over the years but so far the lack of demand has not justified pursuing it.

The basic concept is not rocket surgery. The biggest difference is you need a stopper to match the opening of the slot drain. Since most concrete fabricators do things a little differently, it would be a challenge to have a "one size fits all" solution.

A number of different designs can be fabricated with varying degrees of difficulty based on the final look desired. Even for something as small and as seemingly simple as this it takes time. So far in my experience, no one has wanted to spend the money on this option.

StoneMar

You are correct, a rubber stopper could be custom cast to fit the slot.


Feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

10. Realize that troughs aren't just for horses. This poured concrete sink forces you to put things away in the medicine cabinets keep things uncluttered.
Natalie Myers added this to Amazing Ways with Concrete Countertops
Unlike stone slabs, you can create any thickness you like without a huge cost difference. This counter is approximately 6" thick for a unique porportion to the vanity. Notice how the sink is one continuous element subtracted from the thicker pour? Very cool.
Ivon Street Studio added this to Green and Clean: Ecofriendly Bathroom Sinks
Cement-based sinks. Cast-in-place concrete sinks, each poured for a unique installation, provide ultimate flexibility to design the perfect sink for you and your bathroom. Green your concrete with recycled aggregates like glass, porcelain or coal fly ash (though skip the fly ash if coal isn't produced in your region, as the transportation energy negates any green cred).Alternatively, Lithistone's ceramic cement uses approximately 20 to 40 percent less energy than Portland Cement, thereby reducing the sinks' carbon footprint. The remainder of Lithistone's matrix is natural mineral binder, different grades of sand and stone, recycled material and organic mineral pigments.
