Contemporary Urn Fountains Many urn fountains in contemporary styles are made from two primary materials: Fiberglass or Cast Stone Concrete. The basic construction is an urn, usually in a base, and water flows up through the urn, and falls to the water basin below, recycled by a fountain pump. Contemporary style urn fountains almost always follow either Mediterranean or Asian fountain designs from history.

It should be a solid fountain, so the urn is not tilted, and the water in the fountain can flow evenly down each side of the urn. Many landscapers prefer to place outdoor urn fountains where dramatic light at sundown can reflect off the water clinging to the cylindrical shape of an outdoor urn fountain.
