Glass Counter Slides into Sink

Glass vessel sinks will always have their place, but if you prefer sleekly modern over ornamented, how about a glass integral sink? This seamless structure features a smooth countertop that contours. For best price, go with the round integral. As integrals go the rounds are fairly easy to make -- so will be more competitively priced. But for drama and sophistication -- look for oblong, rectangular and square contours.

Marina1 According to Scott Dow, Director of Marketing & Development, Curvet USA, a division of Italy's Curvet Holding Group, the secret to achieving these flawless geometric shapes is in the annealing process -- which takes know-how and patience. An entire sheet of glass is heated, softened and cooled very slowly over a mold. Once complete, coloring is hand-applied.


Marina, with its deep oval bowl features a red opaque finish. Ingrid, with the more difficult rectangular sink, is in a semi-translucent blue.
