Stained Galaxy Fountains


I try to keep the descriptions down to a paragraph or two...and usually succeed. But the artwork of this fountain has had enough twists and turns that you deserve to know how it came about. When I was a little kid, I heard a song on the radio entitled, Baubles, Bangles, Bright Shiny Beads. At the time I had no idea what a bauble was, much less a bangle. But I knew they were special...magical, and it made the song special. I started this sculpture with that song in mind. But then, in the middle of it all, it got to the point where I'd look at it and just start smiling...not out of pride, but because it was sooo over the top. Clearly this fountain was...goin' for it. When it was finished, I wanted to give it a nice name of its own and it was Pamela that came up with Jewels of Barsoom...a mythical land...Mars from one of Edgar Rice Burroughs novels. It just fit perfectly. Later still, when I was putting the image up on our website, it began looking like paramecium, and one-celled animals, which was magical too and we toyed with the idea of calling it, The Beauty of Life...but only briefly. it is The Jewels of Barsoom. Hope you like it!
