Rainbow Frost Fountain Art Glass Award
   
       
       
Rainbow Frost Fountain  Item 1398

Check Box for engraving


A gather of clear molten glass is pulled from the crucible and sculpted into the shape of a fountain.

The sculpture is fumed with a proprietary mix of rare metals and cobalt then returned to the furnace for
irridizing which produces a sparkling blue rainbow of colors.

The process is repeated and a hollow air space is added simulating a splash.

The entire exterior of the design receives a frost finish encapsulating the fountains for viewing through a window which is cut and high polished.

In ancient Rome, horses and domestic animals were able to drink the water caught in basins constructed at the base of fountains.

This is why many surviving fountains have catch basins.

Over time fountains began to include diversions which flowed into a separate series of basins (lavoir) which were used for the washing and rinsing of clothes.
