Unlike the bathroom lavatory, which might have been made of marble or china with fluted edges, the kitchen sink was likely to be prosaic in both shape and material, and to have become chipped and stained over the years. So when it came time to update the rest of the room, off it went to the local landfill.
Laura and John Lazet had already repaired decades' worth of remuddles to their mid-1800s farmhouse in Mason, Michigan, by the time they decided to tackle the kitchen. They knew they would keep the room's design aligned with the rest of the house. They were also fortunate enough to have found a sketch of the kitchen's early layout and have a few original, untouched pantry doors on which to model the cabinets.
In the 1920s, plumbing fixture catalogs also mentioned earthenware sinks. These sinks had a base of solid ceramic, rather than cast iron, and were often enameled white inside and glazed brown on the exterior. Like the cast iron sinks, they came with either flat or rolled rims. Always heavy, they were more likely to be found in commercial kitchens and laundries. A ceramic material used in some reproduction sinks today is fire clay, which has a high melting point and is more commonly used to make fire brick.
