Beautiful, unique and colourful!
Our aim is to create beautiful and durable basins that are locally made by hand in New Zealand. Concrete is a versatile and strong material that gives it the ability to be cast in any shape and set as hard as stone. We create an old school style of concrete that results in the organic and textured aesthetic that is known for.
Wabi Sabi is a Japanese philosophy of beauty that accepts imperfection, impermanence and incompleteness. It is also described as rustic simplicity or understated elegance.
We embrace wabi sabi with our design, materials and manufacturing process and allow concrete to be what it is – an imperfect, textured and changing material. What might be seen as a slight flaw in a ceramic basin is what makes our concrete basins so unique, and they will continue to develop their own beautiful patina over time.
The use of safe, non-toxic and sustainable materials is essential in creating a healthy home. All the materials and sealants we use are completely safe and there are no harmful chemicals, odours or off-gasing. The pigments we use are natural earth pigments sourced from France and our sealant is a water-based and completely food safe.
