This is a variation of one of our creation series...and you truly wouldn't believe the Genesis of it. ...Really. If you like the concept of looking deep into the outer limits of space, but you also want something that "pops" with color and visuals, this one really pops. And if you just have to know how the design came about we will quietly whisper it to you.
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.
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
Okay, folks, for those astute observers, this one looks a whole lot like blues in the night. Yup! it originated as a custom version of that very fountain. And, quite frankly, we had a lot of trepidation about making a blues in the night...without any blue whatsoever. When it was said and done, however, my wife, Pamela and son Cameron came over and said they really liked it and that it "popped". (the ultimate compliment around here.) if it "pops" for you let us know
