This fountain actually has a crazy story attached to it. Joe and I met in October of 2004 and it was love at first site…..BUT the summer of 2004 I was actually walking down Passyunk Ave enroute to some adventure and I saw Joe and the guys working on the fountain. Joe’s cousin was actually contracting Colossus Granite to fabricate the fountain ledges and wrap. I worked with Joe’s cousin at the time and Joe’s Uncle was my landlord. When Joe’s cousin yelled “Hey Kat! What’s up?” I remember seeing Joey and waving hi. Who would have thought that on that day I would be waving to my future husband, father of our children and future business partner…. Who would think that the company that was installing the essential pieces to the long awaited East Passyunk Fountain would be mine one day… Life is crazy. Just don’t sweat the small stuff…embrace what’s infront of you and own any actions you take.
The stone in this application is simply 3cm Absolute Black. It has been installed for 10 years through all the elements and look how it has held up!! Amazing! Granite is durable people!! It’s the surface that just keeps giving back!
This is just too cool not to share!! We recently finished up a penthouse apartment in Rittenhouse at the Barclay building. It’s public knowledge between the realtor and Colossus that the stone sold the place. The unit wasn’t even finished yet and a potential buyer walked in and became the owner!!! The kitchen sold it!! 1.7 mILLLLLLLLLion for the unit and the Super White Quartzite 9 piece island was the show stopper!! It was our creative concept to fabricate and install this long island being that we had to overcome height and length restrictions with the Barclays elevators. We brought 5 pieces of 3cm Super White and 4 pieces of 3cm Absolute Black to the unit and the magic began. It took all day but the outcome is so amazing!! I would love to get into the unit now to see the kitchen complete but the owner has moved in and wants to keep it all to himself!! I hope he’s not upset that I just unearthed his big secret!! DISCLAIMER TO THE LADIES…If your out and about at ROUGE or PARC and you meet a handsome guys in his 30’s and he’s bragging about his 9 pieces of what not back at his place…..Its his island top!! LOL Enjoy the pics!! It’s Fabrication Friday peeps!!
Just a girly girl in a male dominated industry trying to get my point across…
