Gaga Design: 10 Nayer Kazemi Water Art™ Fountains

Obviously, we can't keep the water running in the shower all day, but if our concern was only our inner peace, we would.   There's a much more practical, ecological, and yes, spectacular way to experience the most soothing sound in the world, a fountain.  Once you see Nayer Kazemi's Water Art™, you'll be simply gaga for them.

Water is a statement.  It says 'this home is a serene place and  it wants all who enter to feel the same. It is so at  home in interior design, whether as the centerpiece of a table, a room divider, or a flowing wall.

Kazemi is a sculptor, a painter, a metal-worker, a wood-worker, a plasterer... These are skills she learned throughout her design studies in her native Iran and here, in California.  But above all she's a designer; when Kazemi creates a fountain, she also creates your entire interior.  Kazemi designs fountains that, no matter how small, don't just sit in the background recycling water.  When you see these 10 fountain designs, I think you will also see that environment.

 

UPDATE: Many of the fountains highlighted here have sold and are no longer available. The latest fountains that are available are listed here.

6. Nayer Kazemi Ripple Wall Fountain

The solid copper Ripple Wall Fountain is a dynamic and dramatic piece of art. The fire finish brings out a rainbow of colors in the copper.  And the copper rippling creates hundreds of water flow patterns in the fountain.

Another flame finished copper fountain made three levels higher by natural slate steps.  The blue watery surface makes the table fountain look like a floating pagoda.

I can't pick a favorite of all of Ms. Kazemi's Water Art.  It's all exquisite and most of it, expensive. Once you've seen the Water Art fountains, though, it's hard to even look at the mass produced fountains. I'd rather save for one of Kazemi's fountains. 

Oh, by the way, the Sunterra line of fountain pumps are very reliable and not too bad energy-wise.
