“Northwest Fountain” by George Tsutakawa/Spike Mafford photo

The centerpiece of the Seattle Sheraton’s new Fountain Wine Bar & Lounge might look familiar to fans of Seattle painter/sculptor George Tsutakawa. It’s his “Northwest Fountain,” commissioned in 1982 by the Sheraton, placed in Fuller’s restaurant and then disassembled and put in storage in 2006 when Fuller’s closed. Tsutakawa’s son Gerard restored and reassembled his father’s fountain, which was unveiled at the lounge’s recent grand opening. Over his lifetime, George Tsutakawa created more than 75 fountains, installed in the U.S., Canada and Japan. George Tsutakawa’s sumi painting of Mount Rainier also hangs in the Fountain Wine Bar. (Read about another “lost” Tsutakawa piece here.)
