How cool is that? Dionyses as a child peeing in the pool. Content is everything. The coolest ppol is in the room. Back off. Ok, yes, the pineapples on the pier caps too… yes Oh holy crap what a cool project! Still floored that our crossing resulted in this. T^The doctor is […]
One of my first projects after moving to Ohio. I had no idea who this guy was. There are fifteen pieces in this fountain. It was laid out with 1/4 joints, fifteen pieces. Fifteen pieces to make a circle? But tes, no problem. Entirely hand made. 1/4″ joints. Fifteen piece circular fountain coping. You’ve seen […]
This was one of my first public projects. It is still in operation, almost twenty years later. the water flows out of the book and across the split boulder, and disappears. The boulder is suspended on a stainless steel grate that holds the gravel at grade level. This Thurber Dog facing down a butterfly is […]
This sheet fountain (look closely) flows uninterrupted over the six feet of it’s lier. The level of the lier has to be perfect for this to work. Here the water flows into a trough under the fountain and is recycled. When the wind blows,the water sheet is blown as well. This kind of fountain, blended […]
This fountain shell is an actual trough from medieval France. We just figured out the cool way to get water into it. A mighty cool fountain emitter for a centuries old marble trough. Cool garden I wonder how it looks now?
This kind of sheet fountain is very tricky to get right- but gorgeous. Best in a situation like this, isolated from the wind. The brick wall is not a good choice this close to water. Beautiful, but I caution against it.
I haven’t been by this fountain in several years- I hope all is well with it. One of my first public pieces. SAn unbroken sheet is a major challenge, especially one this big. Wind is everything.
This cherub was one of Matthew Palmer’s first figurative works. Matthew has since gone on to many public works. Getting the dolphins to properly spit into the basin was a labor of love. Tricky. Water spilled from this amphora as we as from everywhere else. Fancy fountain. When babes deliver the wine… oh no, oh […]
Another of my first stone carvings. This was done for Ameriflora in the early ’90′s. Boy, we’ve all come a long way since then. A temporary summer installation, and I share it here as an example of what not to do.
The client had purchased the terra cotta cartouche separately and we designed the fountain around it. I never returned to get finished photos. I’ll have to swing by and see how it looks.
This is one of my earliest fountains. Here a series of holes was drilled and we blew the marble up with blasting caps. I pinned the pieces back together, and did the cast stainless symbol you see here. The pump sprayed in the middle and water came out the cracks. We also had lights under […]
