After a Marzi sink has been ordered it typically takes 2 to 6 weeks for the sink to be ready to ship.
Standard white sinks take 2 to 3 weeks. Painted and carved take 3 to 6 weeks. As our sinks are all hand made the amount of time is not finite and can take longer in some instances.
Is there anyway to speed up the time it takes to make my sink?
Unfortunately not. Each Marzi sink is hand poured, cleaned, carved, and painted. To ensure the quality of our products and due to the very nature of clay we can not rush any of these steps.
Can I get a cutting template for the sink I ordered?
All of our sinks are hand made and the sizes can very slightly. Thus we encourage our clients to wait until they have the sink or sinks in their possession before cutting. We can send cutting templates for any of our SELF RIMMING sinks. We do not provide cutting templates for the UNDER MOUNT sinks as the sink will be needed for an exact cut.

I see drain pieces in your photos, do the sinks come with drain fittings?
Our sinks do not come with drain fitting, when purchasing a bathroom faucet you should get the drain fitting this way your faucet and drain piece will match. We put the fitting in the photo to give a finished look to the photo.
How Do I Care for My Sink?
Clean Basin after installation and before first use. Use a mild, non-abrasive soap and cloth. Mild abrasives such as “Soft Scrub” are not acceptable. Continued use of chemical or abrasive cleansers or abrasive pads will eventually remove the finish. Keep your sinks clean and dry to preserve their beauty.
Care Of Real Metallic And Opalescent Finishes
Real metal such as gold and platinum and opalescent finishes require special care. They offer a look that cannot be duplicated with other finishes. They are low-fired, soft metallic glazes which will wear even with normal use in moderate traffic areas. We therefore encourage other design options, and cannot guarantee the on these lavatories after they have been installed. To ensure long lasting beauty of your Marzi Metallic or Opalescent lavatory, keep it clean by following these precautions.
Use a mild liquid, non-ammoniated, pure soap (i.e. Liquid Ivory). Wipe with a soft cotton cloth to clean. Abrasives of any sort will damage the finish. Mild abrasives such as “Soft Scrub” are not acceptable. Tip: Dry your sink after every use to prevent hard water spotting.
