A Symphony For Flying Pigs

Designed for Henry and Beth, from a distance this fountain appears to be sitting in the middle of a field spouting water in all directions at will. In actual fact the fountain is situated in a farm pond that measures about one hundred feet by one hundred feet. Nearly a year ago we were invited down to Gabriola Island to discuss the commissioning of a fountain for this pond. I was just a tad overwhelmed but incredibly excited about the project. This was my first endeavour into the world of large fountain insulations. A few wheels turning and several horns spilling water joined by some wonderful blown glass by Barbara Sanderson and an array of water jets and here it is.
