This artful powder room is the perfect combination of form and function. The corner fixture fits the small space. “We could not fit a standard pedestal sink into this bath,” says Deborah Malone, president of JP Malone Construction in Scottsdale, Ariz. “We had to make everything count.”

The hand-crafted copper design continues this rustic theme and adds a unique touch to the bathroom. The house has rustic touches throughout, such as terra-cotta tiles and other copper accents. The sink was crafted from a single sheet of copper by Wild West Coppersmiths in Scottsdale. Malone sketched the design, and the artisan made a template in steel. Once she had approved the design, they made it in copper. The artisan also fabricated the matching light sconce and the backsplash that protects the wall. Bolts along the edges of the sink add a decorative touch.

Malone says that copper is a popular material in Arizona. “We are the copper state — and the material matches the desert. Stainless steel is too cold,” she says. The remodeler often works with the artisans at Wild West to create one-of-a-kind products for projects including range hoods, lighting, countertops, and sinks. Malone says using artisans helps her fulfill her clients' desire for unique and personal accents. “My clients want something you cannot get off the shelf.”
