This fountain was designed to have the
feel of mid 1940's to mid 1950s interior furniture design.
The fountain consists of a honey
maple-veneered rectangular platform supported by crossed ribs of 1-1/2" thick
Icelandic birch ply edged with thin strips of cerulean blue acrylic. The
exterior of the fountain is finished with five coats of hand-applied poly
finish. The water reservoir is waterproof double coated in marine resin.
Five jets, spaced along the long axis of
the water platform are program controlled using our patented electronic
controller. The water surface is flush with the top of the platform giving the
impression that the water is floating on the wood surface. The sequence of
jet-flows creates a dynamic pattern of ripples and waves which visually merge
with the surrounding platform yielding an abstract "infinity" effect (click on
see video below to see one example of possible effects).
