A diminutive table top
fountain custom designed as small as possible to showcase a very
special work of crystal art not available for web display. Not
quite big enough to be a full emerald island, more an Emerald
This entire copper fountain
is enclosed in a solid Walnut, mitered base accented with inset
copper on the bottom. The wood has been finished in a satin Polycrylic
finish for maximum water resilience.
The emerald stairs are
made of acrylic as is the iced platform which will hold the final
featured work of art.
The water flows up from
within the enclosed copper housing behind the stairs. It falls
out from between the two layered frosted platform edged in copper.
This allows the art to
stay dry as it is separated from the water flow. The water then
appears to be falling from underneath the art even though it
never touches it directly.
Gently flowing down the
luminescent emerald staircase, the water fills the copper reservoir
below. A low voltage bulb radiates starlight from behind the
stairs creating the perfect balance of light in the front to
showcase the water flow down the stairs.
The entire frosted ice
platform is softly flooded with light to illuminate the featured
crystal art to be held above.
One simple 110 volt cord
operates both light and pump. The entire sculpture is easily
removed from fittings with two screws for easy cleaning. Pump
flow is adjustable but preset for optimum acoustic and visual
fountains will not grow algae so no special cleaning is required.
All copper in this fountain
has been polished to a high shine. The colors will continue to
evolve and change over time as with all copper.
This image shows a sample
of how the platform illuminates from within the transparent piece
it holds, in this case a glass candle holder.
