The Fountains have been creating art together for many years. Whether brainstorming, designing, cutting, shaping or welding, each individual of the family contributes at various levels to nearly every piece of art they produce.
Found objects, recycled or secondary steel and stainless steel are melded together with many other mediums, including granite, automotive paint and driftwood to craft distinctive sculptures. The focus of their designs ranges from fantasy and whimsy to nature and realism to modern and abstract.
Awareness is frequently at the center of inspiration for the artists. Motivated by ecological, social and political issues, they execute their ideals creatively and innovatively. Sometimes they take a much more light-hearted approach and create a piece just to elicit smiles.
Essentially, relationship of artists, ideas, materials and issues inspire the Fountain’s art and ultimately the community that embraces their works.
