I remember Gerry (Rust) once spoke about the 'splash test'... I mean a good face wash or even a hand wash in these free standing basins would have water over the edge! They are just too small! They are pretty though... the pink & green combo; the patterned ceramic bowl...

Lovasi International

Hello Deborah, to answer your question about hard water. I am the owner of Lovasi International and we sell handmade, handpainted ceramic basins. Our basin was featured in this article, it was the basin with the vintage blue pattern. Firstly since our basins are ceramic and have a Matt glaze on them, they tend not to stain from hard water. Which has been a great selling feature for people who want a statement piece. We sell our basins to a London market, where lime scale is heavy and we have had no issues from our customers. Secondly our basins are very easy to clean, as long as you don't use an abrasive cleaner, they will clean with any products. Plus it is as simple as a wipe.

To follow up on the second comment from cassandrascott24 - We have different sizes available for different uses. For example our size large is 40cm in diameter and is the perfect size for everyday use without leaving splashes. It is also important to have proper placement of your tap, to reduce splashing. If a tap has been place incorrectly, this will also cause unnecessary water splashing. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the information Lovasi International. I live in France and have already chosen the fittings for my completely refurbished bathrooms, much helped by the fact that my partner is both a plumber and master carpenter!
