Library Journal Review

People love small indoor fountains for their pleasant, calming gurgle and the effect of bringing the outdoors inside. All that is required is a waterproof container, plastic tubing, and a submersible circulating pump. Add some decorative objects to hide the waterworks, and you have a fountain that is as self-contained as a lamp. This book outlines the basics of fountain materials and assembly and provides step-by-step projects by 12 designers. The materials are as ordinary as beach pebbles or as unusual as a recycled computer monitor. A delightful addition to craft or garden collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
