My tabletop water fountains are each unique works of art. Each one takes between 15 and 20 hours to build. Despite my best efforts to photograph my water art, pictures just can't capture them. In just a few weeks, you will be able to see and hear them via a 15-30 second movie file.

The base or bowl is a bisque-ware (fired once) clay bowl that I cover with a cement veneer. The colors of the bowls are assorted shades of gray, green, light blue, brown, tan and brick. Often complementary colors are used to add color marbling. The rock structures are built from rocks collected during driving trips from California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and Oregon. I find I get the best results by just “playing” with the rocks and seeing how they want to fit together. Grasses, pinecones, crystals, plants, twigs and bark are often added. You’ll see there is often a place to add a candle or two as well.

The sizes of the fountains range from 12 to 16 inches in diameter and 10 to 18 inches in height. These sizes make them perfect for the home or office. A 12 inch ruler has been placed in one photograph of each fountain to give a measurement perspective.

Additionally, most fountains are built to be played with. By changing the rock that control the water flow, the look and sound of the fountain can be changed. Water sounds can often range from loud to gentle and soothing. Only the main rock structure is cemented together. So you are free to change the look of the fountain by adding or subtracting rocks. Feel free to add a rock picked up during a picnic in the park or a hike in the mountains.

The fountains are arranged into two categories: fountains available for sale and those that have already sold. Have a look at all the different styles.

Currently, I sell my water art through art galleries or word of mouth. Prices range from $180 to $450. If you are interested in viewing the fountains, appointments can be made at my home in the San Fernando Valley (a suburb of Los Angeles, California). Special orders are welcome; but please keep in mind no two fountains are the same and only colors and rock structure themes can be replicated.
