Assuming you want to know the truth here, to achieve all the natural-looking patinas and textures on this fountain, we had to: pound it with a variety of different hammers, run back and forth over it with my kubota, twist it into weird contortions, then untwist it, shoot it repeatedly with special bullets, heat it, quench it, then hit it with strange chemicals. All that work just to get the "look" of something you'd find in a magical copper Mine. Then...when it's all finished we cover it with optical Lexan so that the coloration remains just like the day you bought it. Our little group here is split on whether it's the wall of a Canyon: up-close, or that same Canyon viewed from 40,000 feet. Either way, it's really pretty.
This is a bold and stunning abstract fountain. It reminds me of what one would see watching an alchemist converting lead to gold. It also looks like two planets at War with each other. That's the beauty of an abstract...interpretation. Let us know your interpretation of your piece. The other beautiful thing about these pieces is they are not stamped out. Each one is going to be somewhat different from the last. Would you rather have it the other way
If you've ever seen Fantasia and watched the amazing fairies doing their ballet to tchaikovsky's wondrous music, you get the idea of the feeling this fountain gives. No photograph can capture the magic that is going on here...the light, the color, the sound of the water... it's nothing short of magical
