Granite Spheres And Balls

The Floating and Rotating Granite Sphere fountain is truly an amazing piece of art.  thousands of pounds of a sphere made of highly polished granite sits on top of a matching granite base, easily rotating on its own on a horizontal axis all day long.  if someone comes to touch it, the sphere will follow the movement of their hand, easily turning around in the direction of the axis their hand seems to push it.  how can the human hand, even a child's hand move thousands of pounds of solid granite?
 

SPHERE FOUNTAINS & SCULPTURES granite spheres and balls:  Our explanation is scientific, but is as easily explained as the pressure of the water under the perfect precision cut sphere, lifts and turns the sphere, normally in a horizontal axis, but can be made to also turn vertically.  No matter how the initial movement, the human hand can turn the sphere in any direction, by merely pushing on the sphere.  A thin layer of water lays below the sphere, supporting it, and gently flowing out from underneath the massive stone sphere.  WATERFOUNTAINS.COM floating granite sphere fountain.  This is famous artwork with architectural design is art for sale.


We make these precision cut spheres and matching bases in many sizes, all custom made directly for the  customer.  Normally, our starting range for the commercial customer is with a 24" diameter granite sphere (730 lbs), heavy enough that no group of humans are going to be able to lift nor push the sphere off the base unit.  The base units can be made in any shape the customer desires, with most either being round or square.  Many base styles fill our website for examples to chose from, but again, we are capable of making any size and/or shape base.  Stone spheres as they increase in size, geometrically increase quickly in weight, i.e., 

24" = 730 lbs.....30" = 1480 lbs.....36" = 2650 lbs.....48" = 6200 lbs.....60" = 12100 lbs.....72" = 21000 lbs.....all the way to the largest of the granite spheres that can be made and transported:  120" = 95500 lbs (25 automobiles piled on top of one another)!!!!!!!!   

Of course this weight does NOT even include the base, which is normally even heavier than the sphere.  Planning is required to be able to install this weight in the location you desire to see this fabulous sculpture.


With each sculpture that we fabricate and ship to our worldwide clients, we provide the recommended equipment required as well as our professional recommendations on the plumbing and electrical setup.  We provide written and video instructions for installation, and are available to discuss the entire project with your contractor and/or architectural staff at any time and throughout the entire process.
