Glass tile mosaic for a custom fountain

 

For a collector’s fabulous custom home, a fountain. What a pleasure this was to make, to say nothing of the place in which it now sits. 23′ wide x 30″ high. The mosaic will appear to change as the sun moves across the sky each day, and with each season, and weather, of course. At night, it takes on a completely different feel. It will be in direct sun only part of each day. It’s part of the entry to the home, and can be viewed from most of the main living areas. The owner was obsessive about getting the exact water sound, and he succeeded. I heard the sound before I saw the fountain. What a blast!
