Fireball

Fireball is a fountain that I have been working on since I finished Ocean Floor.  It is one in a series of sun oriented fountains and LED sculptures I am working on.  The fireball globes were made from patterns of the sun  They were then cut on the scroll saw, hammered into two half globes and soldered onto copper tubing.  To give the sense of spray, there are little pieces of copper, that keep the tubing from being directly attached to the upper globe.  The lower globe is then soldered on to the tube to catch what water falls prior to spilling over into the basin.  Flame patterns were cut out and soldered to another piece of copper tubing that slipped over the primary one.  These splay out to give a three dimensional appearance of fire.  The base is hammered copper with the five Fireballs soldered into it.  It is a soft sound that is between a rushing stream and a gentle trickle.

The next in the series will be Solar Flare.  I have finally, i believe figured out how to create a mist of light using LED and fiber optic cables.

 

Description: A clay pot measuring 16" in diameter and 15" tall, has three copper suns set in the side and sealed to support the base.  The base is copper hammered with a rolled hammered edge.  There are 5 balls that arise out of the base that are between 2.5 and 3 inches in diameter.  The flame patterns in copper are between 6" and 10" tall and 2 1/2" to 5" wide.  The pump is fed through the bottom of the pot and sealed with a rubber plug and silicone.

All sculptures are unique.  The picture above represents what yours may look like when it is completed especially for you.
