A slate water feature offers the owner several advantages. These advantages encompass both aesthetic and practical concerns. Where fountains are concerned, there are few materials as established or widely-loved as is slate. Fountains made of this material offer a great deal of durability and the visual impact is something which never goes out of style.
A slate water fountain has the characteristic of mimicking very well the look of a natural waterfall. Slate becomes slightly darker in color when wet and this brings out the natural beauty of the material. Oftentimes, slate water fountains have other materials imbedded within the rock which adds exciting flecks of color and veins of detail to the fountain as it runs.
Slate fountains are available in so many styles that placement is essentially only limited by the owner's imagination. These fountains come in wall-hanging models, floor-mounted models and even in tabletop varieties. Placing these fountains depends up on the aesthetic goals of the designer. Fortunately, they are very flexible in their applications and one can be assured of their suitability.
Many slate fountains are combined with other materials to create a particularly dramatic effect. For instance, some slate water fountains have metal bases. The materials rather complement each other. Slate is a very complex material where color is concerned and there are generally complimentary colors which go along well with metal accents in any piece of slate.
Our fountains are of the highest quality. Slate water fountains are among the most durable of products and will provide many years of use. Slate, because it is a naturally-occurring material, offers fantastic variations between one piece and the next that make each fountain a truly unique piece and one which will stand out.
