The things we make work well.

Outer appearance gets all the attention, but the stuff below the surface makes the parts a pleasure to live with.

I'm a small studio I'm not making thousands of these parts, so minor modifications to a few of them isn't a big deal.

I've learned to appreciate well crafted objects and strive to make my parts as nice as possible. I have great admiration for small companies and individual craftsmen that make superior products domestically and supply people with meaningful rewarding jobs. I believe in local manufacturing. The rational side argues that it simply a matter of embodied energy while the emotional side says the country lose a bit of its soul every time a factory closes and jobs are moved overseas.

I design stuff

I focus on parts for smaller fountains but also get involved with other projects that capture my imagination.

I prefer to work in bronze because it's durable, relatively easy to work with and it offers a wealth of finishing options. But I'm tempted to make a few things in Stainless Steel.

It will take months not weeks. I hate to burst your bubble, but the process takes time, If you're in a hurry then this isn't for you.

It's not cheap A medium sized custom spout like the Karlo will cost about $4500 to design and make.

You may not need a custom design It might be possible to slightly modify an existing item to meet your needs. Ummm... somebody may already make what you want

Can't find what you need?

We make the spouts we sell. This allows considerable control over the finished product. And, since we’re not producing the spouts in gargantuan batches, small changes to one or two spouts aren’t a problem. Simple modifications like changing the plumbing connection can be handled in a couple of days. More radical interventions requiring changes to the general shape are costlier and can take a couple of months.
