Concrete Sinks with Inlaid Glass Add Artistic Flair to Community Arts CenterProject submitted by Zack Mehaffie, M Concrete Studios, Dayton, Ohio
This bi-level concrete sink with handmade glass embeds coordinates beautifully with the tile mosaic walls in the bathroom of the Fitton Center for Creative Arts.
The pieces of colored glass were inlayed in a swirl pattern to accentuate the bowl-shaped vessel sinks.
White cement was used for both sinks to create a pristine canvas for the brightly colored glass.
The Fitton Center for Creative Arts in Hamilton, Ohio, is a nonprofit community arts center offering a variety of art classes, exhibitions, and entertainment programs. The center has made it a priority to provide the public with unique art experiences, and has even incorporated one-of-a-kind art into its own interior décor. An example is this bi-level concrete sink with colorful glass embeds, custom made by M Concrete Studios to match the center’s bathroom design scheme.
“The biggest advantage our product has that other materials don’t is that it’s so customizable,” says Zack Mehaffe, who operates M Concrete Studios along with his brothers Ryan and Noah.
“The center had created a colorful, ornate, handmade tile mosaic for the walls of the bathroom and wanted something that would coordinate well with it. We took handmade glass droplets and used them as inlays in a swirl pattern to create the desired look.”
To make the colored glass stand out, M Concrete Studios used white cement for both countertops. The main top section is 8 by 2 feet and accented by two bowl-shaped vessel sinks. The lower section is 3 by 2 feet with an integral concrete sink. Both pieces were formed and poured in the shop and delivered to the site on specially made carts.
Mehaffe says that custom concrete work such as this is their company’s hallmark. “We have been in business for nearly 10 years and do work all over Ohio and the Midwest. What sets our product apart from others in the industry is how much we emphasize the ‘design your own finish’ aspect. We are coming up with new finish techniques almost daily, and we are very experimental when it comes to combining colors, inlays, etc., to create something 100% unique.”
