Ceramic is an excellent material for tabletop water fountains. It can be handcrafted into countless designs and can be painted in a virtually limitless number of gorgeous designs. Ceramic tabletop fountains can be made to look very contemporary, or they can be made to look like aged copper or even stone. This gives designers far more flexibility than with some other materials like stone or metal. Other materials, like stones or bamboo, can also be added for a nice effect. Ceramic is also very easy to maintain.
