Art Fountains Explored
If you've never heard of an art fountain, take a few minutes to read this piece. You need to know about these wonderful creations. Yes, "art fountain" is a broad term, but for our purposes we are going to focus on several specific styles of artistic fountains that stretch beyond the typical indoor fountains you’re used to seeing in homes, offices, hotels, malls, etc. We hope you are moved and love these pieces just as much as we do.
This piece (right) – the Blues Eight Art Fountain – is an example of what happens with the marriage of an oil painting and a wall fountain. Think about it: this lovely painting, with water flowing over the top down to a reservoir at the bottom, creating a constant trickling to sooth your soul. I would just sit and stare at this for hours and hours at a time if it were in my home. If it were in the office? Let's just say "fountain time" would be my most choice break time.
An alternative to the oil painting art fountain is the copper sculpture fountain (left). These fountains have a natural look about them and are uber-durable. Yes, we said it - they look great and last a long time...a huge bonus to any environment (and wallet). In addition to pieces like this one, there are also some pretty incredible abstract copper fountains that are highlighted on our site. Being able to see the hammer work in copper fountains is so nice; these pieces are not manufactured, but rather made to order by the original artist, in most cases.
Going a step beyond the oil painting or the copper fountain, the combination of sculpture and oil painting come together in a remarkable way in pieces like this one: the Galactic Red Art Fountain (right). Pieces like this are also custom made, so each one has an individual flare that is yours and yours alone. Most artists are willing to customize pieces like this and the above pieces, to suite your personal preferences and business needs. Your hotel lobby have a blue theme? Done. Your home in need of a bold piece with lots of reds? Done. Like we said, customized to meet your needs.
Take a look around our site and enjoy exploring the bold and stylistic variety of art fountains, including, but not limited to, variations of each type discussed in this blog. We guarantee they will stimulate your whimsical and creative sides. Share them with a friend you care about. S/he will thank you.
