We specialize in finding extraordinary ways of using ordinary household products. Chances are you’ll have seen indoor water features fetching more than a pretty penny on sale, but trust us when we say there’s nothing more deeply satisfying than enjoying the results of your own work. Not that there’s a great deal of work involved – you could easily knock one of these beauties up with just a few hours to spare!

Blissful Beauty

As you can see, the main component used to create the fountain is the simple terracotta pot. Other than this, all you’ll really need to get up and running is a very basic fountain pump, the correct adhesive and any other decorative touches you’d like to add. Spend hundreds of dollars on a generic store-bought feature or create something truly unique at home for next to nothing – no prizes for guessing which of the two you’d find us doing!
