- Add a new
dimension to your garden or home with a commissioned fountain, designed
especially for your unique environment. . .
- Working directly
with the client or landscape designer, or both, I design and create copper
water fountains which echo the patterns of nature. Whether installed as
a lively focal point in a large pond or to create soothing ambience in a
quiet corner of the garden, my fountains are aurally as much as visually
adapted to their environment and each piece has its own voice.
considerations can include:
- • your
specific design requests
• my interpretation of your idea
• my own vision for the site
• a combination of the above
Existing Designs... Many of the fountain designs on this site can
be adapted to meet specific design challenges. Please contact me to discuss
your needs or interest.
Copper?... Just as our gardens are always changing, so does copper
as it naturally ages. When exposed to the elements, it will eventually begin
to take on a blue/green verdigris patina. This intensely beautiful patina,
for which copper is so prized, is integral to all of my fountains. In addition
to being a perfect complement to the organic style of my work, it provides
the copper with a protective coating and ensures minimal maintenance requirements.
Commissioning a Fountain... Typically, this process begins
with a consultation to determine the client’s particular design interests
and needs. If a site visit isn’t practical, this can be done by phone
and email after I have received landscape plans and/or photos of the site.
After the consultation I will provide a proposal which includes:
a drawing or composite image pertinent to size and location
• technical details
• timeline (up to12 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design
and my schedule at the time)
• shipping or delivery/installation details
