Nautilus Fountains and other fountains

 

Nautilus Fountains and other fountains

Nautilus Fountains and other fountains is a desscription of our Fountain Designs. I have always liked the Nautilus shape. The “Spira mirabilis” and logarithmic spiral as described by Descartes and often found in nature.

When we were completing Villa Madonna on the beach, the owner asked what I was going to do under an exposed staircase on the loggia (see before image). It is in my pocket, I said. (I knew the question was coming and had sketched it a few minutes earlier with a ball pen and literally had it in the back pocket of the bermuda shorts).

So I said Voilà!

Water in movement with sound is always a good accent, rhythmic and refreshing.

At the same Villa opposite the Loggis we did a Classic Fountain.

Classic Fountain at Villa on the Beach. An antique Lion's head from where the water spouts, and falls into a recipient, before it fall again, Hopefully more sound.

While at the entrance Plaza you walk in betwen two fountains.

A second Naurtilus Fountain was done at a different location. At Hacienda on the Beach for a Hollywood star.

Also for the same Villa we did two similar fountains which are a local shell based sculptures.
