Greg from Naples FL emailed us to help him with his fountain. See, it didn't look exactly how his fountain looks like in this photo so we'll explain.
Greg had this beautiful 15" tall amethyst geode that had some slight cracks at the base and on the back side. He had the clear glass marbled ball that is suppose to spin inside the geode. But that's all he had. Greg asked us if we could get his fountain running. But first we needed him to ship us this beautiful piece of amethyst and the ball. This was part one.
Here's the geode with the crack in the back. Neither one of us knew how or when this happened, but it was before Greg even obtained it.
We epoxyed the crack to assure not only a safe trip back to Greg but also down the road when he goes to move it.
Greg found this beautiful silver toned concrete bowl and had the company ship it to us as ew didn't have a large enough bowl for his amethyst to go in and look right. In order for the amethyst to sit correctly in the bowl we had to make a slate tier for it to sit on. We used our deep lilac slate for the teier which complimented the amethyst perfectly.
Here's a photo of the bowl with the slate tier inside:
After we had all the parts we started working on drilling holes in the slate tier to acommodate the tubing for the pump and the light for the wire.
After testing a few different pumps to get the ball to spin just right ew were finished!
We accented the geode with some artifical ivy to give it an outdoorish look. He were kinda sad to see this beautiful fountain leave, but it was going back to its owner whoi was anxiously waiting.
We'd like to thank Greg for having the faith and trust in us to bring his fountain back to life!
