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.
Inspired by Ovid's book metamorphosis, this wall fountain shows a woman merging in to the nest of a bird... or that is one interpretation of it. Some of our friends and clients have their own equally interesting or better takes on the piece. As with everything else in our studio, we can make this any size, shape, or variation on a theme.
Here we have an abstract interpretation of the moment...right after the big bang. Everything is exploding, spewing out shards of energy and molten mass, while at the center of the whole thing is a Giant power source, a mega sun. Well...the astronomers may take us to task, but it's a good-looking fountain and the energy is off-the-scale.
