Inspiration can come from anywhere and anything. Sometimes I see an interesting container and visualize it as a fountain. Then there are times I see something and thiink it would be interesting reinvented as a fountian. Hint: a regular shower.
This is the part where magic happens. With over 10 years experience, I have the basics and a lot of the mechanical figured out. Still working with water as a creative medium can be a challenge.
It's always exciting to see the finish piece. I often stand there and just stare. This begins the testing period where the fountain just runs, usually for a coupe weeks. While I enjoy some wine and make sure eveythings ok.
