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.
We live on ten acres of deep woods, and in the fall We're knee-deep in...leaves! it's heavy on the maple and Oaks around here and you wouldn't believe how many variations there are just on Oaks and maple each one is a tiny work of art unto itself. This is the second in what will be a series of nature-oriented paintings. It is rich in iridescent patinas and it is highly detailed. I hope you enjoy it
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.
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
