Fountain Restoration

This fountain was created by Gay Hanna, and is owned by Amy Vigilante and Taylor Dickerson of Gainesville, FL. It is about 13 yrs old and in desperate need of attention after years of sitting outside in the Florida humidity. The wooden basin, lined with fiberglass, was totally rotten and the copper and brass elements had lost their original verdigris and tarnished a dark mineral rust. After re-building the basin, cleaning all metal parts, and re-applying patina, the sculpture was ready to soothe and calm for many more years!
