Cascading Water-Features to Enhance Your Decor
Captivating, alluring, enduring and enchanting are just a few of the words that come to mind when looking at these emotionally uplifting wall waterfalls created by Slate In Design.
Down at the Calgary Home + Interior Design Show I came across an oasis in a sea of vendors and as I stopped in to talk with the owner and creator of these magnificent works of art using natural and man-made materials,
I was intrigued to learn more about the company’s humble beginnings to where they are today with an incredible demand for these one of a kind artistic masterpieces.
If you are a connoisseur of art you can appreciate the endless possibilities for the application of these 3-D wall waterfalls, from the refuge of your spa bathroom, to your living room feature wall, to the foyer of a major corporation, these works of art can find a home just about anywhere.
Owner Clint Eklund invented and developed the wall fountains Slate in Design has pioneered since 1995. These custom made indoor and outdoor waterfalls and fountains are beautiful three dimensional sculptural pieces of art that can be finished in copper, stainless steel, powder coating, stones, special textural glass or 3 form glass & acrylic.
Quoted as saying, We are master water wall builders and work off a portfolio of over 2,000 ecstatic buyers in Canada alone. It is easy to see why Clint is so stoked about what he does.
Everyone knows about the calming effects of running water, combine this with the visual beauty of slate (the texture, feel and color of the material) and the shimmering, if not enchanting effects of cascading water over a textural or translucent background and you have a masterpiece that engages your senses to positive affect.
Undulating Mass Appeal
Art itself is such a subjective thing but when a piece of art can transcend cultures and ages then you know you are onto something big.
The calming affect of the water as it gently trickles down the face of the fountain and through the pebbles below provides an environment of tranquility unique to Slate in Design wall fountains; this is something that traditional wall art just can’t do.
You do have the option of manually refilling the fountains or you can purchase a model that replenishes itself through a timer. If you are refilling manually, it is recommend that you do so every seven to ten days.
Another benefit of owning a Slate In Design wall waterfall is that it cleans the air by attracting airborne particles to the water which are later filtered out. And let us not forget about humidifying the surrounding environment which is good for plants and helps keep the integrity of the wood products in your home or office.
Calcium deposits in the water can be dealt with through a Mineral Deposit solution which cleans and prevents mineral deposits or you can use distilled water to reduce maintenance.
Using 3D software, Slate In Design Ltd. can customize the wall waterfalls to meet just about any size, from small wall hung fixtures that you can hang in your bathroom to full wall sized models, to meet the customers’ imagination.
Laser Etching, sandblasting (for raised detail) or your choice of slate will all contribute to the uniqueness of your fountain as well as your choice of lighting.
