Derring® rectangular vessel bathroom sink
Derring™ Artist Editions® Bathroom Sinks
At Kohler, we understand that your sink isn’t merely a sink. It’s part of your story—one of the objects in the home you’ve chosen, in the life you’ve thoughtfully curated. Artist Editions® Derring™ sinks marry the artistry and craftsmanship of a small studio with the manufacturing know-how of a global company, creating beautifully handcrafted pieces, each designed to help tell the story of you.
Inspired by the distinct techniques and materials used by studio potters around the world, the glazes on Derring sinks are comprised of a unique combination of mineral elements resulting in fascinating surface effects. The elements used in the Bourbon Rutile glaze are rarely used in industrialized applications due to their sometimes unpredictable nature. By mastering the control of this glaze, the close-knit team of designers and artisans at the Kohler pottery brought artisan beauty to the bathroom. Timeless, beautiful and unique to Kohler, the combination of glaze and pattern brings a palette of neutral tones to life, adding dimension and depth to the bathroom.
From mixing raw materials to applying the glaze to firing each piece in the kiln, every step in the production process requires the utmost care and attention. Designed and produced in Kohler, the ceramic sink is cast, meticulously glazed and fired in the pottery resulting in diverse color transitions. The natural variations, characteristic of artisan glazes, make each sink a true individual, one-of-a-kind piece for you to add to your home. Each sink is thoroughly inspected to pass strict quality checks.
Rich and diverse, the Derring colors are the ideal complement for a variety of fixture colors and faucet finishes. Available in three shapes and sizes, these sinks accommodate a wide range of vanity and bathroom sizes. No matter your taste, traditional, eclectic or modern, Derring can express your personal style. Complement Derring with your own mix of colors and finishes to complete your look. Some of our favorites include pairing Bourbon Rutile with Biscuit, Almond, Black Black™ and Thunder™ Grey fixtures and faucets finished in Vibrant® Brushed Bronze or Oil-Rubbed-Bronze to complete the look. Translucent White goes well with White, Dune or Black Black fixtures and Vibrant Brushed Nickel or Vibrant Polished Nickel faucets.
The rutile glaze is layered over a distinctive texture that’s specially designed to combine tactile details with easy cleaning. Meeting Kohler performance requirements, Artist Editions products adhere to a single level of quality and surpass strict plumbing standards.
