Chrysalis Mosaic Fountain private commission
9 x 16 feet Hotel Santa Fe Spa © 2009
The Chrysalis Mosaic Fountain is a large double sided fountain with water that drops from the ceiling into the space between the front and the back of the mosaic. It is named Chrysalis as a world of crystal forming and emerging. The front is made to look vaguely as a crystal cave. Large and small crystals populate the large expanse of wall and flanking side arms. Centered is a curved recess with water running down into a small pool. The are surrounding area is enclosed without windows. One feels enveloped by the monochromatic colors the sounds and coolness of the flowing water.
