Chelsea Fireclay Apron-Front Farmhouse & Undermount Sinks
HamatUSA Fireclay sinks are hand made in our Israeli Fireclay factory through a process that is both old and new.
We start with a proprietary blend of Fireclay slip that is shaped using the most advanced injection molding techniques on the market today. After being hand-brushed and sponged, the raw sinks are cured for up to 48 hours. Then they are sprayed with glazing materials and fired for over 20 hours in a kiln at 2200° F.
Being fired at such a high temperature causes the Fireclay material to fuse together with the glaze, creating the glossy, cool-to-the-touch finish that defines fine Fireclay. Our modern-traditional method results in sinks that are chip, crack, and scratch resistant-ideal for high-traffic kitchens. Fireclay sinks will last a lifetime, some of the oldest sinks in use today are of this variety.
Our Fireclay sinks also have the soul-satisfying benefit of being made from all-natural materials that are completely lead-free, making them eco-friendly. We use our Fireclay process in Chelsea, a line of modern apron-front farmhouse and undermount sinks available in classic white, matte black, matte grey and biscuit. All are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and crafted with the same quality and durability that is a signature of HamatUSA Sinks.

Hand-Hammered Copper & Pewter Sinks
There’s something elegant and pure, yet slightly rustic about hand worked copper.
HamatUSA copper sinks are formed from heavy 16-gauge copper sheet. Which lends itself well to design variations like hammering and a variety of artistic flourishes like those you’ll find in our designs. Copper’s living finish will also develop a patina over time meaning your sink will be as individual as you are.
In addition to the aesthetics of this material, copper boasts unique performance features. Naturally corrosion and rust resistant. Copper sinks can last for generations. Copper also has natural antimicrobial properties. Unlike other sink materials, copper doesn’t support harmful bacteria making it an important germ-fighting ally in kitchens and bathrooms.
Yet for all these benefits as well as their undeniable beauty, they are as low maintenance as can be and require no special care. Regular cleaning agents that are used to clean conventional surfaces work fine on copper sinks.
HamatUSA hand-hammered copper sinks are available in a variety of styles, some with whimsical motifs-and sizes to meet your space requirements in the lavatory, kitchen or bar-prep area. For performance and prestige, HamatUSA copper sinks are in a class of their own.
CeraSteel Porcelain Enameled Stainless Steel
HamatUSA has added an innovative twist to the universal appeal of porcelain enamel in the new CeraSteel Collection.
CeraSteel porcelain enamel sinks feature a light and resilient 16-gauge steel core that is a brilliant departure from the heavy cast iron foundation of other porcelain enamel sinks. The fact that our porcelain enamel sinks are only 65% of the weight of typical cast iron sinks enables designers to install porcelain enamel where they couldn’t before.
HamatUSA porcelain enamel sinks provide the glossy look and feel people know and love about porcelain enamel. It’s an enduring finish that’s been honored and appreciated throughout history. HamatUSA uses an enameling process that traces its inspiration back to 2000 BC and the first Greek craftsmen to fuse metal and glass.
We start with a genuine HamatUSA steel sink that is coated with high performance materials twice-first with a ground coat and second with a cover coat-and then fired at 1500° F after each application. The heat bonds the coatings with the metal to create a high-shine finish that’s resistant to impact, heat, stains, chips, scratches and even germs.
Our exclusive porcelain enamel comes in eight distinctive colors which are featured in our CeraSteel line of sinks.
