This monolith fountain was donated for the Fall, 1996 fund drive. It was the Grand Prize in the drawing at the end of the week. To give you an idea of the size, the bowl is about 17" in diameter. The stone is black slate from the Eureka, CA area. It is supported by a bed of crushed salt-n-pepper granite. Made by Brian M. Godfrey
Retail value of this fountain at the time was something like $350. I can make you one now for more like $275. I can also make one in very beautiful green slate. Send me email if you are interested.
Sorry, no photo is available of the Fall 1997 fountain.
This fountain was made for the OPB Radio fund drive in winter of 1998. It was the Grand Prize for the entire week.
It is made of epoxied MDO
plywood, with black tile lining the pond. All exposed wood is Western Red Cedar.
The tower is
cedar with a bamboo water spout. Note that the area around the tower is intended to
be filled with potting soil and planted in lush, tropical foliage plants or ferns.
You could even put bonsai in there if you were so inclined and skilled.
I can/will make one more of these for $650. Due to more efficient use of materials I can make a slightly smaller one (probably about 17x26x7) for considerably less money: $450. Click here to see a photo of the slightly smaller one on display at the store. (The foliage was in need of trimming!) Send me email if you are interested.
This fountain was made for the OPB Television fund drive in winter of
1999. It was featured on the Jerry Baker gardening program during the pledge
breaks. It is made of epoxied MDO plywood, with black tile lining the pond and
Western Red Cedar trim. The monolith is made of a beautiful, heavy, rough-hewn green
slate. Note that the area around the back and sides can be filled with potting soil
and planted in lush, tropical foliage plants or ferns or bonsai.
I will make you one of these for $1000. Send me email if you are interested.
