Who We Are
Each morning we get together to discuss what we are working on, what needs to be done and in what order this day and to present any concepts anyone has for future development. This is a crucial part of our program as it keeps us on track, identifies any areas of difficulties and lays the groundwork for upcoming endeavors.

At Indoor Fountains we work as a team, brainstorming, generating and modifying concepts and often collaborating on the same fountains with each doing a part.
At the same time each of us has his and her own independent role wherein we apply our skills and talents to do what we do best.
