Hop Sink
« on: November 22, 2010, 11:50:27 AM »
I mentioned in another thread that not only is my wife highly supportive of my brewing, when we decided to remodel our bathroom she had a custom fused glass sink made, with glass representaions of hop leaves and cones imbedded in it.  Here are some pics of it (not installed yet)....

Beautiful! Nice artistic craftsmanship. Expensive?

I think it was expensive...to tell you the truth, I didn't ask.  My wife makes good $$, our bathroom is a hole, and it's what she wanted....she deserves it!

That's awsome!

I showed this to my wife, and her comment was 'it's beautiful!'

That is unique!  You have many fine art glass people up in the Pacific North West, glad to see that they could make your vision.

Nice sink, great idea.
