I read other buyers' reviews, but still angonized over whether to buy this sink. I've searched and searched and looked at hundreds of vessel sinks, but finally ordered the koi vessel sink. I am so pleased with the artistry as well as the subtle colors. It is beautifully crafted and has perfect dimensions. The sink is translucent and interesting as the light changes and you view the fish and flowers from different angles. The sink has not yet been installed, so I can't comment on installation and assembly. I am more then satisfied with its appearance, the quality of workmanship and the price.
