Soothing Sounds

Fountains have a way of calming the spirit. Running water can mask the persistent hum of electronic equipment and humidify the air at the same time. Offices in particular can benefit from all of these positive qualities.

This model is made in the USA: the basin is a hand thrown stoneware bowl which houses the small pump. Vinyl tubing extends through layers of craggy slate and a small urn; water spills out over the rim and makes its trip down the stair step of stone. Approx. 12" diameter $140. A larger version is also available.
