Learn about our brands
First, we only select and work with quality manufacturers of ceramic product. Not every ceramic pot can be turned into a vase. Firing temperatures, ceramic thickness, and heating/cooling times determine whether a vase can withstand the constant pressure of water inside. The rustic stoneware and glazed earthenware fountain vases featured in our collection have been created on pottery wheels, from clay soils, or through the use of press molds. Each hand-glazed fountain vase has an individual character and is a distinctive, original piece of art. Our vases are high-fired, robust, durable, and made to last and deliver for years of enjoyment.
Upon arrival to our facility we inspect and clean each vase so as to weed out the defects. Once a vase is determined suitable it is drilled and plumbed with a 1” bulkhead fitting. Each vase comes with a standpipe assembly with flow-control ball valve.
If a light kit is ordered we also drill a hole for the light cord to exit the bottom of the vase. The light fixture is then affixed to the standpipe assembly. Many clients prefer to light their vase from within as well as from the outside with a spotlight effect. You can even upgrade to the color changing LED bulb with remote so the customer can change the color of the flowing water!
Connecting the vase to the pump system is simple using Aqua Bella’s proprietary kink-free tubing with quick disconnect system. Simply connect the quick disconnect to the underside of the vase as well as at the discharge of the pump and you are ready for water!
