This civic fountain was a massive challenge to install. The joints are all 1/4″, and the glass is directly sandwiched between the stones. The tolerances were practically nonexistent.
It was late Fall when we put this in, and quite cold, as I recall.
It looks like we managed to get it done in time for Christmas.
The Creekside Blues and Jazz Fest is held in this park every summer. When I go to the fest, every year I overhear all kinds of comments about the park and the stone work. Some are actually very funny.
I haven’t been to the park in a few years. I’ll get updated pics and check on it this summer. I really enjoyed the building of this park. It was a pleasure to work as part of a team.
I was down below, telling Jack (leg shown here) what to tell Larry, the crane operator. I have immense respect for the skill of a good crane operator. Larry was one of the best I’ve ever worked with.
