Gober has made many sculptures of domestic objects, such as sinks, drains, urinals, cots, playpens and doors. They closely resemble the manufactured originals but are in fact hand-made by the artist. In the mid-1980s he made whole sink units, and later isolated the drain elements, embedding them into unexpected locations, such as tables and walls. His drains have a mundane, domestic presence yet are potentially suggestive, evoking the intimate bodily process of personal hygiene.
