Way back when...in the 70s, we had an entire wall devoted to copper butterflies, all different sizes and colors. One of our good customers came in all bubbly and declared, "Butterflies are Free!!!". I wasn't in a particularly good mood and at the time and said, "Not in this gallery, they aren't." At which point she explained that the quote came from a Broadway play. ...At which point I told her they still weren't free. ...You had to have been there. Here's our newest Butterfly Fountain and guess what. It's not free! Pretty though. Very very pretty.
What we've done is taken panels of high-tech acrylic... they're bulletproof, almost literally, and we color, stain, paint, and patina them on the reverse side with metallic oxides, iridescent paints, and sophisticated stains. The bottom of these fountains is a hand-made copper reservoir that is hand-patinaed with heat. The backside of the acrylic panel is painted and then sealed. The water flows down the front and consequently never comes in contact with the painted image. The sound of the water is magnificent! It's really a visual show of the first degree. In all of our water fountains, a standard 110v outlet is required for the quiet, long-lasting, powerful, adjustable-flow water pump that is included. All of our water fountains are re-circulating and do not need an outside water source.
Back lighting is available on these water fountains....though the wall fountains look great without them. This is a randomly positioned string of high-tech lights that create the illusion of stars. Each light is literally the size of a grain of rice and they put out virtually no heat. These lights are super long life...5000 hours plus and they give the fountain an incredible depth. If you entertain at night...this one is dynamite with the backlighting!
