LED Waterfall Lighting: Fire & Water

Watch the interesting visual effects of having LED lighting come up from below shining onto the water rather than from top down at 6:07.

Lighting plays an important role in the look and feel of a water feature. Lighting effects can completely change the way a water feature looks and feels. The two definitely go hand in hand. WaterfallNow offers custom lighting options including programmable LEDs that are bluetooth compatible so you can adjust the settings from your mobile device.

 

Fire fountains have been around for a decade but are becoming increasingly popular for water fountain shows.

WaterfallNow Showroom Location TBD

Due to popular demand we’ve decided it is time to open a showroom for standalone units.

We will be located in Surrey, BC and will have 30~ pieces on display.

The exact open date is not yet known however we will notify previous customers as  well as others in the Lower Mainland to come down and visit us in store.

We may hold a giveaway on several indoor fountains at that time.

If you have a warehouse, retail, or showroom space available send us an email to [email protected]

We are also open to partnership opportunities.

Front Yard Water Features Feng Shui: Wealth Flows To You

Feng Shui Entryway:

 

It is recommended to put an object that would thrive well in any season by the entryway to your door. Water features, fountains, and waterfalls are a popular garden ornament or decoration that symbolizes wealth and prosperity.

The entrance of a home is a often good place to put objects that trigger positive thoughts or feelings.

Feng Shui practitioners hold that objects hold thoughts and feelings that we personally associate with them.

Retail Feng Shui

Just as copywriters use words to influence people’s thought patterns, retail designers are also aware that creating a positive shopping environment and experience for customers who walk into their store can increase the urge to buy more.

Having a water feature outside of a shopping mall, hospital, hotel, or any other establishment or even inside of the entryway area can improve the feng shui of a space.

At the same time for good Feng Shui it is best to avoid clutter. You don’t want to place too many objects near the entrway of your establishment or home.

A reflecting pool, also referred to as reflection pool or reflection pond (although not really a pond) is a water feature commonly found in gardens, parks, and memorial sites. It usually consists of a very shallow pool of water, without fountain jets or turbulence, for a reflective surface.

Peter Heiss

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/peter-heiss-obituary?pid=1000000181129348

Son of an architect father, Peter sculpted artificial rock for nearly 30 years. He gained an early appreciation of aesthetics and the dynamics of form at an early age, and began working at the craft of artificial rock sculpting in his late teens, while concurrently embarking on diving and undersea explorations along the West Coast and throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

Peter’s career began as a one of a group of artists hired to sculpt the Vancouver Aquarium’s first major theme exhibit, the Amazon Gallery. Peter’s talents were soon recognized and he was retained by the Vancouver Aquarium to head the design and construction of the rockwork surrounding the Killer Whale Habitat. A major undertaking, the pool was one of the first in the world to reflect an actual natural habitat, as Peter’s design called for a backdrop of rockwork based on Gulf Island sandstone formations.

Once traveling as far north as Arctic Bay, Baffin Island for the design and creation of his Beluga Whale Pool at Vancouver Aquarium, Peter continues to regularly explore the West Coast and other locations to take molds of rock formations for his work.

Peter Heiss designed and built outdoor rockwork pools, hot tubs, and water features for dozens of homeowners, and also for high profile resorts including Kingfisher Lodge, The Pacific Inn and Pacific Shores.

Peter was well renowned for his commercial and public spaces work with The Vancouver International Airport, Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, CFOX Kids Park, and many other public and commercial projects. Peter also led projects for clients in China, the Caribbean, and across Canada.

In addition to all his own projects, Peter was contracted extensively over the past twenty years as the lead designer and builder for other rockwork firms such as Arcon Rock and Waterscapes and Raincity Rock and Waterscapes.

A graduate of The Emily Carr School of Art, Peter was an accomplished painter as well as a sculptor, with a strong affinity for realism and a love of natural subjects. His work is marked by a personal commitment to excellence and meticulous attention to detail.

In his spare time, Peter carved Totems, re-builds outboard motors, casts jewelry, and cared for his own aquarium of exotic animals. To relax, Peter spent time in his two-storey 8-seater hot tub, complete with rock climbs, waterfalls, grottos, warm shallows and a bird’s nest lookout.

Peter was a remarkable man who cared for people and loved to spend time with his family.
The last time I had a chance to speak with Peter was while he was having a family gathering with his grandchildren playing in the background. I had promised to meet with him one more time before the kidney cancer had taken his life. A kind man, Peter will be missed.

Tibetan Singing Bowl Vancouver: Nice Finds In Yaletown

Tibetan Singing Bowl: Best One I’ve Ever Seen

On a recent trip to Yaletown Vancouver, I stumbled across a store called Kaarigar Handicrafts store that offers authentic hand crafted goods. You can learn more about their back story by visiting their online store at kaarigarhandicrafts.com or by visiting them in Yaletown at

Address: 1012 Mainland St, Vancouver, BC V6B, Canada
Phone:+1 604-767-6630
Upon visiting the store, I learned of many interesting things about the authentic crafts carried in their store and of their support effort to the local artisans. There are many interesting products in the store that have lots of deep meaning and sentiment behind them. You can tell by the details that these are not your run of the mill factory made products. Everything is unique in its own way – they are hand crafted by skilled artisans. There will come a day in the future when these types of things will be difficult to find as the trend towards mass production through automation continues. These pieces are rare and often under appreciated in todays culture.

When you buy a high quality authentic tibetan singing sound bowl you can immediately notice the difference in resonance when compared with a cheaply made singing bowl. This is true for both the trained as well as the untrained ear. Something mass produced in a factory with cheap parts to act as a replica of something authentic will almost never be as good as an original piece. The resonance and structural integrity are of a very high quality when compared to something made off of a mold on a factory line using cheaper parts and with a less complicated process. Externally it may look the same but steps were missed.

There is a lot of history behind tibetan singing sound bowls with some of the more common usages being for meditation and sound healing. These things are very beneficial especially for people living in Vancouver where people are often stressed out.

If you are interested in finding the perfect authentic Indian gift for your significant other or best friend visit Kaarigar Handicrafts in Yaletown Vancouver BC Canada on Mainland St one day and spend some time learning about the culture and history behind each piece of hand crafted art.
