Location is a fluid affair. We love the idea of our Adobe Jar in Swamp glistening at the center of a green lawn. As a centerpiece this fountain balances and formalizes.
This Kos Jar in Saffron Sky occupies a corner of the house where it can be seen from large kitchen windows inside. This jar makes such a statement that foliage isn't needed.
Also in Saffron sky, the Zeus Jar has a wide mouth that invites one to peer into its deep, serene well, as water trickles over its romantic handles and bass relief.
With its sharp vertical lines and a lofty stature, the Tall Starfruit cuts an impressive yet organic profile against foliage.
